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.

City Of Duluth To Add New Mobile Payment To Parking

I have had to pay to park at one of those posts and sometimes it's hard to find where to pay, and do you bring quarters or can you pay with a card. I'm glad to hear the City of Duluth. I spend 15 minutes on the phone one day because the sign said to download the app, and I couldn't get it to show Duluth.

If You’re Not Looking, Your Dog Is Ready To Steal Your Food, Study Shows

Devoted dog owners will often swear that their pet somehow understands them. My Grandma June would say, look, just by the way she tilts her head, I know she understands me. We would all roll our eyes. Man's best friend turns to the dark side when they know we are looking away or we are gone.

Women’s Fashion, Odd Fashion Jobs, And Rating Bras, Shari And Chris Take On The World

I see this fashion all the time in the Twin Ports, especially at concerts. Women wearing shirts with the shoulders cut out. Sometimes they have a plunging neckline, sometimes they are button up, but I see them everywhere on women. I asked a woman I met at a radio party what it was, and she said cold shoulder. I thought she was giving me one.

Manners Are Disappearing, Americans Say People Are Less Polite, Don’t Know Etiquette

Manners are declining. I hear this all the time from the older generation. I know certain things I see younger drivers not know for driving etiquette. I don't want to sound like it's only the younger generation.  How do Americans as a whole feel? The same way, but a bit more removed on how to deal with it.

Medical Marijuana Has Been Shown To Cure Diarrhea; In A Related Story More Musicians Getting Diarrhea

That second part might not be true, but I found a story that talks about actual research. (yeah, right, I know a friend that does constant research.) Does Marijuana work on curing diarrhea? According to research, it might help your body help itself. Is that why we never see Snoop Dogg or Willie Nelson do a Pepto-Bismol commercial?
