About Greg Allen

With nearly 20 years of experience in jazz radio in markets such as Cleveland, Denver and national syndication, Greg Allen brings unparalleled passion for and deep knowledge of jazz music. His personal interest in jazz started in the mid 80s, coinciding with the radio format’s national emergence as ‘The Wave’.

Greg went on to host a nightly program on Marconi Award-winning WNWV-FM, Cleveland and eventually added Music Director duties which afforded him regular contact with record labels, promoters and artists.
  
In the late 90s, Greg came to Jones Radio Networks, working in various roles including Music Director for the nationally distributed Smooth Jazz format.  Through involvement with industry events such as the network’s sponsorship of the JRN Smooth Jazz Summit, a broadcast industry showcase of top contemporary jazz artists, Greg gained additional exposure to artist management and agents.  Additionally, Greg worked in jazz radio at both KHIH-FM and KKHI-FM, Denver and is currently associated with the programming of 103.7, The Oasis in Albuquerque.
