Chrissy B

I WAS BORN AND RAISED IN NEW JERSEY AND MOVED TO PENNSYLVANIA IN THE LATE 90S. THEN BRIEFLY MOVED TO DELAWARE FOR A YEAR BEFORE COMING BACK TO PENNSYLVANIA..

AS A YOUNGSTER MY SISTER AND I LOVED MUSIC. WE WERE BIG MUSIC FANS OF THE 80S AND WE LOVED ATTENDING CONCERTS TOGETHER.

MY SISTER AND I ALSO LOVED DANCING. WE WERE IN DANCING SCHOOL TOGETHER SINCE WE WERE TODDLERS. AND COMPETED IN SEVERAL COMPETITIONS TOGETHER. WE ALSO DID 8 SHOWS ON “DANCE PARTY USA,” A TEEN DANCE SHOW FROM THE 80S. MY SISTER AND I WERE VERY CLOSE.

 

IN 1987, TRAGEDY STRUCK AND SADLY, MY SISTER, MY BETTER HALF, PASSED AWAY FROM AN ALLERGIC REACTION TO PENICILLIN AT 16 YEARS OLD, WHICH DEVASTATED ME AND BROKE MY HEART.

AS A TEEN I REMEMBER HOW SOME OF MY FRIENDS LOVED DEE JAYING AND MIXING MUSIC WITH VINYL AND MAKING MIXED TAPES. I THOUGHT TO MYSELF, "HOW HARD THAT MUST BE”. BUT, I WAS ALWAYS FASCINATED BY IT.

I ATTENDED KEAN COLLEGE IN UNION NEW JERSEY. AND MANY YEARS LATER, I EVENTUALLY APPLIED FOR A JOB AS A MOBILE DJ. I DEE JAYED AT A CLUB IN ALLENTOWN, PENNSYLVANIA AND DEE JAYED FOR SEVERAL PARTIES AND WEDDINGS. AND I LOVED IT. SO FROM THEN ON, MY DREAM WAS TO BECOME A RADIO DJ. I THEN GOT INTO A CAR ACCIDENT. A TRACTOR TRAILER HIT MY CAR FROM BEHIND AND MESSED UP MY BACK PRETTY BAD. I COULD NO LONGER LIFT THE HEAVY DJ EQUIPMENT THAT I NEEDED TO IN ORDER TO SET IT UP BEFORE THE SHOWS, AND BREAK IT AND BREAK IT DOWN AFTERWARDS. AFTER SEVERAL LONG YEARS OF PHYSICAL THERAPY, DOCTOR VISITS, AND 2 SURGERIES, I STILL HAD BAD BACK PAIN AND WAS NOT ABLE TO LIFT MORE THAN 20 POUNDS. SO THEN I BELIEVED THAT THIS WAS TIME TO WORK TOWARDS MY DREAM OF BECOMING A RADIO DJ. I APPLIED AT PENN'S PEAK RADIO, TO WHOM I AM FOREVER GRATEFUL, AND LANDED MY DREAM JOB THERE, AND THE REST IS HISTORY. I WOULD ALSO LOVE TO EVENTUALLY WRITE A BOOK ABOUT MY LIFE.
