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.

Kudos To The Women, For Sticking Together, To Make Women’s Hockey Better. Extra KOOL With Chris Allen

I have to give women and hand today. There has been a fight for women's hockey to get what men's hockey get. If you look at the women on paper, they have won maybe more of a percentage of their championship games. They are one of the world powers. They have been asking for the same treatment as the men, and up until now, it hasn't happened.

Is There A Food So Good You Would Roll Around In It? Shari And Chris Take On The World

Our GM Mary wanted to celebrate birthdays for the month of March and purchased a cake. This cake was so large, and so I cut into it and it was smoothe, like butter, and felt soft to the touch as I put it on my paper plate. I put a spoonful in my mouth and immediately fell in love and wanted to roll around in it, much like an elephant or rhino does in mud.
