Chris Siuty DJ Profile

I'm a life long Chicagoan, northwest sider and enthusiast of radio and music (not necessarily in that order).  I've had stints on most of the north side indie radio stations as well as played in countless bands most people haven't heard of (for better or worse.)  I'm always writing and working on music as well as a radio drama podcast series about Polish mythology and werewolves.  I prefer square cut tavern style pizza to deep dish, I think the Chicago accent is the best accent and will always correct you when you call pierogi "pierogies" (but not when you call Jewel "the Jewels.") I'm a night owl who in another life was a professional recording engineer committing to tape the works of many a punk and indie rock band (for better or worse.) 

What to expect -- Experimental music, noise, punk, hardcore, metal, post punk, new wave, psych rock, garage, ska, jazz, hip hop, reggae, and anything fun and/or challenging. It's a cornacopia overflowing with weirdos and maniacs.
