This time, Story Time dedicated an entire hour to KPP to discuss the history of the organization and their upcoming plans.

Such a wonderful, energetic bunch and always a pleasure to have at the air room here at KZSC.

Story Time, April 3rd 2013

The literary radio show, Story Time, has been around at KZSC for a whole quarter now. It seemed like the appropriate time to start sharing our episodes with our online listeners as well!

On this week’s episode, Kendra Yoshinaga, and Samantha Allan and I read our favorite poems and shorts stories on air. This included a UCSC alumni, Miranda July, and poetry by Kim Addonizio, Sylvia Plath, and others.

Selecting our favorite pieces and sharing them with our friends and listeners was a whole lot of fun and we hope to continue doing it in the future.
