WTJX DJs of the Week: Jim Clarke and Andrew Kovalenko (Jim and Andrew in the Morning)

Jim and Andrew’s Saturday morning radio show has become impressively popular. Why is this?
Perhaps it is because they read Jaden Smith tweets on air.
Perhaps it is because they play pirate songs (no joke).
Perhaps it is because they spread the false hope that they will play your requests.
Perhaps it is because their success is inspirational to all nerds everywhere.

Jim and Andrew

If you have not heard them, it’s likely that your friends have. If neither is true, it’s possible that you are just not hip and need to remedy that by tuning in.

Tossing tunes at you wholesale, the Costco of radio shows.
Saturday mornings, 10 AM – 12 PM

Jim Clarke enjoys climbing trees, talking about feelings, and that tingly feeling you get in your feet when you miss a step or watch someone jump off something really high. He is a third-year physics major from Nashville, and tries in vain to keep math from obfuscating his ability to interact with people. Listen to him and Andrew forget what to say and take all requests (ALL OF THEM) from10 – 12 PM on Saturday morning, and check out his long-form productions for Altered Frequency.

Having been born of goodly parents, Andrew was schooled in the ways of smooth jazz at a young age.  Over time, his musical horizons broadened to a point in which the border between music and life itself disappeared into the Bermuda Triangle.  He spends his free time chopping firewood, brewing coffee in the most inconvenient and time-consuming ways possible, and managing his ego.  He is still searching for the perfect pancake.
