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

Behold, the new Alice Glass video. 

Left of the Dial airs Friday nights from 9-11 and Saturdays from noon-2 on KRCU. 

This week we've got new music from The Jayhawks. Singer/songwriter Gary Louris over the years has collaborated as a songwriter with a number of high profile musicians like Jacob Dylan and The Dixie Chicks. Back Roads and Abandoned Motels features his band’s take on some of those songs. Plus new music from Mitski, Saintseneca and more. 

Cigarettes After Sex have a new song, "Crush," recorded at the same time they recorded their outstanding self-titled album released last year, and it's so good that it could have been the standout track on it. There's no official video at this time but its moody atmospheric sound lends itself well to visuals, as demonstrated by a couple of well-produced fan edits. 

This week on Left of the Dial, KRCU’s independent music program, we hear from Khruangbin, a Houston trio who are influenced by the sounds of ‘60’s-era Thai funk music. Plus new music from Neko Case, and Kamasi Washington composes a jazz tune about what the video game Street Fighter means to him.
