“Music washes away the dust of everyday life.” Art Blakey. This quote says it all for Allen Scott. Hosting a jazz music show at KUVO is an escape for him from everyday life; this is truly his “oasis in the city.” Allen is currently retired from the hospitality industry as a hotel management director but his professional career spans decades as a broadcaster in both radio and television. He has worked for two major networks and media outlets in Houston, Los Angeles, Philadelphia and Washington D.C. He moved to Colorado in 1985 and found love and happiness through his family and a new found love for public broadcasting. He has devoted his life over multiple years on-air as a professional and volunteer in public radio in Aspen, Carbondale, Colorado Springs and now more than a half dozen years at KUVO. He resides in Colorado Springs but is passionately dedicated to the commute which provides him the honor and privilege of sharing jazz music with the listener/members of KUVO Jazz.
Allen is on the air on alternate Saturdays from 2pm to 4pm on “Jazz with Allen Scott.”
