Briton Jon



Monday - Friday  10am - 3pm


Briton Jon was born in a manger during the last century with his mother in attendance and a few odd farm animals.

Briton became interested in the new, at that time, medium of radio because most everyone called him a lazy good for ‘nuthin’.

After pleading and begging, Briton finally began his career at a candle powered radio station where he spoke primarily to cows.

From there, Briton was able to claw himself into some regional markets where the pay was only slightly better but he could date the boss’s wife. Her name? Misty. Hence the song-‘Play Misty For Me’. And like a fine Stradivarius, he did just that. Night after night after night.
But alas, the fun and games ended when Briton reached the ‘big time’ where the air personalities actually wore clothing while on air.

In short, Briton continues to enjoy his career. And if he had to sum up radio in one sentence it would be:   “Everything you’ve heard about radio jocks is true.
