The Music Report
with Jay

New episode drops Tuesday, January 31 at 8 p.m. EST with new music from SUSS, John Cale, The Orb, and more… 

Explore modern and creative sounds with a curious gander into the past on the music report with Jay. 

Jay searches everything audible and explores many genres of music with an accent on post-rock, psych, drone, experimental, and sounds heard less often around the globe. Grab a coffee, it’s freeform radio time!  

New episodes drop at 8 p.m. EST the first & third Tuesday of each month.
