Alli Klein DJ Profile

Born and raised in the south west suburbs of Chicago, I would fall asleep every night listening to Oldies 104.3 or 93.1 WXRT and have dreams of some day doing what my favorite DJs, Dick Biondi or Terri Hemmert do for a living. Using my grandfather's cassette tape recorder, I would make my own radio shows and mix tapes as a small child as presents for my mom.
Luckily, my high school had a radio station and I quickly got involved there, co-hosting a show for three years and moving on to attend Columbia College Chicago where I pursued a Bachelor's in Radio. At the college station WCRX, I was On-Air for 3 years, Music Director for 1 year, and Public Affairs Director for 1 year. I interned at WLUP 97.9 The Loop for 6 months in the Programming department, and got to help out with Q101's programming as well.  I got involved with CHIRP in the Fall of 2008.


For 5 years following college, I was an overnight board operator for WUSN US99.5, and also had a 9 month stint as co-producer of Lisa Dent & Ramblin' Ray's morning show.

Right now I am taking a break from commercial radio and focusing on CHIRP!

I also am a DJ with Toast & Jam, Inc. meaning I DJ at parties and weddings! check us out here.

My Interests besides DJing/Radio:
record collecting, drinking tea, going to as many concerts as possible, sustainable living, crafts and kitsch, gardening, canning, cooking, hanging out as much as possible with my Irish Setter Rudy & my husband Will.
