Dean Delray is a newcomer to comedy, but not to life. He has a rock and roll past that led him across the country and overseas, crossing paths with The Rolling Stones, Sammy Hagar, Tom Petty, Jakob Dylan and many others. But as Dean tells Marc, the pull of comedy was too strong to avoid. This episode is sponsored by Comedy Central and Stamps.com.

    Wow...this was an exceptional show! Initially, I anticipated to hear the trials, travails and cricket-chirping experiences of a comedian's first year, but was instead taken on this insane journey through the life of an authentic "dude." The episode rarely touched on DelRay's comedy---but with a life like that, does it matter? Marc always knows the questions to ask. He gets to the heart of the person through casual inferences, or shared experiences that we've all gone through (well, some of us, anyway). When I re-listened to this episode, personal memories of my past were coming to me like a light show in my brain! When I hear someone like DelRay referencing Biafra and 'chicken piss,' I know I'm not alone in my past. I haven't partied with the likes of Keith Richards, but I've spent my time in the sun and I've come out the other side. This is why I'm a Marc Maron fan...he has more often than not shared similar experiences with the individual he interviews. Not only do we get to absorb (or if you're lucky, relate to) the experience, we almost become a part of it. It's just...incredible.

    P.S.---Marc, thanks for going to look for my lost book at Crackers in Broad Ripple...I heard it was found but have yet to receive it. Someone at Crackers said they would send it to my home, but I probably haven't received it yet because I demanded that you sign it over the phone to a cocktail waitress. Nevertheless, your effort was much appreciated and made me love you more. Thanks again...and get your ass to Kentucky!

    Im an old school friend of Deans an a musician from San Francisco. I got chills hearing Dean Del Ray telling the story of his life that was also my life at the time, knowing every single spot he mentioned in the Bay Area and now on WTF, my favorite podcast with Mark Maron, one of the funniest comics Ove ever seen. A few memories; Linda Perry (my ex-band mate) working as a waitress at Spaghetti Western; Dean's annual Birthday show at the Stone where he played a different entire AC/DC album every year with rockstar special guests; Seeing his band Two-Lane Blacktop kill it every week during their year plus residency upstairs at the Paradise Lounge. Saw him at the punchline a couple months ago and he killed. Personal Keith and Mick stories! That was one entertaining WTF. Love ya' Dean! XO
