Dave Munro was an air traffic controller in the Navy. The distance from everyone he knew and the loneliness inspired him to become a songwriter.

From that experience, Munro started the Boston-based band, Air Traffic Controller. Their newest album is "Nordo."

Air Traffic Controller will be performing Sunday at 7 p.m. at The Bull Run Restaurant in Shirley. Tickets are $15.

Guests:

  • Dave Munro, singer/songwriter, lead vocals, guitar
  • Steve Scott, mandolin
  • Alison Shipton, violin

This segment aired on September 20, 2012.
