Welcome to Open Your Mind Radio
Open Your Mind Radio was setup to discuss all matters relating to the what we preceive as reality or tru-ality! We will cover most, if not all, topics regarding this subject matter and hope to build up a vast knowledge of information to help people understand and make them aware of things going on nationally, internationally and across the world. We aim to have interviews with guest speakers and add some humour and satire into the show as some of the things that we will discuss will be just plain laughable.
Open Your Mind Radio broadcasts live every Sunday from 7pm to 9pm GMT+1 (BST). To communication with us on the live show, you can log in to our chat facility and talk with other listeners, chat with us or ask our guest questions. You can also call us on 00353 (0) 46 927 1212. If you would like to contact us outside show hours, you can call and leave a message on our answer machine and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
Open Your Mind Radio Now On Patreon
As mentioned on the show, Alan and Steve had a talk about the future of OYM Radio during the week. We are coming up to 8 and half years being on air and although we would like to keep things going, for financial reasons Alan needs to get out working to pay some bills. If this happens, then he won’t have the time to dedicate to OYM and the projects. Now, regular listeners know that Steve works full time doing the 9 to 5 and has a bigger family than me, so his time is very limited. As Alan is not working full time, he can dedicate more time to OYM and at the moment, it’s like a full time job. People might only hear a 2 hour show on Sunday but there is a lot of work that goes on in the background and communicating with listeners, guests, project work etc.
One of the listeners on the chat room last week suggested that we setup a Patreon page where people can support us on a monthly basis, like thomas has done with THI.
So we have two options – finish OYM at the end of the year and maybe do the odd show now and again if time allows or launch a Patreon page and see if OYM can get the support from our listeners to fund a full time role for me.
Now there are only two live alt radio shows in Ireland at the moment that we know of (Mik unfortunately is now podcasting but we are going to help Mik get up and running with his own live radio station) which we are happy to do.
So, obviously we would love to continue with OYM but bills have to be paid and food has to be put on the table! So, what we have decided to do is to launch a patreon page where people can choose to donate from $5 Dollars a month going up to $15 Dollars a month (less Patreon’s commission which is apparently 11% and the currency transfer to Euros plus Paypals fee) which has to be taken into account.
Remember Thomas’s initial though about how we can solve the problem was very easy, €1 Euro a month donated by 100,000 people would be able to help so many people. Well, we are not looking for 100,000 people to support OYM obviously, just enough to pay the bills etc. $5 Dollars works out to be €4.40 Euros, the price of a coffee!
Check out our Patreon page and if you can afford $5 Dollars a month to keep the lights on at OYM Radio, it would be very much appreciated. To let people know how much we have raised, we have installed a Patreon donations thermometer on the left hand side of the website to keep people posted on how we are doing.
Now Patreon will only be required until the trust funds are released from the foundation then we will be funded by the trust.
a BIG thank you to the listeners who have already offered to donate to OYM.
The Original Open Your Mind Website from 2005
Over the years, people have asked Alan and Steve how Open your Mind came about, so we have put togther an E-Book of the original website that Alan designed while living and working in London. Alan's awakening happened in 2001 and after a few years of researching, he decided to setup a website called Open Your Mind. This site actually approached the subject matter from a psychological point of view rather than the standard approach which went into details about the New World Order and the Illuminati.
When Alan moved back from London, the universe organised that he would meet Steve and after a short period of time getting to know each other and finding out that they had similar interests in the alternative media, they both decided, from a moral conscience point of view, that they would setup a radio station and call it "Open Your Mind Radio" and the rest, as they say, is history!
