Alan Cross has been the foremost expert in "Musicology" and a staple on Canadian Radio since 1980.
Alan's obsession with music began at age six when his grandmother gave him 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.
He became a major voice on the Toronto airwaves in 1986 when he joined CFNY which became The Edge and continued there for 15 years.
His radio show The Ongoing History Of New Music debuted in 1993 and has since grown to over 700 one-hour programs making it the longest running music documentary in North America. For more info on Alan, click HERE.
