KZSC prides itself on being a community based radio station, and boy are we excited to welcome in our new members of the Santa Cruz community! That’s right, a fresh batch of UCSC Banana Slugs will be moving onto campus within the week!

Verve Coffee and KZSC would like to thank everyone who came to our Summer Music Sale. Perfect weather, a great live set performed by Bleu, stimulating hot & cold beverages and tons of sale-priced music made it a memorable weekend event. If you were there take a peek at our Instagram photos & videos; you just might see yourself or a friend having fun. Our next event will be in November, our even bigger annual Ultimate Music Sale on the UCSC campus. More info to come this fall.
How many times have you wanted to stroll through a record store with a cup of coffee in hand, only to see a “No Beverages Inside” sign? Totally unfair…and not a problem this Saturday during KZSC and Verve Coffee’s Summer Music Sale, where you are encouraged to have your favorite hot drink while checking out both new and used LPs & CDs galore. Once you start going through the thousands of selections from Streetlight Records, MetaVinyl, BlueBeat Music and others, you may even want a second cup. Also on hand: live music by Bleu plus the infamous KZSC 25-Cent Booth featuring all styles of music for just a quarter. And since this is happening in the Verve parking lot, there’s plenty of coffee and goodies available too. The KZSC/Verve Coffee Summer Music Sale takes place Saturday, August 31st from 10 AM till 3 PM at Verve Coffee, 104 Bronson Street (just a block off Seabright near Dave’s Market). The event is free; get there early for best selection. CLICK HERE FOR DIRECTIONS. More info? Call 831-332-5549.
