Having worked in music more than half his life, Jay Millar, the General Manager of Sundazed Music and Modern Harmonic, has a wide range of musical taste that spans all genres, but heavily leans into fringe with a deep passion for oddities, obscurities, and under-produced pop. Never content to sit back and let music come to him, he seeks out newness, whether it’s a new release or just something he’s newly discovered.
On The Plural of Music, Jay shares his passion with you. His goal is to bring you music you’ve hopefully never heard, yet sounds familiar and catches you on the first listen. With heavy, equal slants towards modern independent (or self released) indie pop to lesser heard treasures from the 60s, you never know what you’ll get on Tuesday nights from 7 to 9 Eastern, but you can bet it’s gonna be a little strange, loaded with hooks, and admittedly probably not for everyone.
Direct from his enormous record and reel collection, one evening you may hear an album walking you through the full glossary of CB Radio jargon, or maybe you’ll hear an hour straight of French language covers of familiar songs, but odds are you’re going to have fun and it’ll probably be a little weird. It’s pretty much guaranteed that at some point you’ll hear his custom mashups taking vocals from instructional films, vocabulary, or his vast collection of sex ed records cued up perfectly over a classic instrumental LPs creating a fully new experience. If the Velvet Underground, Ramones, and Parquet Courts are about as mainstream as you’d like to go, this show is likely for you… although he’ll try to pitch you on the careers of Mel Tormé or Tom Jones from time to time, too. Discover something new, or new to you.
