Barry Allen

Born and raised in the Twin Cities, working around the Midwest in radio for over 25 years. In the summer you’ll likely find me riding motorcycle with my wife Ali. In the winter you won’t see me unless you sneak into my cave, I hate the cold. What I DO enjoy is warm weather, my family (including our labs), riding motorcycle, firing up the grill, and thanking our military service members for our freedom. I love music, especially anything from the 80s!

Hi! Thanks for stopping by 96.7 The River! I hope you're as happy to be here as I am! After being on the air since the age of 18, I decided to hang up my headphones awhile back. Well.....never say never, because here we are again! And I'm very excited about working with a group of radio veterans who love this music like I do! After living in Colorado for awhile, and on the east coast for about 20 years, I made my way back home to Minnesota several years ago

I'm just a regular Minnesota guy that grew up on the north-side of the Cities (Fridley), spent some quality time at the U of M, chill on the weekends at the family cabin near Duluth, bleed Vikings purple, and miss the North Stars. I have a short attention span; and enjoy Eric Church, Johnny Cash, Zac Brown, Kid Rock, Pink Floyd, 80s hair bands, coffee, beer, scotch, and long sunset walks on the beach. (One of those isn't true.) I'm a two-time cancer survivor now (Colorectal 2002, Kidney 2014), and know that life is damn short -- so by all means we should be playing as hard and as often as we can

I started my radio career back in the mid 90s at WZXA in Racine/Milwaukee, and haven’t looked back since. I had extended stops in Illinois, Florida, and Iowa before landing right here in St. Cloud on January 10th 2012. I’m currently the Operations Manager for the cluster, overseeing programming, and joining you weekday mornings on the Get up & Go Show on Mix 94.9 and evenings on 96.7 The River. I enjoy travelling, live concerts, reading, and spending time with family. I

I'm from Princeton, Minnesota! Go Tigers! I've lived all over the place; Wisconsin, Tennessee and Kentucky , pursuing my broadcasting and musical dreams. I attended college at Bemidji State University with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Broadcasting. I have a passion for music. I've been a pianist, singer and songwriter since I was 13. My album, "When Love Comes Knockin," features original material. I have had the privilege of interviewing great entertainers all over the country, including Jenny McCarthy, from the cast of "The Walking Dead", "Dancing With The Stars," "Duck Dynasty," and "The Voice," and many other entertainers

Life is funny. I started out my radio career, disc-jockeying 70s and 80s hits. I transitioned into news and for the last dozen years, I've been working in digital media. So when the opportunity came up to play the music I love, I jumped at the chance. Because the music on 96.7 The River is quite simply the soundtrack to my life (and probably yours, too). Technically, I'm the Digital Managing Editor for Townsquare Media St. Cloud. The chief web dude, if you will

I'm proud to be the host of the WJON Morning News Watch. The toughest part of the job might be getting up at 4am but when the clock strikes 5 the Magic happens. I spend most of my time searching for both valuable information and meaningless stuff. My two kids keep me busy with both frustration and pride. Tune in weekdays to find out what Magic will happen next.
