Fur­ther­more, we’re hap­py to announce our Chair for the 2015 Logan Awards, Jean Pri­or.

Jean ‘Jayekit­ty’ Pri­or has been a DJ on Demen­tia Radio for over sev­en years, host­ess of Radio Free Gal­lifrey under the moniker DJ Phoenix. A past Pen­guiCon music track direc­tor, she has fos­tered new com­edy and non-main­stream musi­cians since her col­le­giate days *mum­ble­mum­ble* years ago. She has also con­tributed inspi­ra­tion to past com­edy char­ity CDs, and as an alum­na of the Penn State Mon­ty Python Soci­ety, can often be found quot­ing the most inap­pro­pri­ate bits (when not at work). She is offi­cially the crazy cat lady of demen­tia fan­dom, con­tribut­ing lyrics to one of Marc Gunn’s cat songs, and a few of her cats have meowed their way onto her show. In her spare time, she enjoys writ­ing sil­ly fan fic­tion, mon­i­tor­ing a twen­ty-year-old list­serv for an obscure vam­pire tv show, online role­play­ing and video games, and fish­ing (a feline favorite). Jean was a Juror for the 2011 Logan Awards, and has been the man­ag­er of the “Table 27” merch table at both MarsCon and FuMPFeST for the past few years. We’re very excit­ed to have her as our Chair for this year’s awards.
