Nocturnal Journal: On the Road (7/2/16)
Dane Neal is in for Dave Hoekstra, as Dave, fresh off a three-week road trip, takes his camper van to the 35th Annual American Music Festival at FitzGerald’s Nightclub in Berwyn. Dave checks in from the fest with Dane, and explains his project The Camper Book, and talks about his road trip, the specifics and the vibe of the van itself, some of the people he encountered along the way, and the sense of community among folks camping on the road.
FitzGerald’s owner Bill FitzGerald joins the show to talk about the American Music Festival, and his philosophy in picking bands and creating a relaxed “anti-festival” atmosphere at the club.
Dane Neal also shares some in-studio segments with hospitality expert Christine Deussen of Deussen Global, Food Network chef Tyler Florence, PBS chef and author Sarah Moulton, and the legendary Jacques Pepin.
