Chillin' and Grillin' is back this year after a semester-long hiatus, and this time around, the show boasts a new DJ. Mitch Fabricant '14 joins Isabelle Franks '14 and Peter Kringdon '14, who debuted Chillin' and Grillin' together last fall.
The three would argue that Chillin' and Grillin' is more than a radio show—it's a lifestyle. Their weekly show provides Bowdoin students and the greater Brunswick community with grooves and the local weather.
