Jeff describes his first love (pinball) and cops to his obsession with everything Bob Barker and The Price as Right. And he answers 10 questions.

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.
