UCSC sophomore Emily entered through the door to KZSC just a week ago. She received a tour, filled out her student volunteer forms, learned how to process music and was on her way as a KZSC volunteer. So far Emily has spent most of her time reviewing new rock and electronic music releases that have poured into the station, compiling twenty volunteer hours in seven days! For this, Emily has been crowned “New Volunteer of the Month”; we hope the title doesn’t have an adverse effect on her upcoming finals. Be sure to listen for Emily as well as 13 other new voices from our “Spring Training For UCSC Student DJs” coming over the airwaves of The Great 88 sometime in April & May.
We’re a little busy at KZSC this weekend. We’ve got a tower project that, when completed, should provide a greater signal for The Great 88. In order to finish the job KZSC will be going off the airwaves during the morning of Saturday March 16th until about 4 pm. We will gradually return to our lush 20,000 watts at 88.1 FM by sometime on Sunday. If you suddenly discover KZSC on your radio for the first time, let us know. And if you happen to find our missing Caterpillar, we’d appreciate it back.
If you can’t find your favorite program on The Great 88 right now, it could be related to the time change. Everyone springs forward an hour Sunday, March 10th. While we’re on the subject, we hope you took the time to make a donation to KZSC during our on-air fundraising drive. If not, you still can make a difference at our website’s DONATE PAGE. No matter the hour, it’s a good time to support community radio.

DJ Prudence displays her artwork, a painting entitled “Glass Onion”. It’s her re-imagining of the classic Lennon song from The White Album. This one-of-a-king piece will be offered today on The Beatles’ “Here, There & Everywhere” program, along with other Fab Four thank you gifts and of course your requests. Thursday mornings without George, Paul, Ringo and John would not be the same…call in during our Pledge Drive, 831-459-2811 or DONATE online to support community radio and this program.
