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.

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. Together we can reach the top by this weekend. Go Hanz Go!
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.
Broadcasting music from the UC Santa Cruz campus started back in 1967. As you can see from the picture, we faced some pretty stiff competition back then. Technology has marched on in the last four decades but The Great 88 remains a resource for local talk and fine music. KZSC asks that if you have a push button set on your car radio for 88.1 FM, a bookmark for kzsc.org or if you’re exploring our programming for the first time that you consider making a donation to keep us going.
KZSC is sponsored by listeners; you can help by calling in now during our ON-AIR FUNDRAISER at 831-459-4036 or by Giving Now. Buckle up and stay tuned for the fun we put into fundraising for The Great 88!
