Robert "Bob" Parlocha (born in 1938) is an American jazz expert
who, for many years, is best known as a radio host and programmer.
He is also a professional saxophone player. Bob Parlocha was born
in Vallejo, California in 1938, to a Filipino father and a
half-black, half-Filipino mother. His mother was a fan of big band
music (especially Count Basie and Duke Ellington), and introduced
him to jazz at an early age. He grew up listening to former KJAZ
owner Pat Henry (broadcasting at that time on KROW in San
Francisco); and to Jerry Dean, who hosted a weekly KJAZ show from
Vallejo. Contributing his voice as an announcer for road bands
while still in his teens, Bob played tenor and soprano saxophones,
as well as flute for his high school band. He graduated from
Vallejo High School in 1956.
