The Dividing Line Broadcast Network Roster
These are the folks who dedicate their time to bring live or on-demand podcasts (and their archives) to you:
Host of Behind The Lines, aired every other Saturday evening from 7:00pm to 10:00pm Pacific Time. Shawn is the founder and owner of the station. He also looks after the technical side of DLBN operations. Shawn arrived in this world in June of 1976, the Year of the Tail (“A Trick Of The Tail”) and lives in Yaletown, downtown Vancouver, BC.
Alistair has been associated with The Dividing Line for most of its existence. He used to do a show called Momentary Dementia until time constraints caused him to drop that and produce a pre-recorded mini feature called Momentary Dementia News instead, which was played on several DLBN shows. In 2007 Alistair spent a few months traveling around Europe and he fell in love with the place. In early 2008 he left Vancouver, BC for Amsterdam, and more recently he moved to the UK where he now lives and works. He no longer produces Momentary Dementia News but he is still actively involved with station management, particularly in promotions.
Hosted ProgRoots from June 2002 to February 2013, and now host of The Mailbox. He's also the station's music director and looks after the DLBN website. Rene lives in Abbotsford, BC - about an hour east and south of Vancouver. He plays several musical instruments and writes his own songs. He has been collecting records since the mid 1960's and when still in high school he had aspirations to study radio broadcasting and journalism, so the opportunity to host a show on DLBN is fulfilling a lifelong dream.
