“J-AIR Radio – The Jewish Voice of Melbourne”

 

J-AIR brings Jewish Culture, News, Music and Comedy to Melbourne on 87.8 FM

J-AIR pays tribute to Dr Allan Zavod

 

The passing away this week of musician and composer, Dr Allan Zavod, is a great loss to the music scene of Melbourne and also to the J-AIR community. Before he fell ill with an inoperable brain tumour last year, Allan hosted his own program, Jazz on Sundays on J-AIR.

A man of immense musical talent he obtained a Doctorate in Music from Melbourne University, having been the first Australian to train at Berklee College of Music in Boston on the personal recommendation of Duke Ellington. He is also one of the first who worked with some of the greatest names in show business that include the likes of Frank Zappam, Robin Williams, the Glenn Miller and Woody Herman Orchestra’s.

J-AIR was excited to have a man of Allan’s great talent on the microphone and his jazz program was eagerly anticipated.

Management and fellow presenters extend their sincere condolences to his wife, Christine and son Zak.
