If you told me when I was a kid that one day I be in radio, I would be ecstatic. If you said I'd be on the station I grew up with I would say no way...but here I am! I grew up in north Amherst but have lived in Hamburg and currently reside in South Buffalo. I'm engaged to the love of my life Ariel, who couldn't care less I'm on the radio...keeps me humble! My mom and dad are a huge reason I kept chasing what I wanted to do, which was always country radio. Other than family and friends, country music is my biggest passion. You'll hear me talk about fun facts and the charts a lot, so be prepared! haha. You can hear me babble during the overnights during the week. Find me on Twitter, Chris Owen (@fiddlesabre).
