KZSC’s connection to Star Trek goes back to our inception. One of our founding fathers, Marc Okrand, went on to greater fame as the creator of the Klingon language. But I digress. As the picture indicates, we are “all ears” this year at KZSC. We’ve started a series of listener surveys by asking about the KPFA morning news broadcasts. Later this year we will unveil our on-line listener survey and will be sending out surveys to current and past subscribers. We also hope to “go on the road” with a series of community meetings to talk directly with listeners in a variety of towns and cities within our broadcast area. In other words, your opinion means a lot to us. We hope to hear from you soon. You can contact us regarding programming anytime at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Is your old cell phone toast? If you’ve been thinking about getting a new iPhone or other iThingy, you’ll be happy to know that there’s a KZSC application available for you. It’s quick to add, easy to use and it’s FREE.
The KZSC application is compatable with iPads, iPod Touch and iPhones. Check out the KZSC iProduct application here.
“Mom, Dad, guess what? I won a car at KZSC!” Imagine the excitement. Some lucky UC Santa Cruz student will be given the keys to a 1998 Pontiac Grand Am at the next KZSC general meeting. The drawing is for UCSC students only; you must be present to win. The car is courtesy of “University Grapevine” host Bruce Bratton and will be given away Thursday June 3rd at 6 pm. Come visit KZSC and good luck!
A special thank you goes out to all of you that helped us in our Spring pledge drive. We raised over $21,000 in one week, all thanks to our special listeners who recognized the importance of supporting local, original programing. Our viewpoints and our musical tastes will continue to be broadcast through our beloved radio medium thanks to you guys. No seriously, thanks.
If you didn’t get a chance to donate last week, but love us very much, you can make a pledge anytime by telephone or at our KZSC shop. Thanks for listening and thanks for supporting your little log cabin in the woods: KZSC.
KZSC’s “Wiki Wiki Wednesday” host Lani B. is pictured here with Ian McRae of Hula’s Restaurant in Santa Cruz. Lani is holding a large check donated to The Great 88 as part of Hula’s ongoing “Mahalo Mondays” promotion; their way of giving back to nonprofits in Santa Cruz County that make a difference. To learn more about “Mahalo Mondays”, check their website. KZSC thanks Hula’s and all our listeners who ate, drank and participated in this fundraiser.
Here at KZSC, we’re all about the beauty of impermanence. And by beauty, we mean beauty.
Tomorrow is the official start of our new Summer Schedule. Plenty of your old favorites will be sticking around for the sunny months, but a few are out on vacation. To fill their place, we’ve got an arsenal of interesting shows to keep you entertained. Here are a few of the highlights.
First up, the much celebrated Stories Often Told is back for one last hurrah. This classic program features a new theme each week with dozens of great songs that go along with it. It airs Wednesday from 9-10:30am.
We have two tribute shows, one for the Smiths (Louder than Bombs Wed at 10:30am) and one for Bob Dylan (4th Time Around Sat at 3pm). A new Native American music show kicks off on Tuesday at 2pm called America: Old School.
And last there are my shows! (please excuse the promotion) Mondays at 1:30pm check out The Extra Special Eastern European Exercise Elixir Show!
There are lots of gems hiding in our new schedule, so we suggest you take a look at our schedule and go exploring. Have a favorite? Email email@example.com to let them know who your new favorite programer is!
