Mike Nikolich DJ Profile

I have been passionate about music since I was a kid and worked as a DJ in college at WHCM (Harper College) and WKDI (Northern Illinois University). After discovering CHIRP at a Trail of Dead concert at the Bottom Lounge several years ago, I became a regular listener and donor. As an active volunteer, I enjoy reviewing new music for CHIRP and started DJing in March 2016. You can listen to my regular shift on Fridays from 12 noon to 3 pm. I guarantee that you will hear artists that aren't played anywhere but on CHIRP -- and I love to play your requests!
