Craig Reptile: Your Sunday Sonic Sundowner DJ Profile

Craig Reptile is a DJ, CHIRP volunteer and Assistant Music Director.  He previously worked in radio at KVOE AM and Fox 105 in Emporia, Kansas, and served as a DJ, music director and general manager for WVKC in Knox College, which at one point was voted one of the top ten coolest college radio stations or something like that.  He has been a Senior Staff Writer for Pop'stache and writes freelance for Newcity, in addition to contributing occasionally to the CHIRP blog. Craig has been working in various capacities within the hotel and meetings industry for almost twenty years, so has a plethora of opportunities to utilize his degree in English writing.  He is a member of The Blue Ribbon Glee Club, Chicago's longest-running a capella group that performs punk, indie and alternative rock favorites.  He also fancies himself an armchair herpetologist and thus in addition to a wife, son and cat, he has a day gecko in his collection and is attaining a Master Herpetologist Certification from the Amphibian Foundation..

You can listen to Craig Reptile's two most recent shows here.
