WZRD is a 100-watt, non-commercial FM, freeform radio station, operating from Northeastern Illinois University in Chicago. Our assigned frequency is 88.3 MHz. We are dedicated to loudening up a quiet corner of Chicago’s northwest side, and serving the greater community.

To find us, simply go to 0°,  -87° 43’ 7.00” and turn north. Continue until you hear trip hop immediately followed by folk music.

Our cozy nook is snugly nestled between parking lots and flanked by a creepy graveyard and the remains of the old Tuberculosis quarantine facility. How charming!


Tune in to Chicago's unique freeform radio station at 88.3FM on your radio dial, on the Tune In App, or simply click on the Live Stream to hear WZRD from anywhere.
