Tyler Alderson / Jazz Host
Tyler Alderson shows
Hailing from the wilds of Harvard, Massachusetts, Tyler grew up listening to his grandfather’s old Benny Goodman and Harry Belafonte records. His first foray into radio came at Carnegie Mellon University as a DJ and play-by-play sportscaster for the Carnegie Mellon Tartans (a team as formidable as their namesake fabric pattern). He ended up falling in love with the medium and incorporated a radio documentary into his master’s dissertation on traditional singing in Ireland. When not behind the microphone he can be found happily picking away on the banjo, to the chagrin of all within earshot.
