THE MIND’S EAR PROGRAM #33 PREMIERES ON SATURDAY, OCTOBER 13TH:

On November 18th, 1978, 918 people perished in Guyana in what has come to be known as the Jonestown Tragedy.  The vast majority of those who perished were American citizens, and the Jonestown Tragedy remained the greatest loss of American life in a single deliberate act until the terrorist attacks that occurred on September 11th, 2001.  “Regret this very Day” is a multi-part, nonlinear experimental radio documentary about the Peoples Temple and its charismatic founder Jim Jones produced by Ernestus Jiminy Chald.  Unlike more traditional documentaries, “Regret this very Day” has no narrator or explanatory notes to fill the listener in on the particularities of what occurred within the Peoples Temple.  Instead, Ernestus Jiminy Chald laboriously examined hundreds of hours of recorded tapes left behind by the Peoples Temple and selected material from these tapes to give the listener a glimpse into the world that Jim Jones and his followers inhabited.

People often wonder how this sort of event could have happened.  Why would nearly 1,000 people become so devoted to a single man and his revolutionary cause that they would literally give up their lives for him when ordered to do so?  To many, such a notion seems absurd and unfathomable.  But when one listens to these tapes and considers the circumstances surrounding what happened in Jonestown on that fateful day and the events that led up to it, a portrait begins to emerge of a community that simply wanted to create a better world for their children than the racist, hateful world that American society offered them, and of the captivating leader who promised to create that world for them.

Tune in to the world premiere of “Regret This Very Day: Volume I” on Saturday, October 13th at 9 p.m. (PST) on Free Radio Santa Cruz (101.3 FM).  An encore rebroadcast will be presented on Sunday, October 14th at 7 p.m. (PST).

THE MIND’S EAR PROGRAM #30 PREMIERES ON SATURDAY, AUGUST 11TH:

This weekend on The Mind’s Ear: Ernestus Jiminy Chald’s auricular gift to fungiculturalists and mycologists around the world, “Music to Grow Mushrooms to”.

“Music to Grow Mushrooms to” is the culmination of countless hours of rigorous research and experimentation involving the listening habits of mycelium.  After making the discovery that his mushrooms grow exponentially when they are given constant exposure to music, Chald began experimenting with different types of musical rhythms, harmonic progressions, infrasonic frequencies, and timbres in an attempt to develop the ideal playlist for his mushrooms to grow to.  “Music to Grow Mushrooms to” is the apotheosis of Chald’s experimentation in the creation of music for mycelium.

Mushrooms exposed to these recordings under controlled conditions from the moment of inoculation have been documented as growing, on average, 30% faster than mushrooms growing in silence.  Although humans can also listen to–and possibly derive some enjoyment from–the mycelial music featured in these recordings, they are intended to be listened to by mushrooms.  For optimal results, it is recommended that you play these recordings on a continuous loop at relatively low volume during all stages of your mushrooms’ growth–from inoculation to harvest. This music is equally beneficial to all species of mushrooms, and further research is currently being conducted into its effects on other fungal fruiting bodies.

Tune in to the premiere of “Music to Grow Mushrooms to” on Saturday, August 11th at 9 p.m. (PST) on Free Radio Santa Cruz (101.3 FM).  There will be an encore rebroadcast on Sunday, August 12th at 7 p.m. (PST).

THE MIND’S EAR PROGRAM #26 PREMIERES ON SATURDAY, JULY 14TH:

Back in February, Chald premiered an entire radio program aired in reverse entitled “About Face”.  Many listeners were perplexed by this, with some even emailing us under the assumption that “About Face” was run backwards by mistake.  This was, obviously, not the case, as the program was intended to be listened to backwards.  After receiving so many questions about this program, Chald decided he would air it again, only this time he has reversed the reversed program, so that listeners can now hear this backwards broadcast forwards for the first time ever.

You can tune in to the world premiere of “Bent Over Backwards” tomorrow night–Saturday, July 14th–at 9 p.m. (PST) on Free Radio Santa Cruz.  There will be an encore rebroadcast of “Bent Over Backwards” on Sunday, July 15th at 7 p.m. (PST) on Free Radio Santa Cruz.

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.

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.

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).

“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.

“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.
