Jason Brown

Operations Director

Jason is a bit of a public radio junkie, and eavesdrops on stations all over North America. His favorite program is RadioLab, and he sometimes ignores his family, severe weather, and basic traffic laws while listening to it. He thinks he reads more than most people, but concedes that’s not saying much. He enjoys working in public radio because he likes discovering new music and having access to what’s happening now. He lives with two dogs, who are relentless hug-beasts. 

Ways to Connect


 KRCU is proud to broadcast Invisibilia, a new program from NPR, about about the unseen forces that shape human behavior - ideas, beliefs, assumptions and thoughts. The one-hour show, which takes its name from the Latin word meaning “all the invisible things,” is produced by NPR’s award-winning Science Desk. Listen to the show locally every Saturday at 1pm and every Tuesday at 7pm starting January 10th on 90.9FM in Cape Girardeau and 88.9FM in Ste. Genevieve and Farmington, or online here at krcu.org.

It's that crazy time of year when we put our Christmas lights up around the alphabet and then receive what music we’re to listen to as we acknowledge the glacial return of the sun. Christmas 2016 was properly lit and thus saved by a surprise mixtape from Chance the Rapper. It’s called Merry Christmas Lil’ Mama and the near cancellation of Christmas of 2017 was saved once again by an expanded version of said mixtape.

Acting Out!

Acting Out! is a regional theater company whose past productions include Joseph And The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat and Romeo And Juliet. Their next performance is of Night Of The Living Dead, an adaptation of the iconic zombie film. In this interview Kasey Cox, the founder and artistic director of Acting Out! reveals that the play is faithful to the film, and utilizes the strengths of the performance space by allowing zombies to shamble throughout the audience.

Snap Judgment

In early February we conducted a survey about KRCU programming. We invited participants through on-air announcements, social media, and directly asked KRCU Circle members by letter. We’re thrilled with the response that we received; it was the most we've ever had to a survey. In it we specifically asked respondents about weekend listening and did receive a lot of useful feedback that in a significant way guides the following changes which will begin on Saturday, March 29th.
