Chris Jackson

My name is Chris Jackson. I come from a very nice trailer park in the mid west. Seriously, I had the luxury of a double wide! I spent most of my adolescence lighting fire crackers, wearing flannel shirts, and listening to loud screaming punk rock and alternative music. After failing at high school, I attempted a career in custodial arts, but it just wasn’t the right fit for me. I eventually talked myself into putting down the mop and picking up a microphone, in which I discovered my talent of speaking inappropriately to entertain the masses.  Which brought me to Las Vegas, where I’ve managed to talk my way into a fine radio career, and I’ve only offended a small percentage of the population. I love tacos, Nine Inch Nails, and bourbon.
