The Glenn Miller Archive (GMA) of the American Music Research Center is the designated repository for the legacy of Alton Glenn Miller (1904-1944), American popular music icon and Doctor of Humane Letters, Distinguished Alumnus Honorare, University of Colorado Boulder The GMA encompasses many thousands of audio recordings, documents, photographs and memorabilia from the "Big Band Era" of American Popular Music. Founded in 1969 by Curator Emeritus Alan Cass, the GMA is a leading resource for scholars, students, researchers and collectors.
The objective of the GMA is to preserve, enhance and share the history of the Big Band Era. As encouraged by our benefactors, the late Steven Davis Miller (1943-2012) and Jonnie Miller Hoffman, the children of Glenn and Helen Miller, the GMA is a permanent and accessible center of learning for future generations of scholars, students, historians and the public. Alan Cass and Dennis Spragg have worked closely with associates around the world and benefit from important affiliations with universities, government agencies and key partnerships within the entertainment industry. The legacies of many prominent artists and collectors are entrusted to the GMA. In addition to extensive Glenn Miller and Tommy Dorsey catalogs, all of the bandleaders, musicians and singers of the mid-20th Century are represented in the 56 individual GMA Collections.
The GMA presents original radio broadcasts from our collections every Saturday at 6:00 p.m. Mountain Time on KEZW Studio 1430 Denver, an Entercom Communications station. The Star Spangled Radio Hour is streamed worldwide at KEZW Studio 1430
