Mike Scales : Horseshoes & Hand Grenades DJ Profile

Mike's your average working stiff, native Chicagoan and former college radio DJ (RIP WEIU!). When he’s not helping fight crime in his own special way for Cook County, you can find him drinking at metal shows or hitting drums for the HŸSS. Catch him live during the occasional DJ sub shift here on CHIRP.
