MY BIOGRAPHY

About Me

“Greatest Jazz of All Time Host and Executive Producer Mike Hudson holds a Ph.D. in Anthropology.  He likes to joke that his background allows him to dig deeper into the origins of things especially things musical.”


Mike is currently hosting a jazz show on Miami's WDNA (Thursdays and Fridays; 7am-11am; streamable at WDNA.org.  Mike’s previous work in broadcasting includes stints at several stations in the Midwest including “The Quiet Storm” at Chicago’s WGCI Radio.  He most recently was a Professor of Social Sciences at Florida Memorial University.

Who Is the Real Mike Hudson?

When he was a kid an uncle returned from military service with a Victor Victrola  and a stack of 78’s.  One was a recording of Buck Clayton, the trumpet player from the Duke Ellington band.  It wasn’t long before Mike was irritating the entire community with bleats and squacks.  Trumpeting didn’t take, but a love of music did, interrupted only by the other stuff of life; marriage; fatherhood; divorce; and a professorship. 


Now his kid is grown and the professorship is on extended hiatus freeing Mike to return to the love of his life; music.  And he’s taking his romance public with the long-awaited syndication of the Greatest Jazz of All Time, a sixty-minute offering of traditional and contemporary jazz presented from the perspective of a regular guy who loves “good music”.


“I’m not a Jazz Snob,” Mike is quick to say.  “We’re not going to get too bogged down into musical theory on Greatest Jazz.  It’s more for people like me who have a love of good music and some interest in the people behind the notes.  So called Jazz Elitist may have to look elsewhere.”.
