Cold? Grab A Hoodie!

If you are here in Santa Cruz you know that we’ve had unseasonably warm fall weather…up until now. The nights are already getting longer and we expect our winter chill to last into 2013. Luckily, you can combat the cold in one of KZSC’s Warm Hoodies. Available in your size with The Great 88 logo on the back, you can zip up your hooded sweatshirt and stay warm all winter. BONUS: buying one helps support KZSC!!

You’ll find hoodies, shirts and all KZSC brand products only inside our wood-fired Merchandise Shop.

KZSC’s Annual Music Sale Nov. 17th

If you haven’t been to one of these before and you LOVE music, plan to join the crowd Saturday, November 17th for KZSC’s Annual Ultimate Music Sale. Thousands of CDs & LPs will be available for purchase from bunches of independent vendors in one big room. How big? It’s formally the dining hall at UCSC’s Merrill College. And, as always, KZSC will have its own special 25-cent table. That’s right: CDs or LPs for just a quarter (or four for a dollar). No doubt there’s something for any music hound no matter what your tastes are. P.S. -this is a fun fundraiser for KZSC. Doors open Saturday, November 17th at 10 AM. Get here early for best selection.

If you’re interested in renting table space as a vendor, call Charlie at 831-454-8807 or email us. More info about KZSC’s Annual Ultimate Music Sale can be found on our Facebook Page.

Smile Jamaica

August 6th is when Jamaica commemorates their independence as a nation. With a total population of less than 3 million, the tiny island country has provided the world with a disproportionate number influential athletes, artists and music. Ska and reggae originated in Jamaica and are the focus of  several music shows throughout the week on the Great 88: Skallelujah (Fridays at 8:30 pm), Strictly Rockers (Saturday nights at 6:30), All Fruits Ripe and Joy in the Morning (Tuesdays & Thursdays at 9 am). While we enjoy the achievements of Usain Bolt and other Jamaicans during the Olympics on TV, remembering Jamaica’s creative spark and battle for independence through music can be heard on the radio all summer on KZSC.

Welcome To UC Santa Cruz!

KZSC’s spending some quality time outdoors in the sun with, potentially, the next generation of radio mega-stars. July is filled with New Student Orientation events at UCSC; incoming freshmen (and their parents) come to the campus for orientation events and to register for classes. The Great 88 has set up camp to offer up trinkets and information during the day at College 8. If you’re a new UCSC student interested in radio you can contact our Volunteer Coordinator for details or drop by our booth. Parents: to answer your two most frequently asked questions yes, the weather is like this all year and yes, it’s expensive here. Welcome to Santa Cruz.
