Chris Allen

A little about me, I was born in Duluth. My Grandpa Irv got me started in radio showing me reel to reel and I used to make shows with my sister for him to listen to. 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 like anything paranormal, got a story? Send it to me.

Watch Chris Allen Play A Joke On The WDIO Morning Show Live On The Air

Every year I like to play a joke on WDIO, I throw pancakes at the weather person. I think the best year, we made a sign that went around the head of Justin Liles and it said hit me, and he even threw back. Last year I didn't do it because I didn't know Dana very well, and I was used to men. I didn't want to get off on the wrong foot with Miss Zimmer. This year, different story.

Back By Popular Demand, Great Grilling Recipe, Bongo Burgers

My cousin Steve deserves all the credit for this one. We were having dinner before going to see a basketball game. He knew I liked Kentucky and wanted to take me to see them play Wake Forest. He explained the recipe to me and I helped him put it together. When I was asked to be on KBJR and cook something on the grill, I thought of these.
