Lives Radio Show & Podcast – Dave Leibowitz

David Leibowitz talks about the music scene, his favorite bands and albums of 2021, and some amusing anecdotes of encounters with Saint Vincent, Carrie Brownstein, and Paul Westerberg, to name a few. Dave is a life-long music fan, record collector, and music business professional. He first entered the music business as a teenager in the 1980s, when he published his own fanzine dedicated to the band KISS. In the 90s, he formed his own independent record label, Mafia Money Records, where he produced and released records from artists around the country. For the last 17 years, he has hosted the weekly radio show, New Day Rising, which introduces listeners to new, independent artists. In addition to the radio show, he also hosts the Youtube channel and podcast, The Dark Stuff, which focuses on record collecting, interviews, and live music concerts.

Born in sight of England’s Canterbury Cathedral, I’ve called the American Midwest home since 2004. Formerly a London lawyer and an Omaha brand consultant, since 2016 I have dedicated 100% of my time and efforts to Squishtalks, a conversation catalyst I started in 2010. Squishtalks has collaborated with numerous community groups and businesses.

Believing in conversation’s power to connect, in 2015 I undertook the community project “a couple of 830 mile long conversations,” adventuring in an RV for four weeks along side roads and among small towns to talk with Nebraskans, discovering the lives, cultures and stories of people I met. Currently I am engaged in “Stories from the Redline” in collaboration with The Union for Contemporary Art’s exhibition exploring the pernicious human impact of redline housing policies.

In addition, I cofounded the creativity agency Gilbert+Chittenden in 2017, collaborating with creativity expert Dan Gilbert using design thinking to help individuals and organizations creatively realize their best futures.

I hope you'll join me in listening to the compelling stories from my fascinating guests on Lives Radio Show & Podcast.
