Jon Solomon (born April 19, 1973) has been the host of "Jon Solomon's Annual 25-Hour Holiday Radio Show" at WPRB in Princeton, New Jersey, since 1988, when he was fifteen years old.[1]

Solomon's weekly three-hour radio program broadcasts on Wednesdays on WPRB. Each week's show features a live performance, and more than 200 bands have appeared on this show since 2001. Philebrity called Solomon "the closest thing the Philly indie rock scene has to a John Peel".[2]

Solomon lives in the Lawrenceville section of Lawrence Township, Mercer County, New Jersey.[3]

One of Solomon's record labels, My Pal God Records, put out recordings by A Minor Forest, Bitter Bitter Weeks, Del Rey, The Embarrassment, Eyeball Skeleton, Ex Models, The French Kicks, Paul Newman, Silkworm, TW Walsh, Joel R.L. Phelps, Dianogah, and Emperor Penguin.[4] Comedy Minus One is Solomon's current record label which has released albums by Bottomless Pit, The Karl Hendricks Trio, Obits, Oxford Collapse, Silkworm, SAVAK and Tre Orsi.[5]

Other activities[edit]

Solomon hosted the Philadelphia City Paper podcast "Local Support", a program that featured the music of artists from the Delaware Valley, and was the founding editor of the Princeton Basketball News, a web site about the Princeton Tigers men's basketball team.[6]
