“Philosophy is like classical music…”

Alicia Jacobs in the studio at WUNH

Philosophy major Alicia Jacobs is a DJ at WUNH. She’s also a singer and has performed the National Anthem for the New Hampshire Fisher Cats, Manchester Monarchs, Portland Sea Dogs, and UNH.

What’s the connection between music and philosophy? “For me,” Jacobs said, “The connection is between understanding and being understood.”

Jacobs explains that the classical music she listened to with her dad growing up was reflective. “Philosophy is like classical music. I’m not trying to be understood; I’m trying to understand. Performing the national anthem, popular music and working at WUNH are about being understood.”
