Chuck Armstrong

For as long as he can remember, Chuck has been crazy about rock and roll. His first concert was Def Leppard at the age of 6 - and the rest, as they say, is history. He's been on-air for one of the biggest rock radio stations in the country (you can call him F 'Em Up Chuck) and now he's enjoying life living in New York City. Keep on rockin' in the free world!
