Allen Davis

The Afternoon Drive with Allen Davis
Monday-Saturday 1:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.
Originally a fan of rock and pop, Davis was introduced with Country music during its boom during the early 90s. “I headed to Dallas to chase a woman, who introduced me to Garth Brooks, George Strait, Brooks and Dunn, Lorrie Morgan and a whole bunch of other folks, many who are still really big today.”

Not caught up in the star culture, Davis cites artists such as Vince Gill and Martina McBride among those whose body of work stands the test of time. “I still think a good tune and a good message are most important. If you’re a ‘nobody’ but you have a great song and sing it and play it well, to me, that’s more important than having a big name.”

Davis has previously worked both in commercial and non-commercial radio in several other locations. He holds a full-time job in addition to his duties at KTTI, so he apologizes in advance for being “a sometimes hard man to get a hold of.”

“As someone who went from working behind the scenes in the business to going back to just being a listener, I experienced the frustration locals have living in a stepping-stone market for talent,” Davis said. “I appreciate when someone on the air here is both local and professional, who can inform credibly and pronounce names correctly but also entertain when the right opportunity presents itself. That’s what the Yuma audience will get with me.”
