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. Scott also hosts and programs All This Jazz, which airs every Saturday night on Public Radio 89.5-1 from 9pm till midnight (with a 7pm rebroadcast on Sunday nights, on Jazz 89.5-2). He's also the co-creator of the popular Museum Confidential podcast, which he and Jeff Martin (of Philbrook Museum of Art) began in 2017.

Born and raised 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 serves on the boards of Chamber Music Tulsa and Tulsa Literary Coalition / Magic City Books, and he's on the advisory boards for Sistema Tulsa and Tulsa Symphony Orchestra. He has has written over the years for This Land Press, Boston Review, and other publications. At last check, his three favorite headlines from The Onion were: "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.

Our debut epiosde! Aired on February 20 and 21, 2020.

One name keeps popping up as one of the most important younger voices on the future of museums. That name is Colleen Dilenschneider. Through short videos, presentations, and data driven articles at her website, Colleen consistently boils down industry studies and presents them in a digestible, reliably optimistic way. Think of a museum-focused Malcolm Gladwell...who's a giddy millennial. On this episode of MC, we chat with Colleen about that future she’s always talking about.
