Air Traffic Controller, Vinyl Skyway
Air Traffic Controller
Serving in the US Navy as a real-life air traffic controller, singer/songwriter Dave Munro sent home 4-track demo tapes of songs written during his deployment. With his enlistment up, Munro returned to hometown Boston and discovered an impressive number of fans, prompting the genesis of the aptly-named rock band Air Traffic Controller. Accolades and award nominations soon followed; as did airplay on tastemaker radio stations such as WFNX and WERS, and coverage in publications such as Business Week, Boston Herald, Performer Magazine, Boston Globe and the Boston Phoenix.
A creation of singer/songwriters Michael Hayes and Andy Santospago, the Vinyl Skyway got its first break in 2004 when KCRW's Morning Becomes Eclectic played "Elvis Costello" and "Rich Blood". In 2007, the Vinyl Skyway released a critically acclaimed sophomore album entitled "From Telegraph Hill". It was described by the Boston Globe as "a headphone record of exquisitely crafted pop" and hailed as one of the year's best.
