Our latest batch of postcards received at The Great 88 from our listeners included one from a “Kiss/KZSC Army Member”, nice alohas from Iris & Duane on Maui, JR on O’ahu plus a typical New York salute added to a “Greetings from Avenue A” postcard from a traveler in Manhattan. But the big apple of the bunch has to be this one from Istanbul. If your summer plans call for travel anywhere between Los Gatos and the Galapagos Islands, don’t forget to take your favorite station along by using our website or Smart Phone App. And before you sail off the edge of the planet, please mail us a postcard. We’ll share your card and comments with our staff & others on our website. Mail your postcards to:

Porter College student Annais Rittenberg joined The Great 88 as program host of “Cajun Spice”, a program devoted to the sounds of New Orleans back in 2010. Her passion for music from other cultures quickly led to serving a term as KZSC’s World Music Director and hosting another show “Global Grooves”. She was a bright spirit with lots to offer new volunteers when they came to the station. Annais passed away July 3rd while working as a children’s summer camp counselor. It’s a great loss to our staff and our listening audience. Our thoughts are with her family and friends.

This Friday KZSC will have its plug pulled. As part of a larger electrical project, UC Santa Cruz needs to temporarily cut power to our little cabin in the woods. That means zero webstream signal and a blank spot at 88.1 FM for a while…but not too long. We will go dark (literally) at noon on Friday, June 21st and expect to be back bothering the world again sometime around 6 pm Friday night.
KZSC’s Business Manager is a student position. And like the tides at our world famous surf breaks, they come and go. Goodbye to Kevin Candelar1a, the 2012-13 Business Manager who graduates in June. Kevin was also voted “Most Likely To Survive A Recession” by his Governing Board peers. And say hello to Amanda – KZSC’s newly appointed Business Manager for the upcoming academic year. Her talents are too numerous to mention but let’s just say she’s the one that will make sure your donation gets processed and “the checks in the mail” for our outstanding bills. You can hear Amanda each week on her program “Power Through Procrastination” on The Great 88.
