Lumpen Radio is on the airwaves at 105.5 FM in Chicago & online here.

We are a non-profit, community radio station located in the Bridgeport neighborhood of Chicago. You can hear our radio signal throughout Chicago at 105.5FM and tune-in everyone from our website. WLPN-LP is operated by a community of volunteers: we are DJs, curators, producers, writers and organizers who work to connect you with the music and ideas we think you will love. 

What's the station all about?
Our aim is to spotlight the hidden parts of Chicago, amplifying its voices and sounds. We’re here to promote an open media, unite communities, and magnify the hard work of artists, musicians, activists and cultural workers.

We make & share all of our programming with you for free, because we think its important. Our station is listener supported so we rely on donations and financial support from donors like you.

Where is my money going?
Although we are a 100% volunteer radio station we spend our annual budget on the essentials we need to keep the station on-air: renting radio tower space, equipment (mics, turntables, cables) electricity, hosting for our website, and our small staff (of one!) that manages the station.


Are you really a non profit?
Yep! The Public Media Institute, the organization that manages WLPN, is a 501(c) 3 non profit corporation that may receive tax-deductible charitable contributions from individuals and corporations. Reach out to us if you'd like to make a larger donation or become a corporate sponsor.
