Scotland-born upstate New Yorker. A rock DJ in the 60s, he became a Christian (and now an ordained minister, IIRC), one of the early "Jesus Rock" jocks. Longtime employee of the Christian Broadcasting Network; don't hold it against him - he'll gladly confound your stereotypes on occasion. His old CBN talk show had the occasional guest like Jim Wallis, or xian musicians who didn't totally forsake "the devil's music", like Liberty DeVito from Billy Joel's band and Dez Deckerson from Prince's old band; his poem What I Didn't Learn in Church Last Sunday (and wish I had) takes pokes at the orthodoxies of Christianityism. His wife Nedra is the cousin of Ronnie Bennett Spector - they sang in The Ronettes, of "Be My Baby" fame.

Scott Ross was also a very talented harpsicord player, famous in France for his renditions of Bach. I got to know him through his complete recordings of Domenico Scarlatti's harpsichord sonatas, over 550 of them, broadcast by BRT 3, 2 or 3 at a time, each Sunday at 13:00.
