DJ Stranger Waves DJ Profile

 I got my start in community radio out in Oregon at the station Freeform Portland and fell in love with it right away.

I like to spin an eclectic mix of Indie Rock/Pop, Doo-Wop, Motown, 60's girl groups, Garage Rock, Punk/Post-Punk, Surf, Dance/Electronic,Synth stuff, Riot Grrrl, 80's music & New Wave, Soul, 1920's style Jazz & Ragtime, Blues, and early Rock-N-Roll along w/ featuring plenty of Women, LGBTQIA+ and Artists of Color. 

In addition to DJ'ing, I also serve as Chirp's Assistant Marketing Director. You can tune in to my show every Sunday morning from 6-9 am, and follow me on Twitter and Instagram @dj_stranger_waves. Check out my last two shows at our archives here.
