Alli Klein: Family of Noise DJ Profile

From making radio shows and mix tapes as a kid for my mom in the south west suburbs of Chicago, to my 3 years of high school radio station, on to a Bachelor's in Radio at Columbia College Chicago, where at their station WCRX, I was On-Air for 3 years, Music Director for 1 year, and Public Affairs Director for 1 year.  
Then I interned at WLUP 97.9 The Loop in the Programming department, and helped out with Q101's programming as well.  This brings me to getting involved with CHIRP in the Fall of 2008.
I became an overnight board operator for WUSN US99.5 for 5 years, && 9 month stint as co-producer of Lisa Dent & Ramblin' Ray's morning show.

Right now I am taking a break from commercial radio and focusing on CHIRP!

I also am a DJ with Toast & Jam, Inc. meaning I DJ for parties and weddings! check us out here.

My Interests besides DJing/Radio:
record collecting, playing with dogs, drinking tea, going to as many concerts as possible, sustainable living, crafts and kitsch, gardening, canning, cooking, going on adventures with my husband Will.

You might hear: punk rock, post punk, garage, psych, drone, dub, power pop, grunge, and lots of local!

You can find the two latest editions of the Family of Noise show here.
