About The Beat Chicago

The Beat is Chicago’s #1 choice for throwbacks and old school mixes.

Listen to us anytime, anywhere on any device when you download our free app.

We’re part of a family of online radio stations including Chicago’s WBMX… yes, the REAL WBMX

On the weekends, we’re bringin’ old school back to the radio in Chicagoland on 102.3 FM Friday Nights from 7PM – 7AM | Saturday Nights from 7PM – 7AM | Sunday Nights from 7AM – 7PM
We keep the history of Chicago’s DJ mixes alive with our Friday Night Jams and our Saturday Night Live Ain’t No Jive Chicago Dance Party which start at 8PM CT

Our Saturday Night Live Ain’t No Jive Chicago Dance Party features mixes from our resident DJS including Mickey Mixin’ Oliver, an original member of the U.S. Dance Music Hall of Fame inductees The Hot Mix 5 and others.

Less commercials, less of the played out songs and more of the music that keeps you movin’ and makes you feel good!

There’s no other station like it, we bring the history and heritage of Chicago’s throwbacks and old school to you like no other station. We count on our great listeners to help spread the word! We’ll let the music do the talking, you share it! All we ask is that you help share and spread the word on your social network pages.

Back in the day, people used to record their favorite DJS mixes on the radio stations like our sister network WBMX using a cassette tape. Now that we’re here, you don’t have to go through that nonsense anymore. Each week we upload all the mixes from our Friday Night Jams and our Saturday Night Live Ain’t No Jive Chicago Dance Party along with the tracklist from each mix for you to listen to on demand, anytime, so you never miss a beat.  They’re also available on demand in our app!
