Jason Remington – Creator, Admin, & Editor of QZVX.COM

As Lou Robbins, Jason Remington, joined the staff at KBRD FM in 1987. The Beautiful Music station was just down the hall from Tacoma’s KTAC 850. When Bobby Simon left KTAC, Lou Robbins was chosen to take over the morning show at the Soft Rock station.

When Entercom management chose to scrap the Beautiful Music FM, switching format to Alternative Rock in 1991, Lou Robbins was asked to stay on, as KTAC began simulcasting the new KMTT “Mountain” sound. Under his real name Jason Remington, he continued a few courses at Pierce College and made the nightly trek to Metropolitan Park West, for an all-niter at the new home of KMTT. All while working full-time daily at AT&T.
In 1993, he moved to Phoenix, where he picked up a weekend & fill-in gig at KOOL FM, the heritage Oldies station. The format was based on the personal record collection of programmer Jerry Osborne. Some programs were voice-tracked and syndicated nation-wide, to other stations copying the “KOOL” format and moniker.

FEBRUARY 21, 1998 (AZRADIO.NET)—It was in Phoenix that Jason Remington began blogging. The site was Phoenix Radio Dial (a history of Phoenix Radio). Upon returning to Washington 10 years later, Remington developed SeaTac Media, a site that became PugetSoundMedia, and now QZVX.COM — Yes, the one you are looking at right now. Jason Remington is retired and lives in Olympia, WA. [VICTOR STREDICKE]
