Resident girl-from-the-north-country Karin Fjellman has been involved in independent radio since her first year of college, and her love affair has since only gotten worse. Like most CHIRP DJs, her playlists showcase an amalgam of eras and genres, and she's always on the prowl for sounds that have yet to grace her headphones. With Shangri-Las lyrics embedded into her brain long before she learned how to operate her coveted childhood cassette player, it comes as no surprise to hear a fair sample of girl group pop in her weekly sets. Karin DJs weddings and other big events for a living, and in her spare time she creates palatable inventions in her kitchen, sings in a punk rock choir, and delights in varied comic books. She currently resides in Chicago's Humboldt Park neighborhood.
