The Wizard is Chicago's only freeform radio station. Freeform radio means that you can hear any type of music whenever you turn us on, day or night.
At any given moment you could be introduced to something new and exciting, wild and weird, and sometimes even nice and familiar! We always say, if you don't like what you're hearing right now, change the dial--but tune in 5 minutes later and you'll hear something TOTALLY different--and you might just love it!
punk, funk, hiphop, house, experimental, noise, gameboy, klezmer, rock, blues, jungle, classical, spoken word, comedy, folk, tuvan throat singing, bollywood, country, psychobilly, cabaret, industrial, swing, acid jazz, awkward dead air...the sky's the limit
