Paul LaPlaca is a multi-instrumentalist with a long history of touring and playing with notable artists like Chris Caffery (TSO/ Savatage), Ted Poley (Danger Danger), Carnivore, Von LMO, and many others. A two-time winner of the Western New York’s Hottest Guitarist competition, Paul made a name for himself in the regional club scene in Buffalo, NY before moving to NYC in 1994. Although his college studies were in radio and television, it wasn’t until internet radio made it possible to produce a show from home that Paul was able to develop his show, 6 Degrees With Paul LaPlaca. Based on the "Six Degrees of Separation" concept, that any two people are six or fewer acquaintances apart, this radio program aims to connect the host to a wide variety of music based on performance, recording, or tech work. Previous guests have included Vernon Reid, Alex Skolnick, and Joey Cassata.
