Here’s a look at a few of the faces behind the new voices you’ll be hearing on The Great 88 starting January 21st. Our fall quarter broadcasting class came up with programming ideas so hot, we had to have them approved by the campus Fire Department. Besides the difference on the air, significant changes will be happening behind the microphone at KZSC in the year to come. More info as it happens appears on our KZSC Newsletter, along with contests for prizes in each edition. Want to know more about the prizes? Want to know more about KZSC?

December is always extra special with The Beatles. It’s the only time of year you’ll hear their unique holiday fan messages recorded between 1963 and 1969. Another KZSC annual tradition: DJ Apple’s countdown the Top 20 most requested Beatles songs during the year on December 20th. The following week we celebrate the 45th anniversary (Boxing Day, Dec. 26, 1967) of the original broadcast of “Magical Mystery Tour” on BBC television with a radio documentary featuring commentary by Sir Paul McCartney. Join our radio holidays with The Beatles in December Thursdays between 6 and 9 A.M. on The Great 88, KZSC.
As we wind our way through the month of December, KZSC will be presenting some special stuff over the airwaves. Yes there will be “seasonal music” but keep an ear out for other surprises too. And in January our program schedule will morph once again, adding new student voices and shows that will start a New Year off on the good foot. Thanks for listening and supporting The Great 88 in 2012; get ready for the new KZSC in 2013!
Celebrating 50 years as a band, The Rolling Stones played an incredible night at London’s O2. Bringing out favorites from five decades, they proved to be still able to rock it. Here’s a sample: an extended version of “Midnight Rambler” featuring former 70′s Stones lead guitarist Mick Taylor.
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.
Have you ever wondered what kind of spider that is in your bedroom window? Is it a wolf spider? Is it a black widow? (If you responded yes to the last question, kill the spider immediately. Please.) No matter what species of spider encroaches on your personal space, you have to admit–it’s nice having him around. His name might be Henry. He might be a bulbous orb weaver (Google images of “orb weaver,” I dare you). A few things about Henry are definite. He’s there every evening when you get home from a long day of work. He always says the right things. He knows you pretty well–that you try to match your underwear to your socks but the blues are a little bit off, that you watch Big Bang Theory very late at night. Your spider hates you for that, by the way; one of his eight tiny legs face palms his tiny face. But he’ll never judge you. He’ll watch you and lure you in with his exotic ways and love you from afar until you love him back. Kind of like KZSC. Both Henry and KZSC are delightfully predictable, even when you’re Facebook stalking Marty O’Reilly (http://martyoreilly.com/): they can always be found on the web.
