Scott Gregory

Production Director & host of All This Jazz

Scott Gregory started working at Public Radio Tulsa in 2006; he started listening to public radio circa 1980, when he and NPR both marked their tenth birthdays (although only one of them commemorated the occasion with a party at Skate World). As this station's Production Director, Scott mainly serves as the producer and editor of StudioTulsa, the award-winning interview show hosted by Rich Fisher. Scott also hosts and programs All This Jazz, which airs every Saturday night on Public Radio 89.5-1 from 10pm till midnight (with a 7pm rebroadcast on Sunday nights, on Jazz 89.5-2).

Born and raised here in Tulsa, Scott attended Westminster College in Fulton, Missouri, and thereafter Columbia University. He then punched the clock for a good decade or so in the book-publishing industry, working and living in New York City with youthful abandon, wide-eyed wonder, and humdrum contentment, in pretty much that order.

Scott is also the poetry editor at This Land Press. At this writing, his three favorite headlines from The Onion are: "National Funk Congress Deadlocked On Get Up/Get Down Issue" (from 1999), "Wikipedia Celebrates 750 Years Of American Independence" (from 2006), and "Nation Trying, Okay?" (from 2012). He and his wife, Kathy, have three children --- and his father, Bob Gregory, enjoyed a long and legendary career in Tulsa radio and television.

The late Albert Murray, the brilliant African-American novelist, essayist, educator, music historian, and social critic --- he also co-wrote Count Basie's autobiography --- who died last month at the age of 97, once noted, when speaking of the influence of black culture on this country's culture as a whole: "[African Americans] invented the blues; Europeans invented psychoanalysis.
