Our feathered friend is calling KZSC. They always play her Counting Crows and Byrds requests; now it’s time to return the favor. Pretty Polly is right. If you tune in for local talk and music shows on The Great 88, we trust you’ll fly to your phone during our Fall On-Air Fundraiser and donate too. Starting Monday, October 22nd, we’ll be interrupting our regular programming to remind everyone that community radio cannot survive without financial support from those who listen. And we will try to keep the squawking to a minimum. Don’t have a trained bird handy to make your call? Move your mouse to our DONATE PAGE.
Meet DJ Syd the Kid, host of our new “Blue Moon Boulevard” show. Syd’s a UCSC senior who spent last year studying in Berlin, Germany. Besides being fond of Franz Kafka (her major is Literature), Syd really digs big band swing music. She reminds us that Kafka once said, “Anyone who keeps the ability to see beauty never grows old”. Find out more between 9 AM and noon every Monday during her beautiful big band music program on The Great 88, KZSC and stay young.
KZSC can sometimes perform magic. We needed to do some extensive electrical work at our tower site today and, expecting the worst, we thought it would be heavy lifting until dark. Our crack engineering staff (Thank You Don Mussell!) made short work of the project, so we are back live on the air as of noon October 20th.
Thanks for your understanding; now you know why we have pledge drives.
Just in time for Halloween, KZSC has carved out a fall program schedule. New shows that are scary good; old shows still hanging around as a treat. No tricks; just great, hand-made radio broadcasts home grown at UC Santa Cruz on The Great 88. Check our Program/Schedule page to peek at the week ahead or just tune in for surprises on The Great 88 every day.
Just like the swallows in Capistrano, the Slugs are making their slow, seasonal return to Santa Cruz. If your business would like to welcome back UCSC students, why not get the word out over our airwaves? KZSC Sponsorship Packages are available in many sizes; you can even order some mini-packages online. Find more info about how your business can partner with The Great 88 on our Sponsor Page and Welcome Back Slugs!
Besides wolfing down the pretzels, bratwurst and beverages, KZSC celebrates the month of October as only we can-by changing our program schedule. Gone are the long summer days, the hours at the beach and sand fleas. Now come the early evenings, long pants and lederhosen plus new programs hosted by UCSC students. Yes, many of your old favorites will still pour out of the radio as well. To find out more, keep an eye on our website and an ear to The Great 88 as we toast our new Fall Program Schedule beginning Monday, October 8th. Cheers!
