Biography

Glenn A. Baker occupies a unique niche in Australian entertainment and public life, or as Barry Humphries sees it, "Mr Baker is a mercurial man". Music expert, intrepid traveller, radio and television presenter, best selling author and effusive enthusiast; his voice and face have become extremely familiar over the past twenty five years. His capacity to elucidate upon his favourite topics, with accuracy and humour, has been likened to "talking under wet cement".

His unique knowledge, similar to that of a Bill Collins or Don Burke, and his range of experience have given him a rare level of credibility in a notoriously ephemeral area. "He's put pop into perestroika and he syncopates the soul" says Ray Martin. David Fricke, Music Editor of Rolling Stone (U.S.) once declared "Glenn A. Baker is not just Australia's top pop scholar, he is a world-class rock journalist who writes with the enthusiasm of a true fan." Oscar-winning lyricist Tim Rice dubbed him "The Allan Border of popular music history and analysis". Or in the words of rocker Jimmy Barnes: "Glenn is a madman who is totally dedicated to music."

As a specialist public speaker and compere/host/presenter, Glenn has undertaken assignments for such organisations as Toyota Australia, Hewlett-Packard, IBM, Inter-Continental Hotels, Fender Australia, Virgin Records, Festival Mushroom Records, Malaysia Airlines, Finnish Tourist Board, Royal Caribbean Cruises, NRMA Ltd., SIDA Inc., Parkinson's NSW Inc, David Jones, the National Library of Australia, National Trust, Powerhouse Museum, Ted Noffs Foundation and Air New Zealand. He has appeared on panels at the Australian Book Fair and anchored seminars for the Australian Society of Travel Writers and other travel bodies.
