Chris Allen

I was born in Duluth, Lived in Nashville. I have also lived in Baton Rouge and the Eastern Shore of Maryland, and traveled around the U.S., so if you want to know my favorite sports team, I've adopted all the teams around where I have lived. 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 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. I have a son named Sam and spend most of my free time doing things with him. 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.

She also has a sense of humor, in this video she showcases that and her singing and performing skills. Funny that Taylor Swift hasn't thrown any shade her way.

KOOL 101.7 Vaults, Home Free Sings Christmas Tunes At The Studio

They came in the studio in support of a concert they were giving, and this was long before they won the sing off on national tv. This group is sort of home grown being formed in Mankato, MN. They have become big national stars, but we realized their talent long before they made it.

Aimee Tischer Talks About Who Made Her Practice Music, Sings Original Song

One of the things I love about the Christmas season is that local artists come in and sing and we can learn a little bit about them. Aimee Tischer was an artist that other artists told me about. An up and coming local artist. The fun part is, she only had to sing a Christmas song, instead she wrote one.

Some Companies Have A Trick To Pitch You A Sale That Might Be Illegal

A new phone campaign called "Political Opinions of America" offers a three-question "poll," and then offers a reward that sounds suspiciously like a classic timeshare sales pitch. After answering political questions, the person is transferred to a live operator from "corporate travel services" who is giving away free cruises thanks to an anonymous donor.

Will the Beatles’ Kids Ever Form Their Own Band [Videos of each]

This is a bad idea. What would they do? If they do original music, Sean Lennon bombed with his music, Dhani Harrison has only worked on his father's music, James McCartney has no track record with music, and Jason Starkey only played in Ringo's band maybe a couple of times and hasn't even made a name for himself, let alone public pictures.
