Allen Scott

Co-Host of "Saturday Morning Jazz"

“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 currently works in 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. Allen 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/KVJZ.

Saturday Morning Jazz

Music that may not come from the mainstream: That's what you'll hear Saturday morning. There's plenty of newer jazz, a dash of Latin spice thrown in for flavor, and some hot blues to warm up your mid-morning. And, a little conversation and information is mixed in to round things out.
