Weekends & KZSC

KZSC is the Big Dipper of Broadcasting in Santa Cruz. Where else on a weekend can you wake up to trash, twang and rhythm mayhem (“Moon Twist” with Mr. Earl  Saturday mornings at6 AM), find women in jazz (“Jazz Kitty” noon Saturdays), chill to reggae (“Strictly Rockers” Saturday nights at 6:30) or have an opportunity to connect with mind, body and spirit (“Conciliation Sunday” at 6 AM) with a Jewish chaser (“Muzical Jewz” Sundays at 4 pm)? That’s right…nowhere. And there’s so much more:  folk, blues, indie rock, hip hop and the Pacifica/KPFA News from Berkeley weekends at 6 pm. It’s just the way we roll on the weekends at The Great 88.

Find out for yourself-check out our Program Schedule and get ready for Monday.

KZSC.org On, 88.1 FM Off

You can see the problem right here…somewhere. KZSC has turned off our broadcast signal while UC Santa Cruz is doing some electrical work on this box. It’s complicated, so 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 today  ’cause we miss you too!

88.1 FM Goes Dark

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!

Summer Music Sale

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.

Night Owls: A Tote Bag For You

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.

MEGA-Music Sale Saturday

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?
