Greg Versen

Greg Versen, Professor Emeritus of JMU's BSW program, is an award-winning photographer, and has been active in the art for 50 years.

Also known to many locals as "Professor Blues", in 1985 Versen began hosting Blues Valley on JMU’s PBS-affiliate WMRA. This program introduced listeners world-wide to the rich landscape of the Blues, in addition to giving Versen recognition as the area's Blues expert.
