You Say It’s Your Birthday

Today is Dale’s birthday and I can’t think of a better way for you all to be a part of the celebration than by giving you the chance to watch a video clip of his band.

Happy Birthday, Dale! I love you. And I’m pretty sure all my readers do, too.

  1. Great video! The little girls in the front sure were grooving to Dale and the Duds!

    Happy Birthday, Dale! Carole’s right; we do all love you 🙂

  2. Lordy he’s adorable grrl… you give him a big ol’ smooch from us out here in Pac NW.. Happy Birthday Dale. You are most definitely the prince to our favorite girl Carole. I’m glad that she has such a cutie for her love. Must be the most perfect match I’ve seen. Rock on. (thanks for the fabulous video C – you rock too)

  3. Happy Belated Birthday Dale!!
    (I’m behind, what can I say!)

    I hope it just keeps getting better!
    Rock on with your bad self!

  4. Aw, shucks! I hate that I missed the actual day, but happy belated bithday, Dale!

    Y’all should both know that this video set the weebeastie to dancing in utero. I think that says great things about both the music and the babe’s taste, m’self.

  5. Hi Carole,
    First..let me say~Those socks are beautiful…you are gifted! I wanted to comment on your “100 things about you”~I hope this is the correct forum to do it under? Our husbands were in scouts together many years ago (Billy S.-Dale will know ) and spoke for a few minutes last night at the Plymouth concert..which was terrific for those of you who have not heard Carole’s husband’s band…you must catch Dale and The Duds sometime!Anyway….I mentioned I saw your website and thought you HAD to be from Brockton..Cape Cod Cafe Pizza-well…you haven’t had pizza unless you’ve has theirs!My favorite as well. Also…graduating from such a large class..I was right-he told me you graduated from BHS. I am from Brockton(although now I am a hick from the bogs of Plympton! I love it!)and a bit older than you (I graduated in 77)and thought how wonderful to see some of your 100 things…the Cod Pizza,Brockton High, Wearing your husbands flannel shirts(me,too~well…MY husband’s shirts: ) ),etc…I just wanted to say hello. I grew up on Auburn St.(South side)and went to the Gilmore School and South Jr. High. I meant to ask Dale your maiden name~mine is Sabine. Dale may know my brother Marc…he still works for Shaw’s(started at the BPM) and also had a band years ago for a brief time called “The Forgotten” I loved when they practiced in our attic as a kid! I have enjoyed reading your stuff here…I stumbled upon it while looking for the start time of the Plymouth Concert…I may meet you sometime as I visit the library you work at…I’ll be sure to say hi! By the you sell those socks? Have you tried dying with cranberries? (we have a little bog here in Plympton)Have a nice day!

  6. Hello!
    I saw Dale and the Dudes play at my (now) fiance’s conference a couple of years ago, and they were amazing! I would really like to hire them to play at my wedding ceremony next June.

    Carole – if you could contact me at, and let me know how I can arrange this – i would REALLY appreciate it!
