Diary of an Overnight Radio DJ: Gearing up for Lollapalooza!

Summer in Chicago is so precious because it’s so temporary. For every minute that goes by I feel the sand falling in the hourglass and I know if I don’t get to Oz I’m screwed. But what’s Oz? Now that it’s just past midsummer, why not take a minute to evaluate all of those summer goals you set for yourself during the long winter? Have you met your beer drinking quota? How are you doing on taco eating? And Ice cream? Well, I hope. I have not read as much as I planned on. (In related news I’m well into season 3 of Shameless). I would also like to go camping but I keep finding myself at street festivals and other fun city things. But I’m not worried, there’s still plenty of summer left.


Everyone here at the station has been working hard to get our ducks in a row for Lollapalooza this weekend. Check out a few of my “must see” sets. There are 2 more on-air chances to win a pair of 4 day passes to the fest! Tune in Wednesday night during the 7 pm and 8 pm hours. Give it a shot! You miss 100% of the Lollapalooza passes you don’t take.


For another chance to win a pair of 4 day passes, come see us at the Jewel-Osco in the South Loop (1224 S. Wabash) Wednesday evening (7/27) from 5-7 pm. We announce the winners at 6 pm and 7 pm, and you must be present to win. Courtesy of Topo Chico.

See you at the fest this weekend! Follow XRT on Twitter and Facebook for festival updates, and if you can’t make it out there, tune in for our live backstage coverage from Marty Lennartz and Jason Thomas all weekend long at 93xrt.com and 93.1 FM.

Be safe this weekend!


P.S. XRT now is on Snapchat! Add us at XRTChicago for an inside look at the station. Or just me using that dog filter, that one is the best.
