Austin Hour


Chris Austin has had a variety of careers, starting out as a dentist, then a software entrepreneur and most recently as an account manager for several federal agencies. While the jobs have come and gone, one thing has stayed the same — his enjoyment of making people laugh.

Whether it’s writing a humor column for a dental journal (tough gig!), standup comedy, funny books or articles for The Beachcomber, he loves to put a smile on your face and he hopes to do just that during the Voice of Vashon’s “Morning Scramble,” “Austin Hour,” and “Austin in the Afternoon.” If you would like to know more please visit,

About The Austin Hour
What is the “Austin Hour”, hmm? With guests like Madeleine Albright and Vladimir Putin, you might think it’s a news show. With trivia and listener call-in games, you might think it’s a quiz show. And if you’re not particularly bright, you might think it’s an educational show. So if Walter Cronkite, Alex Trebek and Bill Nye somehow had a child, it would be the “Austin Hour” — a gangly baby with a mustache and male pattern baldness. Good luck getting that image out of your head!
