My guest this week is Jason Kramer, who’s been working in radio in Los Angeles since 1992 and has hosted an influential weekly radio show on KCRW for the past 24 years.
Jason has also worked at Fox Sports TV as their full-time music supervisor for 6 years, which then led him to work as a show producer on Fox Sports Radio. He has also worked in various other aspects of music including management, publishing, creative consulting, music photography and continues to work presently as a commercial concept music supervisor for the prestigious music company, Elias Arts.
During the interview we spoke about the work of a music supervisor, how music supervision has changed over the years, dealing with temp tracks, what a sports radio producer does, the future of radio, and much more.
I spoke with Jason via zoom from his office in Los Angeles.
On the intro I’ll take a look at some interesting Shazam numbers, and 10 microphones that haven’t changed in a really long time.
