Alan Cross, “My obsession with music began at age six when my grand­mother gave me a transistor radio—an old Lloyds—which spawned an all-consuming fascination with things that came over airwaves.  A few years later, my uncle—who moonlighted by servicing jukeboxes—kick-started my record collection by dumping a box of old 7-inch singles on me one Sunday afternoon.  I was hooked.”

Alan Cross is a Canadian radio broadcaster and a writer on music, best known nationally and internationally as host of the syndicated radio series The Ongoing History of New Music, The Secret History of Rock, and ExploreMusic.
