What could be better than being surrounded by music and the passionate fanatics drawn to it? Other than winning the Irish Sweepstakes, not much. If you’re a record collector or just like people watching, the annual KZSC Ultimate Music Sale should be your destination Saturday, November 23rd. Dozens of music vendors will be selling everything from rare collectibles to bargain-priced vinyl and CDs. And back by popular demand, The Great 88 will have a separate titanic table with no item over 25 cents. Fun for the whole family and a Santa Cruz tradition in the fall, the Ultimate Music Sale is…well, the ultimate. FREE admission; FREE parking. Get there early for best selection. The double doors open at 10 AM Saturday, November 23rd. Follow the signs and balloons to the Crown/Merrill Cultural Center on the UCSC campus. More info and pictures on our Facebook Page.

Programmer of the Month: DJ Amanda Rose

This month’s Programmer of the Month is the mighty Amanda Timoney (otherwise known as DJ Amanda Rose) of the beloved Power through Procrastination show. Ever since the show’s debut in January of 2013, Amanda has developed a cult following by featuring soundtracks from films you love. A typical 3-hour playlist will have everything from Cheap Trick to “Sound of Music” to Gogol Bordello or ELO. Along with her super powers as a DJ, Amanda also brings her talents to KZSC’s spreadsheets as our Business Manager…they don’t call her “T-Money” for nothing!

Speaking of money, during our Fall Fundraising Drive, Amanda brought her mom up the station to help out. The mother-daughter team helped raise over $1,300 in three hours. And if you ever get a chance, ask Amanda about how she almost got eaten by a crocodile. Hear the radio show everyone’s talking about on the weekend: Power through Procrastination Saturdays from 9 am to noon on The Great 88, KZSC.

KZSC Tower Work Means No 88.1 FM…

Our Great 88 “Tower of Power” is what transmits our signal into your car radio, home stereo and sometimes loose dental work. Every now and again, it needs some fixing. Thursday evening, November 7th, is one of those times. KZSC will go dark at 88.1 FM starting at 7 pm tonight. Web listeners: we’ll still be streaming out our musical mix. Radio listeners: our signal will return to the usual around 5 AM Friday morning.
