This weekend’s program, “Malformities,” is exceptionally peculiar even by Mind’s Ear standards.  We won’t even attempt to describe what one can expect from this program, because no description we could muster would give you an adequate idea of what to expect.

THE MIND’S EAR PRESENTS: JOE FRANK

The Mind’s Ear will be observing a week of silence in memory of Joe Frank, one of the greatest innovators and visionaries ever to work in the medium of radio whose trailblazing work has had a colossal influence on innumerable radio artists throughout the world, including Ernestus Chald.  Joe passed away this week at the age of 79 and his passing will leave a void in the field of radio art that can never be filled.

Instead of premiering a new episode of The Mind’s Ear this weekend, Ernestus Chald will be paying tribute to Joe Frank by airing a collection of his personal favorite Joe Frank programs on Free Radio Santa Cruz, in addition to several programs handpicked by Joe’s wife, Michal.  You can tune in to “The Mind’s Ear Presents: Joe Frank” on Free Radio Santa Cruz (101.3 FM) on Saturday, January 20th at 9 p.m. (PST).  On Sunday, January 21st, Chald will be airing another three hour block of Joe Frank programs starting at 7 p.m. (PST) on Free Radio Santa Cruz.

If you are outside of the station’s signal range and are unable to tune in on 101.3 FM, you can listen from anywhere in the world by diving into the live stream by clicking here.

For more information on Joe Frank, we encourage you to visit Joe’s website.  While you are there, purchase some of his programs to help support his wife during this very difficult time.

The Mind’s Ear will return with an all new episode on January 27th.

THE MIND’S EAR PROGRAM #6 PREMIERES ON SATURDAY, DECEMBER 30TH:

If you missed last weekend’s broadcasts of “A Stockingful of Coal”, the program is now accessible in its entirety in The Mind’s Ear Archives.

This weekend’s program will be Ernestus Jiminy Chald’s simulated weaponized broadcast, “Infectious Airwaves“.

Imagine, if you will, that your radio is terminally ill.  Now imagine that the terminal illness your radio suffers from is actually contagious, and that, by listening to your radio, your ears have become infected with this incurable malady.  This is the concept behind “Infectious Airwaves”, a program produced by Ernestus Jiminy Chald for Radiophrenia.

“Infectious Airwaves” will make its American airwaves debut on Saturday, December 30th at 9 p.m. (PST) on Free Radio Santa Cruz.  An encore rebroadcast will be presented on Sunday, December 31st at 7 p.m. (PST).  Your ears will never be the same.

THE MIND’S EAR PROGRAM #5 PREMIERES ON SATURDAY, DECEMBER 23RD:

You missed your opportunity to tune in to “Mingle-Mangle” last weekend, didn’t you?  Fret not, friend—you can listen at your leisure in The Mind’s Ear Archives.

This weekend’s program will be a special Christmas edition of The Mind’s Ear entitled “A Stockingful of Coal”.

“A Stockingful of Coal” is the antithesis of every heartwarming Christmas show you’ve heard in the past.  Hopeless and bleak, this program peels back the holiday’s jolly facade like a scab, exposing its festering inner truths and revealing hidden secrets about its dark side.  Featuring an all-star cast of special guests including the legendary Bryan Lewis Saunders and Wayne June, “A Stockingful of Coal” is the Anti-Christmas show you never knew you needed to hear but will certainly never forget.

“A Stockingful of Coal” will air on Saturday, December 23rd at 9 p.m. (PST) and Sunday, December 24th—Christmas Eve—at 7 p.m. (PST) on Free Radio Santa Cruz (101.3 FM).

THE MIND’S EAR PROGRAM #4 PREMIERES ON SATURDAY, DECEMBER 16TH:

Those who failed to tune in to “Repercussus” last weekend can now listen to the program in its entirety in The Mind’s Ear Archives.

This weekend’s program, “Mingle-Mangle“, will premiere on Saturday, December 16th at 9 p.m. (PST) on Free Radio Santa Cruz.  There will be an encore rebroadcast on Sunday, December 17th at 7 p.m. (PST).  Tune in on 101.3 FM in Santa Cruz or dive into the live stream here.

“Mingle-Mangle” is the auditory equivalent of a long-form internet meme.  Using a combination of found sound recordings and original compositions, Ernestus Jiminy Chald followed a rigid set of seemingly arbitrary rules and constraints in the construction of this program, making it almost Oulipian in execution.  At times disturbing, at times hilarious, at times hilariously disturbing, “Mingle-Mangle” is the type of program that leaves you feeling violated, enlightened, and confused, as all great works of art should.

A special message will be presented at the end of this weekend’s broadcasts for those who have purchased their very own Super Secret Mind’s Ear Decorder Ring.

The Mind’s Ear program #3: “Repercussus” will receive it’s premiere broadcast on Saturday, December 9th at 9 p.m. (PST).  There will be an encore rebroadcast on Sunday, December 10 at 7 p.m. (PST) on Free Radio Santa Cruz (101.3 FM).

“Repercussus” is a contemplative program revolving around the theme of reflections—aural reflections, optical reflections, and philosophical reflections.  Voices from the present are absorbed by voices from the past within a protean landscape of murky sound, leaving the listener to reflect upon their own life and the manners in which their past informs their present.
