June 9, 2003: The Twin Atlas spins in, I spin out for the summer.
Listen to this show: RealAudio
By now, some of you have discovered that I've not been included on WFMU's 2003 Summer Schedule. After a good 16 & 1/2-year-long run I've been asked to sit out the next on-air schedule to give someone else a chance at a better air slot. (To be honest, I've been hosting the Monday afternoon slot since June of 1994 --a good long stint in one spot for a WFMU DJ-- and it's just my turn to sit out.) Sure, I’m a bit disappointed in the decision but in a way it’s really not so bad for me. I get the summer off, which means I get an extra day off every week like normal people (Wednesday through Sunday, is a typical work week for me --although I wouldn’t exactly classify myself as "normal"). The time off will give me a chance to recharge as well.
Program Director Brian Turner has reassured me that I’ll return to the schedule in the autumn, and I may also do the occasional fill-in, so I’ll be back before you know it. Check my home page (linked above) from time to time --I'll post any upcoming fill-ins as they come up. And don’t forget my archive shows are all still available to check out through my playlist pages.

Live performance by The Twin Atlas (Sean Byrne / Luke Zaleski / Kevin Allens) (photos soon)
Dreamy, atmospheric acoustic-pop is what comes springing from the mind of Sean Byrne (who's also spun a few tunes with Lenola, Mazarin, and Matt Pond PA) and Luke Zaleski. The Twin Atlas' 3rd CD is "Bring Along the Weather," and they played this time as a trio, adding guitarist Keith to the pleasant mix.
