Click on my face if you want me to DJ your next event
Mix Mornings with your Host Jason every weekday from 6am-10am
I am originally from Auburn Hills, MI. 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 is Your Top 5 List for Today
At any other time in the year, a bouquet of a dozen roses will set you back anywhere from $10–$50, depending on where you buy them. On Valentine’s Day, you get “surge pricing.” In other words, because roses are in demand, you have to pay way more for them. As Reuters points out, the wholesale cost of roses peaks dramatically around this holiday, and those increases are passed on to customers.
In New York, you can expect to pay between $5–$8 per rose, and if you’re getting them delivered, tack on another $20–$30 for that. It’s not unusual to pay $99 or more for a dozen roses on Valentine’s Day. And for what? They’ll be dead in a few weeks, if not sooner.
Don’t be surprised to see the restaurants in your area charging hefty prices for “romantic dinners.” Zagat states that a dinner for two jumps from $70 on a normal day, to over $146 on Valentine’s Day. The restaurants know all too well that dinner is usually a big part of your planning, and you’ll also have to book weeks in advance if you want any chance of getting a table. Unless, of course, you decide to go to McDonald’s or Taco Bell. Plus, expect the service to be slow. The servers are going to be inundated, and the chefs will never get a break.
Americans buy over 180 million Valentine’s Day cards every year. Seriously, who feels the need to buy someone a card for $6–$7 that contains a cheesy verse? A card that will, in most cases, go in the trash in a week or two. The price of a piece of cardboard is less than a dollar at most craft stores. You can fold that in half, write something that comes from your heart, and glue something fun or sweet on the front. Maybe one of those sweetheart candies?
It’s the usual combo of flowers and chocolates that most men select as gifts on Valentine’s Day. And to mark the occasion, the candy companies make heart-shaped boxes, or big, romantic packages. But it’s the same old candies inside them. You’re just paying extra for the presentation. By the way, those same chocolates will be at least 50% off the day after Valentine’s Day. If you have a cool partner, suggest having Valentine’s Day one day later, and you could save a bundle.
Imagine that you are in a new relationship, and Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. You want to impress your potential boyfriend or girlfriend. You may pull out all the stops, with fine wine, a horse-drawn carriage ride, and perhaps a night in an incredible hotel. Just remember, this is a first impression that could set the standards for the whole relationship. A good friend of mine told me one of the biggest mistakes he ever made was creating a lavish Valentine’s Day getaway for his third date. She was absolutely blown away, but he spent the next few years trying to live up to that. She always compared everything to that night. Save the grand occasion for an important anniversary, not a date with someone you have yet to really know.
This is about as simple as an experiment can get. You just have to make sure it is very, very cold and you use very, very hot water. Simply boil some water, place it in a mug, head outside when the temperature is at -10 or lower, throw the water up into the air and watch what happens!
Anytime the temperature drops below zero, you’ll want to make sure you have some bubble solution ready. Why? Because you can freeze the bubbles! Warm up the solution in the microwave before heading outside and blowing some bubbles. Catch the bubbles on the wand and watch them freeze, then you can throw them, roll them or just crack them.
This one is simple enough, you just want to plan this experiment so you explode you can or bottle of soda in the middle of the night, waking up all of your neighbors. The best thing to do is leave the soda outside for an hour. Once it’s almost completely frozen, throw the soda, or drop it off a ledge to make your pop go pop!
Bananas are about to get a whole lot cooler. Place a ripe banana in the freezing cold outdoors and let it sit for about an hour. Then find something you wish to hammer, perhaps a nail into a piece of wood, and hammer away with your banana. Note that it will still hurt if you accidentally hit your finger instead of the nail.
Find a balloon, and yes for many that will be the most difficult step, blow up the balloon and tie it up outside. The balloon will deflate, the colder it is the faster this will happen. Once you are satisfie
