Play favorites with... Jesse B. Rauch, president of Friends of Screen on the Green

Welcome to Play favorites. Every Monday, Click Track asks an interesting Washingtonian about what they’re listening to. This week we spoke with Jesse B. Rauch, president of Friends of Screen on the Green , an organization focused on conserving the Washington outdoor movie summer tradition Screen on the Green.

Rauch likes tunes that are “upbeat and melodic,” spotlighting songs that tell a story. “Listening to music is like watching a movie – except the imagery is in my mind,” he says. “This is what I’d put on if I wanted to chill out during these summer days while we wait for Screen on the Green to begin.”
