About Chris Martin
Chris is a massive music geek. Every decade of rock n roll is catalogued inside his head. While this may be useful in a pub quiz, it's put to more use right here.
On Absolute Radio he unites the UK's night workers for great music, silliness and the greatest football quiz on the radio. Every afternoon he plays the best funk, soul and rock n roll on Absolute Radio 60s. He also loves delving into the forgotten stuff that none of us can remember from the 1990s.
He works as part of the music team here playing around with the music, interviewing rock gods and making music specials. He's interviewed everyone from Arcade Fire and Muse to the Rolling Stones and Led Zeppelin. He's as happy as the proverbial pig in muck.
Chris is a Leeds United fan. He's also just bought a house and so he's often found with paint all over his hands and shaking the plaster out of his hair.
