Josh Jackson

Josh Jackson is currently the Special Projects Producer at WBGO-Newark, where he is the station's blogger-in-chief and leading caffeine consumer. Josh hosts Live at the Village Vanguard, a monthly concert series from the legendary New York jazz club. He is also the creator and host of Living With Music, a multimedia riff about jazz, discovery and other big ideas.

He started with a full-time gig and volunteer host position at WWOZ in New Orleans, landed a temporary production assistant job at American Routes and attended public radio boot camp at Murray Street Productions in New York. He has produced award-winning documentaries and more than 250 live concert recordings while at WBGO.

He still believes that radio is a legitimate career path. No one has the heart to tell him the truth.

If you've been watching the HBO series Treme with us, welcome back.

If you're new here, welcome in the first place. WBGO's Josh Jackson, a New Orleans native, and I have been watching the music-saturated program set in post-Katrina New Orleans for two years now. After every episode, we try to establish some context for the many musical references and live performances the show features.
