Best Online DJ (2008)

David Byrne

Its not like he has a lot of free time, what with his playable-building exhibit, Imelda Marcos theater piece, record label, book of sketches, articles about the music industry, a recent album with Brian Eno, and a fall tour. Still, as a certified music nut, Gothamite David Byrne cant help himself from indulging in yet another projectthough he doesnt DJ offline, hes only too happy to open up his music collection and create his own virtual-radio show via monthly playlists on his website. Since 2005, hes put together themed shows centered on everything from Turkish pop to jazz to what he considers popular music (Britney, Timbaland, and Shelby Lynne alongside Manu Chao and Hot Chip), even including himself in a mix (the October 06 show included his soundtrack work). And dont worry if you miss a show, because he archives them all.
