Steve 'Sparky' Fifer


Steve "Sparky" Fifer started out his career in radio in Kenosha, WI interning for Tim Allen and helping to produce a weekend sports talk show for Tim Allen and John Weiser. After a couple of months of interning, he was put on the payroll and started jocking oldies at night on the AM station while engineering high school football and basketball games during the week. During this time he attended Gateway Technical College for Radio Broadcasting, while maintaing two other jobs outside of his radio gig.

After ownership changed, he left to go to Lake Geneva to try his hand in sales. After three months of making every attempt, he didn't make one sale!! Management figured out they made a mistake and made him the morning show producer. While in that role he broke out as an on-air personality by playing the character "Stuttering" Stu Michaels. Sparky used that momentum to cruise into Milwaukee radio a short time later. He landed a gig at WISN-AM as producer of The World’s Greatest Sports Talk Show, staying in that role for 6 years.
 
When WSSP launched in 2005, Sparky joined the roster. One of the most busy personalities on the station, you can hear him on The Big Show(Weekday Afternoons 2-6pm), Sparky’s Final Inspection (Saturdays 12p-2p), Milwaukee's Real Basketball Post Game Show (after Bucks games)and the Usinger's Baseball Post Game Show (after Brewers games). When he's not on the air, you can catch the avid NASCAR fan following the exploits of his favorite driver, Kevin Harvick.

Tim 'The Franchise' Allen


One of Southeast Wisconsin’s leading and longtime broadcasters. Tim has been in the radio industry for over 20 years. A veteran of stations like 95 WIIL, 104.7 The Wolf, AM1050 WLIP, and WSSP, Tim also taught radio for 7 years at Gateway Technical College.

An avid sports fan, Tim hosts the Brewers Post Game Show. The love of sports rivals his love of music. Guitar has been a passion of Tim’s since 1983. One of his ‘brothers-in-law’ gave him an old guitar, and told him that it would end up in a closet at some point soon. That challenge, and his love for music, was enough to provide the motivation to learn. “It’s more of a fun factor at this point” claims Tim. “Playing guitar and singing is one of the healthiest addictions you can have.”

When it came time to give up the physical side of actually playing sports, he went into coaching youth sports, despite not having any children at the time. “It was my way of staying involved in team sports.  My radio show is also my way of staying involved with a team." Tim’s broadcast partner and long time friend Steve “Sparky” Fifer says that working with Tim is demanding, professional and a lot of fun. “Losing is not an option for him” states Fifer.

Personal Side:
 
Tim is father to an 18 year old son. His son Ty is more into the sports side of life, but does enjoy music as well. Tim receives a lot of feedback from his son, as band practice is held in the family basement.
 
Marital Status: Single and loving it. Divorced since 2001, and loving that too!
 
Hobbies: Obviously music, guitar, singing. However, Tim is an avid book reader. "I read at least a couple books per week" says Tim. "They're mostly fiction, but once in a while I'll grab a sports book, or a biography."
 
Marital Status: Still single
 
Addictions: The Milwaukee Brewers, Music, and Las Vegas (Tim has traveled to Sin City over 50 times)
