Programmer of the Month: Art O’Sullivan

The Golden Road’s Art O’Sullivan moved to Santa Cruz to attend UCSC as an alternative academic experience, but the ocean, redwoods and counterculture kept him here. Upon first listening to KZSC, Art was drawn to the alternative music, talk and special format programming.

He started programing The Golden Road on June 18, 1997 as a 30th anniversary celebration of the Monterey International Pop Festival.
