Chris Muckley's lifelong passion for music led him to a similar love of broadcasting. He has been on the air since the age of 18, when he started his career in San Luis Obispo, California. He spent many years at 91X in San Diego, including serving as that station's music director for the better part of a decade. After a move to Los Angeles, Muckley was thrilled to join the DJ staff at KCRW, who enjoy the rare freedom to curate some of the most creative music programming on the planet.
