Passing of the Horn

Happy Friday.

A great thanks to all of our promoters for providing premiums for our pledge drive a couple of weeks ago . Our listeners thoroughly enjoy all of the new material, as well as their new gifts from our pledge drive.

I would also like to introduce myself as Jared “J Cat” Cattanach, I have been interning under Nicholas for the past year, and I will be the new Jazz Director here at KZSC starting now. I look forward to working with our wonderful promoters and artists in the near future. Please remember to change your mail labels accordingly.

What would you like to hear more of Santa Cruz?

Cheers.

Meet Emily, KZSC’s New Volunteer of the Month

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.

Tower Project

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.

Do You Have The Time?

imagesIf 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.

Climbing Up Pledge Drive Mountain

Our intrepid mountaineer Hanz Over Di Money is heading slowly towards the top, climbing one famous peak after another. Watch his progress on our Facebook Page,  Instagram App or click on the little camera icon on our homepage. Call KZSC at 831-459-4036 or DONATE ON-LINE with a credit card. Every pledge helps Hanz catch his breath and take another step upward to the top of Pledge Drive Mountain.
