The Maya were right. The culture that invented drainage systems, numeric calendars and perfected chocolate are getting a lot of attention these days for their 2012 predictions (or lack thereof). One thing they nailed for sure – a great new program schedule on KZSC. How they knew is still a mystery; what you’ll find on The Great 88 does not. To find out more about the changes in our programming, check out our Schedule/Playlist page. We hope you enjoy it as much as they did.
World-renowned poet, writer and activist Nikki Giovanni will be the keynote speaker at this year’s Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Convocation. Still committed to the struggle for civil rights and equality today, her talk will cover “The Privilege of Serving: Art and the Legacy of Martin Luther King Jr”. The event takes place Thursday, February 2nd at the Santa Cruz Civic Auditorium. It’s free and open to the public with doors opening at 6:30 pm. If you can’t make it there in person you can hear exclusive live coverage of UCSC’s 28th Annual Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Convocation on KZSC beginning at 7 pm.
Long before we became KZSC, students were broadcasting at UC Santa Cruz. In 1967 these pirates boarded the airwaves as KRUZ from the basement of Stevenson Dorm 2. It didn’t take long for both the FCC and UCSC administrators to realize there was “a problem”, but the broadcast seed was planted. Forty-five years later, KZSC kicks out a legal 20,000 watts throughout the Central Coast of California and around the world on the web.
We’re looking for ways to commemorate our past and present during 2012. If you have artwork, DJ memories or old tapes of the early days of KRUZ or KZSC, we’d love to hear from you.
2012 is the Chinese New Year of the Dragon. In Eastern philosophy, the Dragon is said to be a free spirit of the zodiac, a deliverer of good fortune with restrictions blowing out the creative spark that is always ready to flame into life. Sounds a lot like The Great 88. This month KZSC will be showing off our new program schedule for 2012, and we think it’s going to be hot. Watch our website for more news; the new schedule begins Monday, January 23rd.
