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

This week we hear new music from Nightmares on Wax. That’s the moniker of DJ and electronic music producer George Evelyn. Nightmares on Wax was among the very first artists to be signed to the massively influential electronic label Warp Records and Shape the Future is his 8th album.

This week on Left of the Dial, KRCU’s independent music program, we hear the latest hook-filled offering from indie rock band Speedy Ortiz, new music from Stephen Malkmus that features Kim Gordon on vocals, and a recently unearthed performance of one of Prince’s most famous songs. 

This week we feature new music from Kamasi Washington. The saxophonist and composer has appeared on albums from Flying Lotus and Kendrick Lamar. His past compositions include a nearly three-hour long piece titled The Epic. His latest album is merely two discs worth of material, and its titled Heaven and Earth, and it explores the duality between looking outward and looking in.
