Doug Miles

Doug began playing the big band sounds and singers of popular standards on WBAU (90.3FM), Adelphi University's radio station on his show "The Big Band Sound". He also hosted a show on WLFF radio in St. Petersburg, FL which at the time had a Big Band format. He also hosted a nighttime jazz program called "90 Jazz Place" on WUSF (89.7FM) in Tampa.

Seeing the need to keep this music alive on the airwaves in Sarasota/Bradenton, Doug started "The Big Band Files and All That Jazz" on WSRQ 1220 AM which aired from 2004-2008 and currently airs on 96.5FM WSLR.  

Robyn Lynn is a contributor to the Big Band Files and covers the entertainment scene. Her favorite singers are Frank Sinatra and Tony Bennett.
