Where It's At

Dialing It In With Jayn


     Jayn (just Jayn) is an anonymously famous resident of Alameda. You wouldn’t recognize her face, but you might know her voice. You can hear her on Radio Alice, 97.3 FM, in the midday slot, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday through Friday. She commutes daily to San Francisco, and whether you are at home, at work or in your car, she is just a
dial away.
     Jayn and her husband, Higgins (just Higgins), have lived on the Island for the past eight years, and welcomed their young daughter about four years ago. The three of them love music: Jayn is the music director and assistant program director as well as a DJ, and Higgins plays in a band called The Gentlemen. Their daughter is now taking her first dance lessons in Alameda. “It’s a small town. I feel safe,” Jayn says. “I feel like my daughter has all the [amenities] she needs.”
     Here are some of the happening places where Jayn and her posse like to hang out.
