Who? we hadn’t heard his name before but very thankful we have discovered Jason AND that he is one of the music world’s best kept secrets. And brilliant at interviews – well he got a lot of interesting stuff out of Neil thats for sure.
His website is a major find.
The Strange Brew highlights particular themes in rock music from the mid 1960s to the present day. It is one of the The Daily Telegraph’s podcasts you need to be listening to, one of Podcast & Radio’s Best Music Podcasts to Listen to in 2022, in Radio Today’s five of the best classic rock podcasts, preserved in the British Library Sound Archive and one of the Top 30 Rock and Roll Podcasts You Must Follow in 2022.
Jason writes for Record Collector and Shindig magazines

Brilliant stuff.”

There are also separate interviews… you might recognise a few faces
