Chris Allen

I was born in Duluth, grew up here, and then moved away to Nashville. I have lived in many towns and states, so I don't have a real favorite sports team. I have many favorite sports teams. I have been working in radio since 1995. I held many odd jobs before I finally got in to radio. I also like to write, produce, and listen to music. I have had a number one song in 3 countries, just not America. I also enjoy movies, volleyball, and fashion (yes, fashion!). I have a younger brother and sister, and they live in Phoenix with my Mom and Dad. My sister has two kids, and my brother is married with dogs. Thank you for listening to me! Without you I wouldn't have a job. I enjoy the paranormal and can share many stories with you, but I would like to hear your story, so email me.
