Born and raised in Chicago, Jason Addams has spent years looking for the elusive “perfect radio moment.” “I know people say radio is different today but that’s not true.  People have always wanted the best songs and fun entertainers who talk about what they are interested in.  If you can make them laugh, think or feel at the same time, you win.” After 5 years studying radio and television at Southern Illinois University, Jason began his radio trek as a morning dj, programmer, janitor, van driver, mascot, coffee schlepper and occasional host and joke teller.  Jason has 3 daughters and an ex-wife so he knows how to take orders and be wrong.  He loves guacamole, writing and has a passion for Crossfit as well as a supporter of adoption services, veteran’s affairs and pet charities.
