Arch City Radio Hour: Dennis Owsley And St. Louis Jazz History

Dennis Owsley and St. Louis Jazz History

Dennis Owsley's love and passion for Jazz has been unabated for decades.  He's been the host of "Jazz Unlimted" on St. Louis Public Radio for over 30 years now.  He sits down with Nick Garcia to talk about the history of Jazz in St. Louis, Miles Davis, and Dennis' Jazz Concert photography, among other subjects.  

Mike Schrand began his radio career at St. Louis Public Radio as a live recording intern from 1986 to 1988. From 1988 to 1992, he acted as Jazz ‘Till Dawn producer and host and weekend announcer, occasional engineer for Jazzstream With Walter Parker and Jazz Unlimited and Morning Edition engineer and producer. From 1992 to 1995, Schrand worked in the corporate world, but returned as a weekend announcer in 1995. In 1996, Schrand was hired as St. Louis Public Radio Traffic Director and was promoted to Assistant Program Director in 1998 and Program Director in 2001. In his spare time he writes, sings, and plays bass in the local roots quartet Salt Of The Earth, and enjoys down time with his family in St. Louis City.
