Matt Garman DJ Profile

Monday afternoon, 3-6pm CT.  I love collecting vinyl records, and my radio show is a place to share finds and justify the habit. A typical broadcast features great new music woven with classic cuts and new discoveries. 

I joined CHIRP in 2010 and immediately got to work on what matters most: sourcing good music from genres and eras I know less about. I intentionally include more than just cisgender white men with guitars, making diversity the cornerstone of my time with you, rather than the seasoning -- there are endless possibilities. I love the station and our listeners! See you on the air.
