  • After 21 years on weekly shows (no days off!), Tim Sweeney dropped a bomb on his listeners Tuesday night, informing us he'll be wrapping up his storied run on WNYU Radio. There's so much to be said about Beats In Space, a show whose archive of guest mixes serves as a week-by-week history of the last two decades of dance music. But Sweeney, like another legendary NYC DJ, Larry Levan, let his records do the talking. Easing into two-and-a-half hours of leftfield disco, house and Italo tracks epitomizing the classic BiS sound, Sweeney said, "there's a message in the music." Thanks Tim.
