Who is Danny Coleman?


Danny Coleman has said, "My cousin gave me, 'Led Zeppelin IV' for my twelfth birthday and it literally changed my life forever." The receipt of that record was the impetus behind a career in music; eventually leading him to become a published entertainment journalist and radio personality. 

Faced with having to re-invent himself after several difficult life events including an unexpected severe back injury, he returned to the one constant in his life: music. 

It has been said that, "Necessity is the Mother of Invention" and 'Rock On Radio' is proof positive of that statement. Left unemployed and with his back to the wall he returned to his past after answering an ad which read, "Radio show hosts/ideas wanted" which had been posted by an AM station in South Central NJ. Coleman pitched the idea of giving unsigned indie artists a platform to be heard and "Rock On Radio" was born.

From the program sprung a journalism career and a resurgence in gigs as well as YouTube programs, "One More with Danny Coleman" and "What's Next? w/ Danny Coleman and Maryann Castello." 

"Rock On Radio" celebrated its 10th Anniversary on April 26, 2019 and can be found every Sunday evening at 7 p.m. EST on and in syndication throughout the week on multiple other outlets. 

Danny's "Rock On! this Week's Sound Bites" column is published weekly on and in syndication on several other sites as well. In this you will find an interview piece with a musician, entertainer or artist and event/venue listings for the coming week.

Music makes the world smaller, live, love and as always....ROCK ON!
