The Night Shift with Craig Allen

The Night Shift with Craig Allen

Born and raised in New Jersey, I have been entertaining and informing the New Jersey/New York/Philadelphia region for years…and I look forward to bringing my passion for the music, and great radio, to you!

I have known since I saw the new radio station on a remote when I was 9 years old, that I was going to be the guy on the radio. I’ve been ‘living the dream’ since earning my communications degree at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in the mid 80’s.

In my spare time,  I listen to music (I have a large CD and vinyl record library). I walk (a good time to plan a radio show), and I work out at the gym. I enjoy books with cool characters and plot lines (Stephen King, for example). And, one of these days, I’ll get back to turning my dirt bike into an on-road  motorcycle.
