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

Stones Throw

In 2006 J Dilla released Donuts, a staple of underground hip hop and a crowning achievement of west coast left-field label Stones Throw. This week it’s been reissued as a box set of eight 7-inch 45’s, in other words it’s literally a box of donuts. 

Karate Body Records

The latest EP by Louisville-based band Wax Fang is titled “Mirror, Mirror” and singer/guitarist Scott Carney says having just read a collection of short stories by the Argentine magical realist author Jorge Luis Borges influenced the themes explored on it.

“He was not a fan of mirrors,” Carney said. “He was afraid of them or something, because they multiplied people.”

Frank Ocean's Channel Orange was consistently praised as one of the top R&B albums of 2012.
Frank Ocean

A big 1990’s music renaissance was inevitable, but if you are patiently awaiting the return of grunge rock and Doc Martens, you might have to wait another year or so.
