Jason Honea talks w/Derek Holzer and Anklepants.

Jason Honea, our man of stories that rise from a beautiful chaos and memories that drown in a wonderful life, is back with two travelling guests. They will meet at a wine bar, because a friend works there and will serve free wine. Hooray. One of the guests has a beard, but not for Christ or hipster sake, but just because his granddad had a beard too. The other guest wears a mask. So what? Both have been to a lot of countries and have seen a lot of things….

Interview – Jason Honea talks with Jared Hasselhoff and Curtis

On his live show, Brave Ear Radio, Jason Honea talked with Jared Hasselhoff and Curtis.

Brave Ear show on Soviet and Russian Underground – Guests Olga Nosova, Constantine Usenko and Alexei Borisov

If you read the following text right to the very end, you get an idea of the periods Alexei Borisov leaped through in this episode of Brave Ear Radio, hosted by Jason Honea. You get a lot of information and stories about the soviet years. Alexei, an experienced radio host himself, sometimes takes over, which is all the more pleasant because he has a very convincing radio presence. Constantine Usenko, a russian from St.Petersburg who grew up in Poland completes some of the stories, because they were topics in his…

Brave Ear Radio – Interview with Last Dominion Lost (Julian Percy, John Murphy, Jon Evans)

Jason Honea talks with three members of the industrial ensemble Last Dominion Lost. Julian Davis Percy, John Murphy and Jon Evans are from Australia, which is very far away from Europe. All three of them live in Berlin. I have no idea what Jason will ask or talk about: the sinister legacy of Nazi German that spooks around in the peripheria of the collective subconscious, Australian wild life or the hipsterisation of Berlin underground. You will for sure hear a lot of the musique noir by Last Dominion Lost. Here’s…

Brave Ear Radio- Jason Honea talks with Andrea Schroeder and Ken Shakin

Jason Honea’s show has the magic and mystery of chance encounters while travelling the USA from coast to coast. The pearls shining on a collar, sleepless nights, the sudden sense of liberty when waking up in the middle of nowhere, useless love affairs. The guests offer myriad views on life on the edge of existence, and might drag us right to the very center of it. Andrea Schroeder, – read the hosanna’s here was interviewed just before her widely acclaimed album ‘Where the Wild Oceans End’ got published. She talks…
