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.

Artist Penny Framstad’s CD Release Party

Santa Cruz born song writer and singer, Penny Framstad, left the beautiful half moon-bay twelve years ago to seek a music career in Los Angeles. By a stroke of luck, she found herself immersed in the soundtrack industry for film and television after the huge success of her song, ‘Even Angels Fall’ featured in the film 10 Things I Hate About You. After her surprising, and move than deserving, success she was able to get many more of her songs used in film and television. Her filmography includes; White Girls, The Office, Scrubs, Dawson’s Creek, Summerland, and many more!

The incredibly talented and kind artist has since returned to Santa Cruz in a very big way! While continuing to write and perform music, Penny is also opening her new vocal training school called, ‘Penny’s Pop Academy.’ Penny has spent many years training young singers and songwriters, and now she hopes to spread her training to the Santa Cruz community.

On Saturday, November 9th, Penny will be hosting a CD release party on a beautiful estate in Pasatiempo. Penny will be performing her old and new songs during the evening concert. Each guest will receive her new CD and a crab dinner, with additional access to an open wine bar. Tickets are currently available! If you are interested in attending this wonderful event, hosted by an extremely talented and kind artist, please contact Penny Framstad at her website, www.pennyspopacademy.com.
