Michael Dalton (also known by his alter ego's name Dolly Diamond) is an international theatre and cabaret star who lives across the road from a hospital (trust me, the relevance becomes clear as the podcast rolls along). Originally from the United Kingdom he now lives in the leafy southeast of Melbourne and is one of the country's hardest working performers.
Listeners to Joy FM will know him as one half of The Royal Daltons who sadly retired from the airwaves in late 2015, but they can now drink in Dalton one more time as we talk about rubbish gigs, what not to say to people after a rubbish gig, school punishments, Masterchef, The Brady Bunch, lookie-likies, the greatest brothers-based TV concept ever (it involves the Sheens, the Baldwins and the Daddos - my idea, hands off), drug-taking, horrible Christmases, being a child actor on the West End, Kylie Minogue, Eddie Perfect to Tim Minchin, and a tiny bit of Australian TV slander. Just a bit. I've edited around it so we can still get jobs.
From London to Ringwood, we cover it all, to the sweet, sweet sounds of every noisy thing that decided to walk past in the window in the 90 minutes I was at his flat. Man...just incredible...
Note: There's a lot less swearing in this one. Still has two proper swears and a few mild ones.
