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)
