Although it’s true all year, everyone at KZSC would like to extend our special thanks to you during this season for listening and supporting our station. Hundreds of volunteers put in an uncountable amount of hours creating what you hear through your speakers; we couldn’t fit them all in this photo but if you click on the picture, you’ll see a few of your favorite program hosts squeezed into our station lobby. It’s good to know that from time to time The Great 88 can entertain and inform you. 2013 and the years ahead will be exciting times of change. It is our hope that KZSC will continue to grow and change as well. Stay tuned!
We’ve all been told not to judge a book by its cover, but what about albums? Imagine walking in to your local record store, pumped to flip through bins and let your eyes scan over the endless possibilities for a new find. How many times has an album jumped out at you, not because of the name of the band, but because of the image plastered on its cover? Covers communicate an album’s first impression upon its viewers, hoping that by catching your eye it will tempt your ears into listening to the artist’s work. This year, there has been a flood of great music entering our station at KZSC, and I can’t help but get excited when I see the freshly printed covers. It was hard to pick a few favorites, and I’d love to hear from you about the albums you find to be the prettiest albums of 2012. Comment away, this list is hardly exhaustive!
Celebrating 45 years of waking people up in Santa Cruz, the new KZSC “45” shirt features two battling bantams on the front. If the front celebrates our past, the back acknowledges the future with our URL in a dark, rooster red. You can sport your own Radio Rooster and be a community radio booster. Find out how at our KZSC WEB STORE.
When is the right time to donate to The Great 88? How about sometime before the Zombie Apocalypse. As scary as it might seem, we still need to raise a little more money to end our Fall Fundraiser. If you didn’t get a chance to use the phone during our on-air drive, it’s not too late now to call us at 831-459-4036 and give to KZSC. Please don’t make us send out the zombies. Again.
Afraid of using the phone? DONATE TO KZSC ON-LINE.
If you haven’t been to one of these before and you LOVE music, plan to join the crowd Saturday, November 17th for KZSC’s Annual Ultimate Music Sale. Thousands of CDs & LPs will be available for purchase from bunches of independent vendors in one big room. How big? It’s formally the dining hall at UCSC’s Merrill College. And, as always, KZSC will have its own special 25-cent table. That’s right: CDs or LPs for just a quarter (or four for a dollar). No doubt there’s something for any music hound no matter what your tastes are. P.S. -this is a fun fundraiser for KZSC. Doors open Saturday, November 17th at 10 AM. Get here early for best selection.
Everyone at The Great 88 is crowing about the Fall On-Air Fundraiser. As you can see, we’re heading to the finish line with our beaks held high.

Make a donation to support KZSC at 831-459-4036 or on our DONATE page and get one for your favorite rooster.
