Mix Mornings with your Host Jason every weekday from 6am-10am
I am originally from Auburn Hills, MI. I have an amazing Fiance Ashley and an Awesome son Ayden. I have been in radio for about 15yrs now. I got my start at the very bottom as an intern doing all the fun things like getting coffee for everyone, shining their shoes, giving piggy back rides down 10 flights of stairs cause the talent didn't feel like walking that day and some other great things. Ok Ok! It wasn't that bad but I did start as an intern at 93.1 WDRQ in Detroit and did just about everything I could get my hands on from promotions, overnight DJ, night show co-host, morning show side kick, broadcast engineer and much more. I then moved on to 102.5 WIOG in Saginaw, MI to start on a Night show then moved up to having my own show again on the Afternoon Drive. I have a Huge passion not only for radio but for Music. I love to be on top of all that Brand New music that is out there each and every day. I also DJ (yes spin music) for weddings, school dances ect.....The best part of radio is when I can get out of the studio and meet everyone that I broadcast to everyday.
Favorite T.V./Movies: There are so many! Mythbusters, White colar, Leverage, Gangland (only so I know what sign to throw up in my area so I don't get shot, lol), Greatest American Hero. Movies I absolutely love The Boondock Saints (only the first one cause the second sucked), Snatch, Avatar, Transformers and pretty much anything with Will Ferrell in it.
Sports/Activities: I love to play everything. Basketball (1998 Oakland County slam dunk Champ) is my favorite, Football, Pool (no not swimming) and Drinking.
Tell us one Crazy Story from your Radio Career: Well let me think of a family friendly one quick, lol. When I was an intern in Detroit the night show host there told me and another intern to take some fireworks across the border to canada, light them off so they could see them from the station and come back. We did this with no problem but when we got back he failed to mention that was a Huge crime of smuggling weapons (yes they are considered weapons) across a border. So needless to say if we got caught I don't think I would be in radio today.
Where do you see yourself in 10yrs? Well hopfully I will still be kicking Butt here at the New Mix 107.3.
Last but not least Favorite food to make Quick: Hot dogs but I would rather grill them or anything for that fact.

Here's your Top 5 List for Today
For our spurned Daily Dot readers in the southeast Asian market, here’s ThaiSpy, a spying app that allows “close boyfriends or distant sugar daddies of women... to know they are being honored and appreciated.” What, exactly, does this entail? For $29.99 a month, you can track your partner’s social media activity, address book contacts, Skype calls, and text messages remotely, without having to jailbreak your partner’s phone or install it directly on their device. The software also includes a Thai-to-English translation option for $2 USD per message, as it appears to be targeted at English-speaking businessmen who want to keep an eye on their Thai paramours from overseas.

Is ThaiSpy legal? We’ll let them answer for themselves, on the FAQ section of their website: “The use of monitoring technology is legal in many situations. For example, If it’s your own phone, or the phone of an employee, if they have been advised about company policy or for the guardian of a child or where the user of the device is aware of the application perhaps as way to back up data. ThaiSpy do not offer any advice on this, and you purchase it on the basis that you will not use it for any illegal activity.”
So, basically... no, probably not. But hey, serving hard time for illegal surveillance is a small price to pay for the warm fuzzy feeling of knowing your partner isn’t boinking someone else, amirite?
2) Couple Tracker
Available on the Google Play store, Couple Tracker is like equal opportunity spying. Both partners must agree to allow their digital activity to be monitored, so you guys can check each other’s calls, texts, Facebook activity, and GPS location from afar.

There’s one catch, though: You and your partner only have access to the first 30 characters of each other’s texts, and you can only track your GPS locations within a 30-minute interval. That might seem like a pretty minor caveat, but people who want to cheat tend to figure out a way to do it regardless of the obstacles, so don’t be surprised if you see your wife sends out a message like, “Hey Alex can you grab the McAllister file I think I left it at my desk before... OH GOOD THAT’S MORE THAN 30 CHARACTERS NOW TAKE ME, TAKE ME RAMON YOU ARE COLUMBUS AND I AM AMERICA DISCOVER ME, RAMON, DISCOVER ME!!"
4) Find My Kids—Footprints
“But I don’t have kids,” you say. “Why would I use an app called Find My Kids to track down my wayward lover?” Good question, Imaginary Rhetorical Device Person, but Find My Kids comes equipped with a real-time, automatic tracking and sharing function. So if your partner has it on his/her phone, you can find out where they are at any given time, unlike other apps that merely show you their last known location.

Because the app is targeted at anxious parents who want to make sure their kids are still in school, there’s a geofencing feature that notifies you if your target (ahem, sorry, I meant “loved one”) strays outside of a certain area. Plus, the app has a handy-dandy speeding notification, which is great for those who care about their partners’ vehicular safety way more than they care about respecting their privacy.
With its screenshots of Pebble Beach and Shamu at Sea World, the profile for the live network cam app Camster, which lets you access live feeds from network cameras around the world, makes it seem like it’s not intended for personal surveillance purposes. But if you pay extra to add your own camera, you can watch a live webcam feed of your home, business, or any other location remotely 24/7, so if you’re away on business you can keep an eye out for any visitors or suspicious cars in your driveway.

It all sounds very sexy and Ocean’s Eleven-y, but the app has terrible reviews on the iTunes store. Which, honestly, is probably for the best: If you have enough time on your hands that you’re glued to a webcam 24 hours a day, you’re probably not stable enough to be in a relationship to begin with.
