Matt Garman DJ Profile

Friday nights, 8-10pm CT. Click here to get my playlists via email, which I send out right before I go on the air each week.

The honest truth is that I am mildly obsessed with collecting vinyl records, and the radio show is a place for me to share my finds and justify the habit, at least a little bit. A typical broadcast will feature the best new music CHIRP Radio has to offer, woven with my own penchant for cuts that evoke memories, as well as stuff I never got into when it was a thing for others; I just decided I am no longer too cool for the stuff I used to think I was too cool for. Is anyone?

My taste journey might be: whatever mom liked ---> MTV ---> hair metal ---> hip-hop ---> electonica ---> jazz ---> whatever mom didn't like ---> alt-rock ---> indie rock ---> punk ---> funk ---> folk ---> soul ---> blues and country ---> non-cis-white-males ---> etc etc etc
