Alan Cross’ obsession with music began at age six when his grandmother gave him a transistor radio, spawning an all-consuming fascination with things that came over the airwaves. A few years later, his uncle kick started his record collection with a box of old 7-inch singles. And with that he was hooked. Alan has made a name for himself as a radio broadcaster, Program Director, and Head Curator of ExploreMusic, a truly unique online and on-air feature dedicated to music discovery with Corus Radio. But he is probably best known for The Secret History of Rock and The Ongoing History of New Music (which you can hear on our very own Sonic 102.9 FM). Alan is a vault of musical knowledge, and we can’t wait to dig in to some of his stories at UP+DT 2017!
