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.
