Mention “Sex, Dope & Cheap Thrills” to people and you’ll be surprised where the conversation goes. The name for their weekly show is based on the original title of Big Brother and the Holding Company’s first Columbia Records album – not received well by label executives in 1968. In the spirit of the late 60′s and early 70′s, the “Cheap Thrills” staff plays strictly vinyl from The Great 88′s extensive music archives. Turn on your radio (or computer), tune in Wednesdays from 9 AM till noon and drop a line to these valentines at The Great 88. If you dig the San Francisco sound, you’ll love “Sex, Dope & Cheap Thrills.”
From left to right it’s Madeline, Luisa, Lani, Betsy and Carol. Known collectively as “Breakfast in Bed”, it has been recognized as the longest-running women’s music program on radio. They prefer to say their show, “features music by women for everyone”. Need a lift on the weekend? Check out “Breakfast in Bed” with a this bunch every Sunday morning at 9 on KZSC.
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.
Our Program Review Committee wanted to make sure you knew about our weekend program “Musical Jews”. DJ Oy Dog (aka Dylan Music, on the left, with guest Rebecca Stark) has been spinning songs by Jewish artists since he a was a UCSC student many years ago. Hard to imagine Henny Youngman next to Matisyau? Think Yiddish with a twist. Tune in Sundays at 4 pm to find out more on KZSC.
