Fixed!

KZSC can sometimes perform magic. We needed to do some extensive electrical work at our tower site today and, expecting the worst, we thought it would be heavy lifting until dark. Our crack engineering staff (Thank You Don Mussell!) made short work of the project, so we are back live on the air as of noon October 20th.

Thanks for your understanding; now you know why we have pledge drives.

2011 KZSC Music Sale

Date Set For Fall Music Sale

Start saving your lunch money and mark Saturday, November 17th as the date for KZSC’s Annual Ultimate Music Sale. Thousands of LPs, CDs, 45 RPM records and assorted music memorabilia items will be available from dozens of different vendors. And by popular demand, KZSC brings back our 25-cent music table. You read correct: CDs and LPs for just a quarter each. Come early for best selection. Doors open at 10 AM.

Interested in table space to sell? Email Charlie at cdsale@kzsc.org for details. Music sale updates and more info will be posted on Twitter, Facebook and right here. Take a peek at the frenzy from 2009 below:

PSA

Reminder on PSA Guidelines

As KZSC’s Public Service Announcement Director I receive piles of emails every day. Just like tofu, the easier your submission is to digest, the faster you’ll hear it on the air. Here are some of the basic points when sending notices:

General newsletters about your organization more often than not just get deleted. Since we want to represent you/your org in the best way possible, a specific announcement or event is much more likely to receive attention. Announcements can’t contain price information. Instead of including prices, please add some contact information you won’t mind sharing with the public. This way people can find out pricing, driving directions, etc. directly from you. What we refer to as “calls to action” – phrases like, “come on down!” or “get it while it’s hot!” (even if it is hot) will not be included in your PSA. And last but most obvious, the sooner you send your announcement, the more air time it could get! If you submit t a PSA less than two weeks before your event, it may not even be broadcast at all. What did mom always say about planning ahead? I love helping spread the word about the wide range of  events and activities in our community, so help me help you make your announcement stand out. If you have any questions, email me at: psa@kzsc.org.
