ALL Show

Chicago is a sports city and ALL Sports with Allen L. Linton II is a Chicago sport's talk show. Tune in for engaging discussions of sports issues and off the field. Sports clich├ęs meet sabermetrics. We love our teams but hate publicly financed stadiums. Listeners can always call the show to bring their ideas, questions, and attitude. More analysis, fewer hot takes.
