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.

Jaye Jayle is the side-project of Even Patterson, the lead singer of Louisville pummelers Young Widows. Jaye Jayle is a chance for Patterson to explore the bleak themes of underground heavy metal with the gritty sounds of Americana. His newest music appears on a split EP alongside label-mate Emma Ruth Rundle titled The Time Between Us

There's this promo CD, from Air France, titled In The Air, and I guess Air France is just a really hip airline as it's one of the most well-crafted mixtapes I've ever heard. It's an unbelievably chill mix of downtempo electronic music, wistful acoustic tunes, and songs that reside happily within both of those spots.

Naming your electronic group The Delia Derbyshire Appreciation Society (DDAS) is a bit like naming your thrash-metal band "Metallica Rules," but it does let listeners know what to expect from you. DDAS is the duo of Garry Hughes and Harvey Jones, two electronic music composers who bonded quickly with one another over their shared affection for Derbyshire, herself a composer and a member of the BBC's Radiophonic Workshop during the 1960's. DDAS' debut album plays like a pristine snapshot of '70s-era electronic music, capturing the playfulness and experimentation of the era.
