WHAT IS THE MIND’S EAR?
The Mind’s Ear is a weekly experimental radio program produced in Chicago by Ernestus Jiminy Chald. Free-form in the truest sense, and wildly transilient in form and theme from one program to the next—often from one moment to the next—The Mind’s Ear is an auricular observatory of the unforeheard.
WHEN/WHERE CAN I HEAR THE MIND’S EAR?
New programs premiere every Saturday night at 9 p.m. (PST) with an encore presentation every Sunday night at 7 p.m. (PST) on Free Radio Santa Cruz (101.3 FM).
For those outside the station’s range, you can live-stream each broadcast from anywhere in the world via the Freak Radio Live Stream (listen via VLC player) and on Radio.net (listen in your browser or on the Radio.net app).
For those unable to tune in live, you can listen to old broadcasts of many shows in The Mind’s Ear Archive.
You can also listen to previous broadcasts on Radio4All.net.
If you are in Chicago, you can tune in to rebroadcasts of The Mind’s Ear on WPOX FM. New programs that premiere on Free Radio Santa Cruz are rebroadcast the following week every Friday night at 7 p.m. (CST) on Pox FM.
You can also catch periodic rebroadcasts of The Mind’s Ear on KDX Radio,
and on WNVR (1030 AM) in Chicago.

WHO CREATES THE MIND’S EAR?

CAN I BE ON THE MIND’S EAR?
Although Ernestus Jiminy Chald writes and produces virtually every episode of The Mind’s Ear, he makes it a mission to share the FM airwaves from time to time with other radio artists and sonic spelunkers whose work he admires. These programs fall under the moniker of “The Mind’s Ear Presents . . . “. Chald also curates “Earscapes” on Free Radio Santa Cruz, a program that showcases the work of lesser known radio artists, composers, and spoken word performers. If you would like to have your work considered for a future episode of “The Mind’s Ear Presents. . .” or “Earscapes”, send us a message via our “Contact” page with some information about yourself and links to samples of your work. As The Mind’s Ear is an anti-genre/anti-format/anti-everything program, there are no guidelines or restrictions as to what sorts of material Chald will consider (aside from the self-evident requirement that submitted material must contain audible sound of some sort).
