It's the last show of the season, and Séan has no visitors. Nope, not one special guest to hang out in the studio with him. And although he's lonely, there's still a lot of great music to listen to, some solid advice from Old World Grandpa, and an end-of-summer tip to share.

Special guest Thomas D'Arcy of the band Small Sins drops by with mysterious tales of the English Channel, what it's like being a one-man band in the recording studio and taking it to the stage with a bunch of guys you kicked out of your band in the first place. Huh?
