I wrote to Mike Allen about the Capital Rap Show in 2002 whilst he was at Talk Radio, with the hope that he may write back, to my great surprise I received a phone call from him a few days later. It was quite surreal speaking to him on the phone, this was a voice I had listened to for many hours over the previous 15+ years and now I was actually chatting with him. We spoke a couple of times on the phone and Mike agreed to do an interview, Mike was really helpful and put a great deal of time and effort into typing up answers to a number of questions I forwarded to him, I was and still am very grateful for the time he put in.
