Gloria Alexander Bio
The sound of music permeates my life.
My favorite thing is learning new artist, and their music. All day long from morning to night I am listening to music. It’s a physical process whereas some people would go nuts, it’s my passion.
I was raised in a family of music lovers, from my father to my siblings, everybody loved music of some kind. Born in Little Rock, Arkansas and raised in Dallas, Texas.
My father played Tenor Saxophone, and I played B-Flat Clarinet, Bass Clarinet, and Alto Saxophone, also, I was a Drum Majorette in middle school and played in the Jazz Band in High School, graduated from high school in 1977.
Jazz has been and will always be my first love. I look forward to creating new shows every week and my music mixture is directly related to my passion and love of music from different genre of jazz from New Urban Jazz, Crossover Jazz, Latin, and Smooth Jazz just to name a few.
My deepest passion is the love for the sound of instruments, first the piano, and secondly the guitar. When I was 17 years old my dream was to become a radio personality, and my second dream was to become a Flight Attendant. At the age of 19 I was hired by a major airline as a Flight Attendant, retired after 25 years.
My second dream was to become a Radio Personality, I did that late in life, never too late for me. I am a former Radio Personality for KTSU 90.9 my show was Jazz Gems Monday thru Thursdays from 2:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.
I enrolled in college after retirement, attended Texas Southern University, School of Communication, and graduated May 14, 2016 with an BA in Journalism/Broadcasting, presently enrolled in Graduate School graduating December 2018 with a degree in Professional Digital Media.
My dream came true 40 years later, just when it was supposed too!
Most importantly, I love for Jazz music. My passion Jazz gave me the vision to become a promoter, and to bring my jazz show on my own radio to the air waves.
