DJ Swallow DJ Profile

I was a college radio DJ and station manager in the early 90’s at WKDI - the student run radio station at Northern Illinois University. Over 20 years later, I discovered CHIRP as a listener and now I’m back on the air as a DJ. You can hear me on Monday nights from 6pm-8pm playing a mix of indie, punk, jazz, blues, psych, soul, early rock-n-roll, and of course, local Chicago music. I'm also the CHIRP Marketing Director and looking forward to our upcoming broadcast launch at 107.1FM! #hearwhatsnext

I am a life-long Chicago area resident and have lived on the city’s Northside for over 20 years. My other time is spent as an artist - creating cityscape paintings and photographs of architecture. My studio is located at the Cornelia Arts Building - one of the oldest working art studio buildings in Chicago.
