“I’ll definitely be coming back to town when we release the new Shrug album,” he continued “We were hoping to have it done and have a release party before I moved. That quickly became apparent it wasn’t going to happen. We’re taking our time and we’ll have the release show at Yellow Cab when it’s warmer so we can have a food truck and open up the garage doors.”
Weidner will continue hosting “The Jewel Case,” which has been airing Thursday evenings on WYSO-FM (91.3) since January 2016.
Motel Beds went on hiatus in 2016, but band members (from left) Darryl Robbins, PJ Paslosky, Tod Weidner, Tommy Cooper and Ian Kaplan all remained busy with other projects. CONTRIBUTED

“I’m so happy I can continue to do the show because it has really become a main factor in my life,” he said. “It’s a labor of love and I never would’ve expected to be doing something like this. I’ve been forcing mixtapes on people my entire life and unwittingly training myself for this. Now, I can force a mixtape on people every week.”
For now, Weidner is focusing on finishing home repairs so he can list his house with a real estate agent.
“It seems like all I’ve been doing for weeks,” he said. “It was a big job, but I’m almost done. I’m looking forward to living in the same place with Patrice again.

“I’ll always treasure making music in this town, but everybody can get comfortable,” Weidner added. “I’m looking forward to the different surroundings and a little different challenge. I’m long overdue for it. I’m a little nervous, a little excited and, lately, a lot exhausted.”
