Mike Nikolich DJ Profile

I host The Friday Spin from noon to 3 pm CST every Friday afternoon. My show is an eclectic mix of new and old indie, world, alternative, punk, rock, jazz, prog, ambient, blues, soul and anything else that works. If you like Chicago blues, listen to the "Pre-Happy Hour Blues" at 1:55 pm, plus there's "Cover 3" at 2:25 pm, featuring one obscure original, and three cool covers of songs you may or may not recognize. My show also features concert news, rock and roll birthdays, and lots of music trivia. Oh yeah, and I love to play your requests, so submit them to you via any of CHIRP's social media channels, my Facebook page ("Mike Nikolich") or dj@chirpradio.org. If I can't work your request into today's show, it definitely will air the following week.

 

Check out Mike's two most recent shows here.
