Friday Night Jams



We kick off the weekend like no one else in Chicago featuring throwbacks and old school mixes all night long.

We’re live on the radio at 7PM doin’ it like we did back in the day, bringin’ old school back with classic dance, throwbacks, old school mixes, freestyle and house music all night long.

At 8PM we kick off the mix show with the Friday night residents and guest DJS.

The Friday Night Jams mix show here on The Beat features guest DJS each week.

You can listen live on the FM at 102.3 FM in the Chicagoland area (SW suburbs), here on our website or in our app anytime, click here to download our APP.

You can also ask ALEXA to PLAY WCKG on iHeartRadio to listen

If you miss any of the mixes, we upload them to the website every Tuesday. We alert our listeners when the mixes are ready via our FB page and our APP.

Each mix is uploaded with information about the DJS including links to their social networks, website and more. We also include the tracklist of the mix and the ability for you to listen to it anytime, on demand with even more features.

All the mixes feature classic dance, throwbacks, old school, classic house, freestyle, disco and funk of the 70s, 80s and 90s.
