Dag Weiser Painting For KZSC’s Top Donor

Local artist Dag Weiser has donated this amazing painting for KZSC to give to its top donor in the Spring Pledge Drive! The drive wraps up on Thursday April 30th.

Your generous donation during the drive bring you live, local radio all year long. But if you can beat $1000 (thanks Steve!), then you can have this one-of-a-kind Thank You Gift. We can even deliver it–in the Monterey Bay and San Francisco Bay area.

The “Two Henrys” painting is designed in such a way that–depending on your viewing angle–you see either local literary legend Henry Miller, or you see punk rock legend and TV host Henry Rollins. The piece hung at The Rio Theatre and is signed by Henry Rollins! The dimensions are 45 inches tall by 32 inches wide.

You can view more of Dag’s art at cardboardart.org

Groundation

Groundation’s Harrison Stafford interviewed by DJ Tiffany

He lays down a history and culture of reggae music and discusses his documentary called “Holding on to Jah.” He also talks about Groundation and their upcoming new album and concert in Santa Cruz on Friday Aug 29th at the Catalyst, with J Boog.

Programmer of the Month: Henry Bertheaud (Roux)

August’s Programmer of the Month, Henry Bertheaud, is bringing back talk radio to KZSC!

Henry began his career as a programmer at KZSC this past spring on the classical music program, “Machauts Circus.”  An incoming sophomore at UCSC, Henry is spending his summer hosting Sunday mornings’ “If It Ain’t Baroque…” in addition to Thursday evening’s “Geek Folk” collective. To conclude his hat trick, “Roux” interviews literary artists on the wicked collective talk program, “Happy Beyond Words” on Thursday nights.

Henry has also earned himself a seat on KZSC’s Governing Board as Talk and News Director. We are ecstatic to have “Roux” on our team, so be sure to tune into the Great 88 and check him out! Congratulations, Henry, on being August’s Programmer of the Month!

KZSC music tote bag

Summer music sale, Sat Aug 30

Everybody had such a good time at our first Summer Music Sale, we can hardly wait to do it again. It’s almost time! We’ll see you at Verve on Saturday August 30th. An expanded set of vendors, mild summer weather, and all the great memories from last year mean that we expect even more of our friends will come out this time. Save the date. We’ll bring KZSC coffee mugs to hold your favorite beverage from Verve, and record tote bags to haul off all the great music you’ll find.

Shay

Programmer of the Month: Shay Stoklos (DJ Lux)

She’s young, talented and committed to KZSC. What’s left to say about Shay? “DJ Lux” as she’s known on the airwaves is now a card-carrying member of KZSC’s Program Review Committee. Fun family fact: her father was one of the greatest beach volleyball players of all time. We get to talk with her every week through email; you will be able to hear Shay next October when she joins many of our returning students on KZSC’s fall program schedule.Congratulations Shay for being June’s programmer of the month!
