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.
To produce a second record after the demise of The Beatles, Paul McCartney took wife Linda and a bunch of song demos to New York City. After picking some star sidemen the McCartney’s “Ram” album began to take shape. The final result produced his first #1 hit in America post-Fab Four and before Wings. Hear the story behind the making of “Ram” this Thursday, August 2nd beginning at 6 AM during the “Here, There & Everywhere” program on KZSC.
Don’t let summer get you down. Tune in to The Great 88 for flashbacks, throwbacks and more during our summer quarter program schedule. Tastier than a deep-fried Boardwalk Twinkie, KZSC’s got rock on vinyl from the 60′s, folk & bluegrass tunes, Brazilian music, film scores and tons more music and local talk shows. And since the days are longer, many of your long-standing favorites have expanded timeslots longer than a Jerry Garcia guitar solo.
Take a peek at the outstanding lineup running from June through September on our SCHEDULE page and let us know what you think!
As many die-hard fans of The Great 88 know, we’ve been part of a campus electrical upgrade project for the last several days. Looks like we will be returning to our usual unusual summer program schedule at 4 pm California time today. Thanks for your patience; stay tuned for the fireworks!
Starting June 18th, KZSC begins our longest programming quarter of the year. Tastier than deep-fried Twinkies, our summer program schedule features the premiere of new folk and bluegrass shows, Brazilian music, film scores and more. And since the days are longer, many of your long-standing favorites have expanded timeslots. Take a peek at the outstanding lineup for June-September on our SCHEDULE page and let us know what you think!
It doesn’t seem that long ago that The Great 88 went from being a perky little 10-watt station that you could barely hear even on campus to the 20,000-watt flamethrower we know and love today. Every now and again we need to upgrade our electronics, power supply and whatever else needs attention (yes, we’ve had to shoo lizards out of some gear) at our antenna site at UCSC; this just happens to be the week.
Beginning June 19th KZSC will be OFF THE AIR for maintenance. WE WILL RETURN THURSDAY (June 21st) AT 4 PM to the lowest spot on the FM dial with a new program schedule. In the meantime you can still listen to our WEB STREAM music mix. Thanks in advance for your understanding; we’ll make it up to you for the rest of the summer.
