    Ok, I’m confused. Kris Eric Stevens….was that his real name?? Or was it John Allgood?. Did John Allgood ever work at WLS? I was in VietNam with John Allgood, and I could have sworn he said he was there. I grew up in Atlanta, and could pick up WLS at night. If John was not there, then they both sound very similar. Ole John was one of the radio DJ on AFVN in Saigon, VietNam.. I think John said he used the name Kris Stevens, ….perhaps not Eric.
    Thank you.

    I know, I was told John Allgood passed away in 2006. Hated to hear that.
    Thanks again.

    Hello my fellow Atlanta native. I am Karl Phillips. Kris Eric Stevens is his real name. Great jock. He worked at CKLW Detroit, KQV Pittsburgh, WMYQ Miami, WLS and WCFL Chicago WQXI Atlanta, KKDJ and KIIS Los Angeles. I just missed him when I went to work at QUIXIE in Atlanta in 1969. He still does voiceover work and has a website you can check out.
