Started playing records on a Fisher-Price when I was three years old (mostly disco and Captain & Tenille 45s, and scratching up my mom's Carpenters LPs). Music stayed with me, and playing it for other people even more so. My first radio show was on WRCT-FM in Pittsburgh in 1993, when I was still a junior in high school. I stayed on there for the next seven years before moving to Brooklyn, where from 2000 through 2003 I did late nights on the venerable WFMU, and started DJing in bars, clubs, and at shows.
I dabbled in writing about music until about 2005, when I joined up with Dusted and began writing exclusively about vinyl releases for something I called Still Single. That's still going today, and a good percentage of what you'll hear on my show comes out of the pile of records I've been sent to review.
I'm new to Chicago as of 2015, getting settled in, learning a lot about this town and the people in it, and the music you make and enjoy. CHIRP has made the transition a lot easier for me. I hope that my shows reflect my gratitude (and attitude) in bringing you music that won't be found anywhere else on the dial ("the dial") in Chicago.
