About Free Radio SAIC

Blurring the lines between traditional live radio and art, Free Radio SAIC showcases uninhibited student programming unlike any you’ve ever heard before…and some you may have. At Free Radio SAIC we encourage all of our DJs to experiment and explore all the possibilities that can come with live radio broadcasting. From live performances to spoken word poetry. From exhibitions to live DJ sets. From Bowie to… oh… let’s say Jonas Brothers.

Here at Free Radio SAIC we are excited about the possibilities of the station. We are currently making huge renovations to the studio, building up the community within the station and very importantly building a stronger image within SAIC and the community at large. All of us at Free Radio love communication, music and celebration, and want to transfer this passion outside of the station one way or another.

With the collaboration of staff, faculty, students and alumni, we have created things such as the 2007 Free Radio Music Festival, a special curated program with Neighborhood Public Radio and the Whitney Biennial, field trips to Chicago Public Radio, as well as relationships with departments and specific classes. We are always open to suggestions from both DJs and listeners on how to improve our station.

So come join us! Be part of the free radio experiment.
