[two] Gervais plays David Brent, a character he played in the BBC comedy series The Office, who is followed by a film crew as he journeys around the country living his dream of being a rock star. [number four] “This film delves far deeper into his personal life than The Office ever did,” Gervais said, “and we really get to peel back the layers of this remarkable, ordinary man.” He’s made it clear that it’s “not an Office movie.” (5)

Night Lights is a weekly one-hour jazz radio program hosted by David Brent Johnson that focuses on jazz from 1945 to 1990, a timeframe that “weirdly parallels Miles Davis on record and the Cold War,” according to Johnson.
Night Lights features many lesser-known talents of post-1945 jazz, including Duke Ellington, John Coltrane, and Nina Simone, as well as subjects such as jazz in movies and television and the music’s link to the civil-rights movement. “Night Lights is a jazz program in sound, plot, and song,” Johnson describes. “I try to weave a cultural narrative around whatever artist or theme I’m highlighting in each episode. It’s a wonderful piece of music with a fascinating background, and I want the program to reflect that.”
David uses smart research and interviews, dramatic narration, and thoughtfully chosen recordings to shed light on jazz artists and little-known corners of jazz history each week. As a result, you’ll have an invaluable educational resource that’s both entertaining and informative. Night Lights is a satisfying introduction to jazz for both curious listeners unfamiliar with jazz and experienced jazz fans, thanks to David’s calming and intelligent voice. I’ve been listening to David for years and he never fails to teach me anything different.” —Marc Myers, founder of JazzWax.com and author of Why Jazz Happened and Anatomy of a Song, a Wall Street Journal contributor.
