Alli Klein: Family of Noise DJ Profile

Radio Background:

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.  
During college, I interned at WLUP 97.9 The Loop in the Programming department, and helped out with Q101's programming as well. After college, I became an overnight board operator for WUSN US99.5 for 5 years, && had a 9 month stint as co-producer of Lisa Dent & Ramblin' Ray's morning show.  Somewhere along the way I got involved with CHIRP in the Fall of 2008.

Now:

Aside from CHIRP, I also work for Toast & Jam, Inc. meaning I DJ for parties and weddings!   Most recenly I began working as a Production Coordinator with Smashed Plastic Record Pressing in March of 2021, the only vinyl record plant in Chicago!

On Family of Noise 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.
