Moeller Leaving Daytrotter

The founder of Daytrotter is leaving the independent music website that's based in Davenport. Wednesday afternoon the Quad City Times reported Sean Moeller resigned. 

He founded the site about ten years ago in downtown Rock Island, and just recently moved across the river to downtown Davenport. 

The Times also reports Moeller will retain a minority share in the company, but stopped being involved in its operations two weeks ago. 

It also says Benjamin Crabb, who formerly worked at Ragged Records, is now the booking manager for Daytrotter. 

A native of Detroit, Herb Trix began his radio career as a country-western disc jockey in Roswell, New Mexico (“KRSY, your superkicker in the Pecos Valley”), in 1978. After a stint at an oldies station in Topeka, Kansas (imagine getting paid to play “Louie Louie” and “Great Balls of Fire”), he wormed his way into news, first in Topeka, and then in Freeport Illinois.
