The Jason Solomons Show
Weekly, Wednesday 12-2pm
Interview, Sport, Film, Jazz, Funk, Soul
Known for his film reviews in newspapers, on TV and radio, Jason Solomons now gets to stretch out with his own unique radio show about music, style and culture.
With a range of great guests, Jason will be asking: Seen Anything Good Lately? and discussing what’s going on, what they’re watching, reading and listening to at the moment.
Expect jazz, funk, soul, world and disco – Jason will travel Around the World in 80 Tunes and highlight some of the great music debuts in Fantastic Firsts. There’s a Movie Tune of the Week, a track that’s caught Jason’s ear on the screen in an upcoming film, and we’ll play Jazz Not Jazz, pitting a famous, original tune up against a jazz version of it.
Jason has written columns, interviews and reviews for the Observer and The Mail on Sunday, hosted daily radio shows from The Cannes Film Festival and presented the UK’s first film podcast, The Guardian Film Weekly. He sits in for Robert Elms on BBC Radio London, having joined Robert for 20 years, every week, to present the Thursday film slot on the station. He’s a regular critic on Radio 4’s Front Row and covers the Oscars and the BAFTAs for BBC News, as well as presenting the on-board entertainment on Virgin Atlantic and writing for The New European newspaper.
You may already have heard him on Totally Wired Radio co-presenting Sports Club Classics with Nick Callow, but this time, this show, it’s all him. Jason supports Arsenal, likes whisky, and can’t resist a sausage or a smoked salmon beigel. Welcome to the show.
