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.”
KZSC was having some pesky problems with our Main webstream signal, the one that sends you a live signal of our broadcasts. We’ve got it fixed. Thanks for caring webstream fans! Continue your enjoyment of The Great 88.

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?
