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.

It's the stuff of legend. Malibu, California, 1976, Neil Young sits down with a guitar and records an album’s worth of material, largely unheard until now. Hitchhiker contains a lot of songs that have since been released with a full band arrangement, but this unearthed audio document offers those songs at their intimate core, and provides insight into Young’s songwriting process.
