Jenny West DJ Profile

MUSIC FOR CHAMELEONS - Tuesdays 8-10pm


Hey, I'm Jenny! I'm a lifelong Chicagoan with an appreciation for the diversity of experience this fabulous city has to offer. Music has always been a passion of mine, from singing in the choir as a kid to seeing shows whenever I can and belting out jazz standards in the shower. Oh, and I'm always, always listening to the radio. I also love pop culture generally, writing and traveling in my spare time, and reading science fiction. And I have a Master's degree in social science. Basically, a little bit of everything!
