Here it is! The final Dave’s Lounge podcast, a look back at the trip around the sun that was, and music that made an impact on us along the way, with a few parting thoughts at the top of the show, as is tradition with the Yearbook episodes.
The Dave’s Lounge podcast might be going away, but that doesn’t mean I’m going away. Keep an eye on the DavesLounge.com site, which contains links to my social media feeds, my Mixcloud channel, and the playlists I’ve created on Spotify.
Thanks to Bob Burtman and the staff at WHUP for being so welcoming of this show for the last two years, and best of luck to all the staff and DJs here. Support community radio wherever you are, and support your favorite indie musicians and podcasts whenever you can.

Thanks to all of you for stopping by for the last 12 ½ years. I’ll see y’all somewhere down the road.
I am sorry to see you go! I have so much enjoyed your podcasts and unique style of broadcasting. Here is to opening up new opportunities and new projects in 2018!
Thanks for listening, Joanne!
Thank you for these past 12 years of amazing music. I have been listening to you since day 1. I am truly going to miss your podcast. Many of my running races and training happened while listening to your podcast… I wish you the best of luck and hopefully we will get to hear some of your own music. Take care and thank you again
You trained to Dave’s Lounge? That’s quite the contrast to all the listeners out there who fell asleep to it over the years. Thanks for listening!
This is my “THE NOD” to you. You know what I am referring to. For those who do not, listen to: http://daveslounge.com/2009/04/30/daves-lounge-156-the-4th-anniversary-mix/
I am truly grateful I discovered your podcast — it accompanied me through thick and thin, highs and lows, it helped me in countless ways over the years. I hardly ever managed to be “caught up” to the current edition.
You know, one of the most enjoyable aspects of your podcast was your thoughts you shared with us. I love your voice, but more importantly, I got to experience a beautiful mind from afar. That is what I will miss the most sorely. I am sure you are going to make more music (I wish it for you very much) and continue to be a DJ, you may put more streaming playlists together (wow for the ten years’ worth of yearbooks on Spotify), which is awesome and I am looking forward to them… but.
I appreciate your amazing dedication for the past 12 years. I can’t even fathom how many hours of preparation each and every show must have been not only for the collecting, reviewing, and editing of the music, but also thinking about your themes and leading thoughts. Your guidance in the music has been phenomenal.
I also want to express my sincere thanks to Melissa for supporting you in this endeavor. We are not alone on the desert and our activities have practical effects on the ones around us, which needs acknowledgment.
I’ll keep coming back to the lounge when I purchase new music.
All the best to you wherever your path may lead you.
P.S. Actually many of the old links donát work (tried some on the above linked page)
Thanks for your support over the years. It’s gratifying to know this show has had a positive impact on people. Shoot me an email to let me know what links might not be working for you. I’ll try to fix them when I can.
Dave, thank you so much for putting together all the music over the years. I’ve been listening since 2008, and I discovered a lot of great bands because of Dave’s Lounge. I wish you the best of luck with your new projects!
Thanks for listening!
Hey, I wish to thank you for all the great work you did during all episodes. I listened to them from the very first and I’m very happy to discover all those songs and artists thru your podcast.
It was always a great moment when I launch my player and waiting for those ambiances you brought.
Again, many many thanks to you. I really wish you the best for your future projects!

Thanks for listening, Phil!
