Friday, September 20th is going to be a dark day at 88.1 FM. One day after this month’s full moon, KZSC will be turning off our broadcast signal starting at 7 AM. UC Santa Cruz is doing some electrical work at our tower site and so we don’t cook someone like a Thanksgiving turkey, we’ll be off until around 2 PM. Webstream listeners: you’ll still have The Great 88 as company during the outage. Thanks for missing us; we’ll return to the airwaves as fast as we can September 20th ’cause we miss you too!
Verve Coffee and KZSC would like to thank everyone who came to our Summer Music Sale. Perfect weather, a great live set performed by Bleu, stimulating hot & cold beverages and tons of sale-priced music made it a memorable weekend event. If you were there take a peek at our Instagram photos & videos; you just might see yourself or a friend having fun. Our next event will be in November, our even bigger annual Ultimate Music Sale on the UCSC campus. More info to come this fall.
Whether it’s day or night, it’s always a good time to have a tote bag handy. The Night Owl bag from The Great 88 is rugged canvas with a flat bottom so your LPs or groceries won’t flop over. We tested it at our Summer Music Sale; a little more than 50 albums will fit nicely. Check out the design on the other side and order one today on our MERCH PAGE.
How many times have you wanted to stroll through a record store with a cup of coffee in hand, only to see a “No Beverages Inside” sign? Totally unfair…and not a problem this Saturday during KZSC and Verve Coffee’s Summer Music Sale, where you are encouraged to have your favorite hot drink while checking out both new and used LPs & CDs galore. Once you start going through the thousands of selections from Streetlight Records, MetaVinyl, BlueBeat Music and others, you may even want a second cup. Also on hand: live music by Bleu plus the infamous KZSC 25-Cent Booth featuring all styles of music for just a quarter. And since this is happening in the Verve parking lot, there’s plenty of coffee and goodies available too. The KZSC/Verve Coffee Summer Music Sale takes place Saturday, August 31st from 10 AM till 3 PM at Verve Coffee, 104 Bronson Street (just a block off Seabright near Dave’s Market). The event is free; get there early for best selection. CLICK HERE FOR DIRECTIONS. More info? Call 831-332-5549.
If you’re planning on replacing what Fido drooled on with a new smart phone or you’re traveling with an iPad this summer, we’ve got great news. You can still keep up with what’s happening at The Great 88 with KZSC’s phone & tablet apps. They’re easy to use, sound great and best of all they are FREE, leaving a little more money for doggie yummies. Check out our free smart phone, iPad applications and other options on our LISTEN PAGE.
