You can hear him Wednesdays on DASH radio during his show "Riffing with Jason Stuart."

Here are the #Fave5 songs Jason picked...learn more about the artist below!

MY MAN---Barbra Streisand
The funky spelling of her name was her choice. At 18, she wanted to be unique, but not change her name completely.

 IF I WERE A BOY---Beyonce
In the middle of performing this during her tour, she would break into Alanis Morissette's "You Outta Know"

YOUR SONG_---Elton John
Bernie Taupin, his writing partner, wrote this song in about 30 mins at Elton's parent's kitchen table in North Hills London. The original lyrics have coffee stains on them. Elton, wrote the music for this in about 20 mins...which was pretty typical for Elton when Bernie wrote lyrics.

The week this song hit number 1, he also had written the #2 record on the charts...."Manic Monday" performed by The Bangles.

SKYLARK---Bette Midler
This song is rumored to have inspired a buick of the same name...that was produced from 1953 to 1998.
