Chicago, IL 60625

Our next New Volunteer Orientation is scheduled for Saturday, October 11th at 10:30 a.m. at the Conrad Sulzer Regional Library in Lincoln Square, 4455 N. Lincoln Avenue.   

To become a CHIRP staff member/volunteer it is mandatory that you attend one of our new volunteer orientations.  This orientation should last an hour, ending at 11:30 a.m. 

At the orientation, you get to hear from our department heads on how to get involved in areas like Events, Marketing, Production, Tech, Partnerships and more.  You will also be able to learn about our DJ training and find out more information on CHIRP, what we are all about, and specific ways in which you can volunteer with us. 

Afterward, if you decide to join CHIRP, you get access to our volunteer intranet and volunteer task sign-up site. We have monthly staff meetings where we discuss what's going on that month as well as what we have planned long term.  These general staff meetings are held the third Thursday of the month. 

In the mean time, if you are interested in checking out more CHIRP activities - consider attending one of events found on the CHIRP events calendar.

We ask you to RSVP in order to estimate the number of attendees.  

Thanks!

CHIRP Radio presents The First Time: First Fight

RSVP to this event Buy tickets to this event

Martyrs’
3855 N. Lincoln Ave.
Chicago, IL
773.404.9494

21+


CHIRP Radio’s Live Lit and Music series, The First Time, pairs a reader’s personal story about a First Time event with a song performance. This unique structure allows the story to resonate with audience members as they experience the accompanying song covered by The First Time Three band. The band takes special care to perform unexpected song arrangements, so it is hard to tell which the audience enjoys more each story or each song.

Hosted by CHIRP DJ Jenn Sodini, October's theme is First Fight for Wednesday, October 15th at 8 p.m.  Doors open at 7 p.m. and scheduled performers include:

ShowYouSuck, Performance Artist
Ian Belknap, Producer of Write Club
Nathan Rabin, Writer - The Dissolve
Martin Morrow, Comedian
Katie Prout, Storyteller
Maya Schenwar, Journalist
Jessi D. , CHIRP DJ

The First Time is a benefit for CHIRP Radio and tickets are $10.  You can purchase tickets on the Martyrs' website.
