Alexandra Starlight and Zachary James of Alexandra & the Starlight Band stopped by the station to do an interview with our own DJ Soul Patch during his program Not-so-distant Relatives which airs every Thursday from 2pm-4pm. Listen for Alexandra’s rocking acoustic jam! Although the KZSC talk department is fairly new on the scene, KZSC has a long tradition of getting awesome artists, writers, musicians and other talented people on the air. We want to keep that tradition alive by getting more exposure for some of these great interviews you may have missed, and some that are coming up in the near future! Stay tuned to KZSC and kzsc.org

Brooklyn trio Hospitality recently released their Sophomore LP, Trouble, on Merge. They have been supporting the album with a nation-wide tour and are about to go overseas starting in May. I was lucky enough to catch up with Amber Papini (guitar, vocals) and Brian Betancourt (bass) before their show at Rickshaw Stop in San Francisco last February. In our interview, we cover influences for their new darker sound, what they’ve been listening to lately, and upcoming releases for the band. Friends of the band, Airwaves, opened as well as Matt Kivel, who you can hear sound-checking in the background.
