Chris Allen

A little about me, I was born in Duluth. My Grandpa Irv got me started in recording, showing me reel to reel and other tricks of the trade. That's when the bug hit me. I wanted to talk on the radio. He used to play old broadcasts of Philadelphia Radio for me to listen to. I started in radio in 1996 doing overnights and eventually moved up to mornings. I enjoy music, both listening and writing it. My Favorite artists are Van Halen, Michael W. Smith, Def Leppard, Evanescense, Garth Brooks, Gary Allan, Sara Evans, Kellie Pickler, The Beatles.....ok, I could go on and on here, basically, I like good music no matter what it is. My favorite movies are, ‘The Crow’, ‘Forrest Gump’, ‘Stealing Home’, and ‘Nightmare Before Christmas’. My favorite color is Black; my fav food is mac and cheese with turkey burger in it. I am married, with two boys JJ (10) and Sam (4)

Thin, Cheap, Toilet Paper, What Were They Thinking, Chris Allen Rant

I was at a friend's house the other night and I had to ....eh hum, do my business, if you know what I mean. So I sat and read the latest copy of Cosmo and found out I am a nice guy and know my accessories well. I also liked a dress that Anne Hathaway picked out, but that's beside the point.

KISS May Be Right, Their Fans May Be Wrong, Chris Allen Changes His Mind

I have come to a decision, I owe KISS an apology. The story that is floating around is KISS won't play the Rock N Roll Hall of fame the night of their induction because they can't decide who should play. That made me angry. KISS has maintained that they wanted their new guys and some of the older ones to play and be inducted.
