Allen Thayer is the Assistant Director of the Public Management Program Center for Social Innovation (CSI) of the Stanford Graduate School of Business. He is a graduate of Georgetown University and Columbia University. He also attended university in Indonesia.

He brought a fascinating collection of 45 singles (some of which are extremely rare) and knew the circumstances/ history about each song which makes this show so engaging.

Allen Thayer is called "the Ambassador" in certain circles because he also is a DJ of Brasilian Music.

Here's a link to Allen Thayer's writing in the magazine, Wax Poetics:
