Fred W DJ Profile

I've been a music and radio fanatic ever since I got my first Panasonic ball radio in year 1921. I'm that old. Good radio is never a given and I cherish when I discover either a good station like Chirp - I was a fan before I started DJing here - or a good DJ. I've served in the US Navy, sold radio, DJ'd, performed administrative and accounting functions, and run a college basketball tournament in the past. I currently own a service and sales business for coffee and espresso-related equipment. I've lived in Chicago for the most part since 1994 and love my city. I like to cycle and catch live music whenever I can in my spare time.

You can listen to Fred's two most recent shows below:
