Jeff Parsons in his own words

I’ve been a radio personality for almost 21 years, 16 of which have been with WJBQ Q97.9 in Portland. I’m a father of a six-year-old boy going on sixteen, a pinball player, video game player, sci-fi geek, computer nerd, poker player who never wins and I wish I could have been the next Bob Barker but instead they hired that pantload Drew Carey without even giving me a look. I also enjoy Necco wafers and dislike animals, two things very uncommon with humans.
