Hibernation is an extended period of deep sleep, or torpor, that allows animals to survive winter extremes. KZSC is adopting this strategy as we make way for a New Year; in fact we’ve already starting gaining a few pounds…but that’s another story. Our transmitter tower site needs work, so to accommodate a crane coming in and the job list, KZSC will be “hibernating” starting Friday, December 20th at 4 pm. We will remain off the airwaves at 88.1 FM until Thursday, January 2nd but our webstream, kzsc.org, will remain running during this time. Sorry for the extended absence but we’re already dreaming up cool stuff for 2014. Please check back and hear for yourself!

KZSC’s roadside Pledge Drive Store opened in October. We stuffed it with music and DVDs, right next to our KZSC Brand Factory Outlet. Our landlord tells us we have to move along and make way for the plastic Santa display and a bunch of holiday stuff. Before they boot us out, we suggest you look at the cool stuff available for yourself or others. BONUS: all funds from purchases and donations go toward The Great 88′s operating costs for the next six months. Check out the DONATE page today.
