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.
