About Free Radio SAIC

Free Radio SAIC is the student-run Internet radio station of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC). Producers develop shows according to their interests. Examples include: curated mixes, traditional and experimental sound art, narratives, informative or news-oriented talk shows, interviews and live performances. Station membership is open to any SAIC student, faculty, staff or alumni. It is our goal to encourage the SAIC community to play and expand upon traditional broadcast and to produce original radio experiences.

We host virtual and IRL events such as the annual OpenAir(Waves) mix of submitted student, faculty, and staff audio work, and the legendary Silent Disco party in the spring semester. We offer training on audio and DJ equipment and software as well as a community of friendly faces.

This semester we are expanding our online and remote resources and events! Check back for more detailed information about workshops, trainings, online events, etc.

So come join us! Be part of the Free Radio experiment.
