About Me

Jolson42 (the 42 is silent, from when I was in high school, and geeking out over Douglas Adams) is the FNG, as of September 5 2013! He might even remember to edit this when he is no longer the FNG!
He is a fan of games, both of the video and board varieties, puzzles, LEGO and origami. Do not ask him about these things unless you're sure you want lots of opinions.
When he's not being a DJ, he is a high school maths teacher (also a bit of computing). He has heard that there have apparently been a lot of maths teacher DJs. There may be some sort of conspiracy here. fnord
He also often volunteers at The Army Museum of Western Australia. He mostly runs the shop, and fixes computers, and knows very little about military things. Don't tell them that.

Music

Jolson42 has a very broad range of music, occasionally deep too. His semi-regularly updated track list is available here. I'm almost always happy to play requests! If I don't have the music you want to hear, please send it to jolson42@gmail.com!

Contests

As someone who loves puzzles and riddles, I used to have a regular puzzle contest. It has since been discontinued as a weekly event, but additional puzzles may appear in the future!

I also have a secret contest, which runs all the time. Nothing more shall be said of the secret contest, except that winners go into the hall of fame list on the puzzle archive thread, and win a prize.


Regular Shows

I have two regular shows each week.

My Sunday show is Suspense Sunday, and features two kinds of radio dramas. Quiet, Please is a spooky radio drama series from the 1940s, featuring stand-alone stories by Wyllis Cooper and Ernest Chappel. Welcome to Night Vale is a podcast performed in the style of community radio broadcasts from a small desert town. Closer to surreal than spooky, and usually funny.

Wednesdays are my Artist Spotlight, where a significant portion of the show is devoted to a particular artist I've chosen.
