Josh Friedberg: Music Historian's Corner DJ Profile

I am a music historian who has written articles, columns, and essays for PopMatters, Good Men Project, The Daring, and Country Queer, as well as my college newspaper and other sources. I was an active DJ doing eclectic music shows at a public radio station located on my college campus, WECI 91.5 FM. I really look forward to getting involved with CHIRP and a broader community of music listeners in Chicago!

Listen to Josh's two most recent shows below.
