Bio: Mister Al plays a jazzy style of blues known as O'Hare Blues. With an 8 string guitar, Mister Al slows it down and jazzes it up while backing his smooth and mellow baritone vocals. He plays his guitar in a unique (D minor 13) tuning he invented called "Mister Al Tuning"

“If you're scanning the FM radio dial on a Tuesday night and you suddenly feel relaxed, you might be listening to Mr. Al. "Turn it up and cool it down," says the disc jockey in a voice oozing with mellow tones, "Mr. Al's Lounge, every Tuesday at 7 p.m., on WHCM FM 88.3, and streaming live at WHCMFM.com. Lounge Lives!" And so begins another installment of Mr. Al's Lounge, a delightfully quirky radio program, containing a smorgasbord of smooth jazz, blues, rat pack, soulful ballads, New Orleans music and other niche genres, broadcast from a second-floor studio in the middle of the student lounge at Harper College in Palatine. "There's definitely elements of humor in (lounge music), it's a genre in retrospect," Leinonen said. "At the time there was no lounge genre." So what exactly is lounge music you ask? Think something between easy listening and elevator music, Wayne Newton in Las Vegas, Jackie Gleason, mix in some mambo and The Lettermen covering "Hello I Love You" by The Doors.”
