The Jason Solomons Show
Weekly, Wednesday 12-2pm
Interviews, Sport, Film, TV, Jazz, Funk, Soul, Disco, Dance, World
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 and screen culture.
With a range of great guests, Jason will be asking 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; there’s a Movie Tune of the Week, a track that’s caught Jason’s ear on the screen in an upcoming film or TV show, and there’s Jason’s Jazz Trio, three jazz gems back-to-back.
Jason is joined each week by Fleet Street legend and sports journalist Nick Callow reporting from the Sports Club Classic Clubhouse on the latest sports news and Jason and Nick debate if a certain sports star deserves putting up on the Sports Club wall of icons. And Nick selects a Sports Club Classic track from the Clubhouse jukebox.
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.
But this is his show, it’s all him and his tunes and his guests, just because he wants to hear them and share them with you.
Jason supports Arsenal, likes whisky, can’t resist a sausage and will travel anywhere for a smoked salmon beigel. Welcome to the show.
