What Makes Madonna Girl Dale Tick; A Look Inside One of Brooklyn Park’s Most Famous Residents (E-21)

WARNING: Some Explicit Content & Language
Dale Crites is someone you may not know. Or maybe you just don’t recognize the name.  Dale, a gay male, is also known as (at various times) Madonna Girl Dale, Brittney Girl Dale, or Ke$ha Girl Dale and she can typically be found along Ritchie Highway in Brooklyn Park and Glen Burnie, Maryland.

Where did she come from? What makes her tick? She stops dancing long enough to sit down with the Maryland Crabs to open up during a surprisingly poignant discussion. From sexual abuse as a child, to the death of a close friend, to her relationship with the police, and why performing in the streets of Anne Arundel County is what she does.

This frank, unvarnished and (at times) decidedly R-Rated conversation will open your eyes to someone who is struggling with some deep seated issues and just trying to get along in life.

You can read more about Madonna Girl Dale in a photo essay done by The Baltimore Sun in 2013.

The Crabs don’t judge. We hope you don’t either. Just take a listen.

And….a HUGE thank you to Nicole and the gang at Chesapeake Arts Center in Brooklyn Park for allowing us to use a spare room.  If you have not been to CAC...you definitely should!

Thank you to everyone who wrote with suggestions for upcoming episodes. We are on it.  Coming up next week will be a conversation with the latest candidate to throw their hat into the ring for Annapolis Mayor– State Senator John Astle. And down the line, the founders of The Annapolis Film Festival, Mayor Pantelides, Dr. Jana Davis from the Chesapeake Bay Trust and a few more surprises. You will want to stay tuned every Thursday.

  • Last week we crabbed with Anne Arundel County State’s Attorney Wes Adams and had a great conversation about crime in Anne Arundel County, the heroin epidemic, the success of his Drug Court, and the case that made him most proud.  We may have touched on that old Winnebago he used for the campaign too!
  • Marc Rodriguez. You may not know who he is right now, but you will. A sharp guy who has been working with Alderman Littmann and is poised to make a run for office in the upcoming Annapolis elections.
  • Governor Larry Hogan invited us into his private office for Jaegerbombs and wings while we watched the Ravens.  OK, so maybe it was more of a conversation with the State Police watching over us making sure we did not swipe the guitar off his office wall…but we did have a great conversation.

Oh hell…just go back and listen to the ones you have not heard!  And PLEASE be sure to tell your friends about us!
