DJ Stranger Waves DJ Profile

I'm kind of the new kid on the block around here, but I'm not new to independant community radio. I got my start out in Oregon at the station Freeform Portland and fell in love with it right away.

I like to spin an eclectic mix of Indie Rock/Pop, Doo-Wop, Motown, 60's girl groups, Garage Rock, Punk/Post-Punk, Surf, Dance/Electronic,Synth stuff, Riot Grrrl, 80's music & New Wave, Soul, 1920's style Jazz & Ragtime, Blues, and early Rock-N-Roll along w/ featuring plenty of Women, LGBTQIA+ and Artists of Color.

I'll be dj'ing monthly inclusive dance parties at the Heartland Cafe in Rogers Park starting in Feb 2018. In addition to dj'ing, I also serve as Chirp's Assistant Marketing Director. You can tune in to my show every Sunday morning from 6-9 am, and follow me on Twitter and Instagram @dj_stranger_waves.
