Where I Was...

Hello everyone-I just wanted to let you all know how sorry i was that I didn't make it to the Loop saturday. I had been in L.A. for a week first to work on a Grammy pre-show, then for a week of meetings. Due to the unforunate circumstance of being stuck for hours friday night in the Burbank Airport trying to get home, my flight took off 5 hours late. And then we were diverted from Kennedy on Jet Blue due to ice on the runway-so i arrived home early the next morning instead of 10 pm the night before-when i was scheduled to land.

I even spoke to the Loop's owner Bruce a couple of hours before my car was to pick me up saturday night-but due to absolute exhaustion-my half hour nap turned into 4 hours of dead to the world sleep and when i woke up, i was horrified to see it was 8:49 pm, my car service had left hours earlier, and I was stuck without a ride. Nonetheless, I was sad and dissapointed because I was so excited to see everyone.

I called Frank but by that time everyone was leaving. So accept my apology for not making it, and I promise to make the next one. At least I was there in spirit through the music and Frank Gibson's amazing slide show!

The Melody lives on forever.

the flight delays / cancellations have been really rough this weekend - especially for jet blue! i was going to try to fly out from LA as well for the reunion, but it looks like i might not have made it anyway with all the weather troubles.

i am sure everyone undersands...things like that happen.

here's a good excuse to plan another party, though! :)

Matt, you were absolutely missed, but you are WERE most definitely there in spirit (and your image was everywhere, including on a few t-shirts). And your capable comrades in spin more than held their own. Please make it next time...yes, there has to be a next time!

i was also hoping to make it to the loop for an evening of inspired music and to say hi to matt and sean and other melody veterans. that became impossible when my wife gave birth three weeks earlier. i certainly hope that the next melody reunion is soon and that i will be available.

Please Look At Our Advertisers (Or The Website Gets It)
Congratulations, you've found the hidden text.
Welcome to, also available at and Here's where the remaining listeners of several fine radio stations have retreated, regrouped, and built a replacement strong enough to stand on its own. It builds on the independent legacy of New Jersey's FM106.3, New York's WPIX and WLIR, Oklahoma's 105.3 The Spy, the pre-buyout mindset of KROQ, WBCN and WHFS and of every other alternative station that was destroyed at a moment's notice - not because they weren't making money, but because there was bigger money to be found elsewhere.
We've stood by as truly independent alternative rock radio died. Sure, something called "alternative" took its place, but we know for sure that anything that "tests well" with soccer moms just ain't alternative. (Even if some of us happen to be soccer moms.) So we've taken matters into our own hands.
This really is independent alternative rock radio, visible here at and audible at our web radio station. It has the classic music that fired our passions back in the day - or that we maybe only heard about from our elders - but it's mostly made of the new music that does precisely the same for us now. We're paying attention to scenes all over the world, watching the energy build, and waiting to see what it creates. Wherever it happens, we'll make sure you can hear about it here. We've been slowly building all this since 2001, and now that you've noticed us, we're glad you're here.
Of course, it's only here because you want it to be here, and it can only stay if you help it along - especially by checking out our advertisers (they support us) and by listening (the more that listen, the more visible we are.) Please use the "feedback" link above to let us know whether it works for you, and what you want it to be as the future unfolds. (And if you need help hearing it, let us know that, too.)
