The rumors are true: Friday is my last day as Music Director at WFMU.

WFMU is in the middle of its hiring process for a new MD, and Myriel will be taking over for the next month during this transition. I feel incredibly lucky to have worked with all you people who love WFMU just as much as I do! Thank you to all the amazing labels, artists, DJs, volunteers, and listeners I've worked with during my time here. I'll still be part of the FMU family and keeping up with my radio show, so stay in touch with me here
