WUMB Music Mix A mix of contemporary and traditional folk, roots, acoustic, and Americana music; with live interviews, news, and informational features.
"I grew up in a house that was more often than not filled with music, even though no one in my immediate family can play an instrument very well. And by "very well", I really mean "at all". I grew up with the sounds of Harry Chapin, Neil Young, Peter Paul & Mary, The Beatles, James Taylor, and Gordon Lightfoot percolating through my parents stereo. I gravitated towards radio when I was in college (even though it was against the will of my college advisor) because I always loved the notion of turning someone on to an artist or a song that maybe they hadn't heard before."
Before coming to WUMB a few years ago, Jay worked in radio for over ten years, including longtime stints at his college radio station, and over eight years at WZLX Boston.
When not on the air, Jay can be seen spending time with his better half (cliche but true) Karen, and keeping incredibly fit by chasing his baby daughter Ellie all over the place!
