The guitar playing half of The Glimmer Twins turns 68 on December 18th; KZSC will be paying tribute on “Triple Decker Tuesday” December 20th with a special devoted to the reissue of the Stones’ “Some Girls” recording and your requests. Most of us only turn 68 once…Keith may be an exception. The Keith Richards birthday party begins over the airwaves starting Tuesday at 6 AM on KZSC’ you’re invited.
One benefit of taking on the position of Class Instructor at KZSC is personally knowing the people who will be the future of KZSC radio DJs, and now that all of their final grades have been finished, I have to say that I am confident about this bunch’s upcoming contributions to the air waves for Winter Quarter! As a sneak preview, we have DJs who are enthusiastic about hip hop, jazz, shoegaze, and much much more. Be sure to tune into the Great 88 this coming winter to hear their fresh new shows!
Santa Cruz Superior Court Judge Jeff Almquist is on the show followed by Patricia Zavella, UCSC professor of Latin American & Latino Studies, who talks about her new book, I’m Neither Here nor There.

If you’re a web stream listener to The Great 88, you’ll notice that the Main Stream [the one that broadcasts what happening live at 88.1 FM] is not working this weekend. It’s not because Santa found out you were naughty and left you a chunk; the Elves at The Great 88 are making some changes. However the Main Stream’s Semi-Twin the Side Stream which features an interesting mix of sound – anything from Christmas music to Beatles, reggae, indie rock, James Brown, bluegrass or even North American bird calls – is working just fine.
Check out our Second Stream by clicking the triangle just below NOW PLAYING on the KZSC homepage then put the Main Stream on “pause” and click “play” on the Side Stream. More info about selecting the best audio for your system and access to the Great 88 Podcast vault can be found here. We’ll have the Main Stream up and running again on Monday; thanks for your patience.
