Concert Calendar

So many concerts…so little time. How do you decide? With live music happening every day in the Bay Area and Santa Cruz, it can be tough to keep up. You can get an audio overview of what’s happening on KZSC’s Concert Calendar. Heard every weekday at noon, The Great 88 covers the music scene in Northern California in about 2 minutes. More details and choices can also be found on our Events Calendar page.


Vote For KZSC!

Odds are KZSC will never win an Oscar, however we have been voted “Best Radio Station” many times in the past. That was then – this is now…the 2014 Santa Cruz Weekly Gold Awards. You need to vote for a minimum of 25 categories and one, we hope, will be for The Great 88. You can vote on-line right now; deadline to make your decisions is the end of February. And who knows? We might win an award for “Best Documentary About A College Radio Station” with this KZSC FILM. Thank you Nikki O’Neil for the production.


Ani DiFranco March 5th

Singer/songwriter Ani DiFranco was considered a “folk punk” artist when she recorded her first albums in 1997 and ’98. Her style and message got her nominated for “Best Female Rock Vocal Performance” at the Grammys both years. Driven by social activism and a restless creativity, she continually leads herself and her listeners into ever more exciting territory. Touring with a five-piece band, Ani DiFranco comes to the Rio Theatre in Santa Cruz Wednesday, March 5th. Showtime is 8 pm.


Takin’ Calls, Dodgin’ Balls: The KZSC Dodgeball Team

Hey sports listeners,

We’ve been hyping this up on Slugtalk for a while now and it’s finally started. That’s right, many months in the making, the KZSC Dodgeball Team has finally come into fruition. After three weeks into the intramural season, the team, made up of various KZSC governing board, staff, and volunteer members has accrued a 2-1 record and we’re still going strong. Come out to our games, Tuesday nights between 8-10PM at the West Field House at College 8. We’d love your support and maybe you can throw a few balls at us as well.
