Max Jacobs

Host & Producer, Liner Notes

Max Jacobs hosts and produces Liner Notes, the weekly music and interview program that explores and celebrates the inspirations behind some of today's most dynamic musicians.


Max started working at KALW in 2010, where on his first day in the newsroom he was handed a recorder and told to go record sad sea lions (an experience that was perhaps telling of what working in public radio and particularly for KALW might hold going forward). He covered music and food and agriculture for Crosscurrents, helping create the interview series Bay Area Beats as well as the original radio documentary We’re All Giants.


In addition to radio, he has also written for various online publications such as The Bold Italicand the music site IndieShuffle.
