You’ve heard the name B.J.Leiderman many times during the credits at the end of public radio shows. . And if you’re a devoted WPSU listener, you probably hear his music every day.  After a decades-long career as a composer and performer, Leiderman has finally released his first album, titled "BJ." WPSU’s Kristine Allen spoke with him from his home in Asheville, North Carolina.

Kristine Allen is Program Director of WPSU-FM. She also files feature stories for WPSU on the arts, culture, science, and more. When she's not at WPSU, Kris enjoys playing folk fiddle, acting, singing and portrait-sketching. She is also a self-confessed "science geek." Kris started working in public radio in college, at age 17, and says she "just couldn't stop."
