Lumpen Radio (WLPN) is insurgent radio from Chicago! Live on the Web. Fresh to your head.

Lumpen Radio is a non-commercial radical radio station from Chicago (on 105.5 FM) that showcases innovative ideas, plays highly curated music, and broadcasts commentary on the issues of our day. WLPN spotlights the hidden parts of the city we love, amplifying its voices and sounds. We are a station for the people that live and work in the city, people everywhere that love Chicago's underground cultures, and people who love the idea of freeform radio wherever they are.

Get the free Lumpen Radio app on your iPhone or iPad, and you'll never miss the madness. Play live Lumpen Radio in your car, hook up to a speaker via Bluetooth and AirPlay, or just put your headphones on and tune in.

This app is great! It's simple and makes listening to Lumpen Radio available anywhere! Great music, discussion on random shi$&y beer and more. I even think my IQ has jumped a few points by listening.
