Alan's had a passion for jazz for for more than thirty years. During this time he's built up a network of contacts which enables him to invite some of the best musicians from the local scene and beyond onto the show.
He's always much preferred radio to television - both because the pictures are better and (his word's not our's!) he has a great face for radio!
Away from the mic, Alan can be seen on Big Centre TV, chatting about all things jazz related around the West Midlands, as well as contributing reviews for SLAP Magazine and Jazz Rag. He's also recently completed an M.A. in Radio and Audio Production at Birmingham City University.
Catch Alan on Monday evenings from 9pm!
