With Allan Handelman


The Allan Handelman Show" is more than a talk show. But, how do you describe it to new listeners? It's Exploration radio! Riveting, mind-stretching radio that has always been much more than a talk show. It's the mesmerizing stuff that makes you say, "oh wow", with truly compelling guests you will never forget.

For the past two decades, it's been truly unlike any other talk show in America, and it continues to be the talk show for people who don't listen to talk shows.

Allan was producing compelling talk radio for AOR stations on the FM band long before "FM Talk" became a viable format. It was talk radio on the very stations where the management wanted less talk and more music.

While shows like "Rock Line" and "Modern Rock Live" featured only interviews with bands each week, Allan mixed the biggest names in Rock and entertainment with amazing guests and subjects that kept people glued to the radio. It was sex, drugs, and Rock n' Roll with a whole lot more!

Even before "The Allan Handelman Show" went into syndication, Allan managed to regularly feature high profile guests such as David Letterman and Frank Zappa, despite being limited to one North Carolina station.

Allan was the first to regularly incorporate once taboo subjects such as UFOs and the paranormal into the broad spectrum of topics featured on the show each week. The formula worked! Handelman's ratings often tripled the stations norm. After building to a 31 share for the coveted 18-49 demographic, Allan consistently achieves top numbers in the 25-54, 18-49 and 18-24 demographics.

For over 20 years, he's been serving the Rock culture with the most interesting people in the world.

From its humble beginnings in Eastern North Carolina, to it's enviable rise as the first syndicated radio talk show to originate from the Carolinas, "The Allan Handelman Show" reigns today as one of the most imitated talk shows in the country. With cutting edge bumpers and impossible to get guests, Handelman consistently sets the bar for the industry and the Rock culture alike. While imitation is the highest form of flattery, nothing compares to the original!
