The Chief

Everyday Midnight – 5am

It’s a new generation of radio station for Champaign-Urbana. We’d like to say we did a ton of research and asked you, the loyal Champaign-Urbana listener what you wanted from a radio station, but we didn’t. Instead, we got The Chief and are playing what he wants.

The Chief is unique and different. It’s not like any other radio station. For years, listeners have complained that radio play lists are too limited, too repetitious, there’s too many commercials, too much stupid DJ chatter and it’s generally boring…. Blah, blah, blah. Enough already. Then along came The Chief.

Most stations only play a couple hundred songs, and they play one or two styles of music from a very specific time period. Some of the more adventurous stations may even play THREE styles of music. Woo whoo! These are the real risk takers! The Chief plays a bunch of songs in a row from the 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s. And, we play them from almost ALL styles of music. Well, not polka everyone has their limits.

As it turns out, we decided on “Playing What The Chief Wants.” The Chief is playing the best songs from the 60’s 70′s, 80′s & 90′s. Just a bunch of songs in a row. We hope you like it, or not, your call. It’s The New 92.5 The Chief.

The Chief was born in a remote part of Champaign County also know as a corn field. The Chief never attended school, he was busy working at the local grain mill. He got his first job at the age of four.

While working at the mill the Chief suffered a career ending injury and now lives off of the Government. With The Chief’s huge lawsuit settlement he bought a local radio station the rest is history.
