Chris Monroe

My radio journey began back in April of 2004. I started as an intern for the night show of a local Top 40 station. After making my way up through the ranks there, long story short, I caught wind of a weekend opening for The Banana and jumped on it. Now, I am the Promotions Director for the greatest station in the Universe. I feel very lucky to be doing what I'm doing now. The Machine Shop has become a home away from home and I love being apart of every Banana Event out there. My two favorites are the Bad Golfers League and the Bad Bowlers League. It's a blast to be able to spend so much time and hang out with our kick ass listeners. Life is good, cheers aholes!

Funny Halloween Light Show Set To ‘What Does The Fox Say?’

Now even though 'What Does The Fox Say?' is a pretty stupid song, this is still funny to watch.  I really enjoy when comedians come through with great songs like this to make fun of all the pop stars out there.  And now that the song is now stuck in your head, enjoy hump day.
