Everyone springs forward an hour Sunday, March 10th. And while we’re looking ahead, don’t forget St. Patrick’s Day is March 17th, National Frozen Food Day is March 6th and the KZSC On-Air Pledge Drive begins Saturday, March 2nd. The Great 88 remains great with support from our listeners. Did we mention National Panic Day is March 9th? Scratch that off your calendar by calling in a donation to KZSC at 831-459-4733 or at our website’s DONATE PAGE. No matter the hour, it’s time to support community radio!
To help celebrate another year of broadcasting radio from the UC Santa Cruz campus, here’s a fine mini-documentary on The Great 88. Directed and produced by UCSC alum Marc Atkinson, it’s a pretty good snapshot of the staff and philosophy of KZSC. SEE IT HERE.

KZSC was having some pesky problems with our Main webstream signal, the one that sends you a live signal of our broadcasts. We’ve got it fixed. Thanks for caring webstream fans! Continue your enjoyment of The Great 88.
Here’s a look at a few of the faces behind the new voices you’ll be hearing on The Great 88 starting January 21st. Our fall quarter broadcasting class came up with programming ideas so hot, we had to have them approved by the campus Fire Department. Besides the difference on the air, significant changes will be happening behind the microphone at KZSC in the year to come. More info as it happens appears on our KZSC Newsletter, along with contests for prizes in each edition. Want to know more about the prizes? Want to know more about KZSC?

Back by popular demand and just in time for the cold, harsh, lonely winter months, KZSC’s 2nd edition of Anonymous Caller is now accepting submissions. The theme for this issue is graffiti-you’ve-spotted-around-that-looks-cool. That means photos of bathroom graffiti, wall graffiti, sweet doodles and tags. Tags your grandma throws up, really bad tags, really good tags…you get the idea. Of course all other musical content will be warmly welcomed. Want to print an interview with your neighbor’s sad dad-rock band? Send it in! Wanna tell the world what you really think about Tame Impala? Jot it down! Have a muffin recipe to share (that may or may not include impalas)? You know what to do. Send your submissions to: firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline to submit is Friday, January 18th.
As we wind our way through the month of December, KZSC will be presenting some special stuff over the airwaves. Yes there will be “seasonal music” but keep an ear out for other surprises too. And in January our program schedule will morph once again, adding new student voices and shows that will start a New Year off on the good foot. Thanks for listening and supporting The Great 88 in 2012; get ready for the new KZSC in 2013!
