In the fall of 1989, Unfiltered Camels was born on the airwaves of The Great 88. The Middle Eastern and North African music show was run by a few DJs when towards the end of 1998, it was announced that it would be taken off the air. An avid fan of the program, David Anton Savage came to its rescue and began volunteering at KZSC. Shortly after, he took the broadcasting class and was the host of Unfiltered Camels by the summer of 1999, and continues to host the program today.
Additionally, in 2007, David began a program specifically for the summer schedule known as The Savage Bistro. This program combines spoken word as well as relevant tracks that are all based on a concept, rather than a particular genre of music. David writes, “I came to believe that the spoken word is a beautiful form of punctuation within the musical sentences of a given set. I have come to image active listeners……the body is slightly titled toward the radio, an ear is turned a bit closer to the stereo, a hand is reaching out to place fingertips on the volume control…… or maybe just a glance at blue numbers in the dark.”
Both shows are on our summer schedule; Unfiltered Camels is on Mondays from 3 to 6 pm, and The Savage Bistro is on Tuesdays from 10 pm to midnight. Keep it locked on 88.1 FM to catch both shows in their savagery while you can…the summer schedule as well as the Savage Bistro will only remain until October 14th.
