Episode 16: Ryan Arnold of WXRT

Seemingly born into radio, Ryan Arnold is an avid music fanatic beyond what you hear him spin as a DJ on Chicago's WXRT. When he's not on the air, you can find him record shopping, checking out local bands and generally supporting any and all who are creating, showcasing or promoting music in the Windy City. I interviewed Ryan at the XRT studios after an awesome lunch at The Billy Goat Tavern, and we discussed his previous experience working on a railroad, what makes Chicago special musically, what he's been spinning lately, this year's Lollapalooza line-up and lots more! You can follow Ryan via @ryanarnoldrocks on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. And make sure to follow the show via @vinylemergency as well, and write the show: vinylemergency@gmail.com.
