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.

This weekend you can watch Thor: Ragnarok or you can watch SITTING, a film directed by Emily Yoshida and staring Mitski, who plays a professional "sitter," who watches as people take a designer drug that allows them to literally see God. Actually you can do both; SITTING is only 7 and-a-half minutes long. Or neither. I can't tell you what to do.

The vocal-pop supergroup The Flat Five have a jaunty and swingin' adaptation of "The Raven." Your feet will be still nevermore.

Sharon Jones sadly died of cancer last year, but while receiving treatment managed to record one last album. Soul of a Woman by Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings is high-energy, bold, and ultimately optimistic.

Morrissey got on Twitter just in time for 280 characters, though it looks like it's just a promotional account. Guy would probably like it.  Anyway, he's got a new album on the way, titled Low in High School
