Chris Martin

"...not that geek from Coldplay" - Dave Grohl.

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. He also loves delving into the forgotten stuff that none of us can remember from the 1990s.

Chris also puts some proper rock into your journey home, hosting Classic Rock Drive on Absolute Classic Rock every weekday from 4pm. If youâ??re up early on the weekend you can catch Chris from 6am on Absolute Radio 90s.

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, and achieved a childhood dream of playing in central defence at Elland Road. It may only have been a 5-a-side competition on the pitch, but it definitely counts.
