Your very own KCSB emerged during the 1961-62 school year.

To commemorate the birth of the UC’s first radio station, we will be presenting a series of celebratory events throughout the coming academic year, culminating with a major KCSB radio-alumni get-together during UCSB Alumni Association’s 6th Annual All Gaucho Reunion, which is scheduled for the weekend of April 27th-29th, 2012.

Mark your calendars, and stay tuned to keep informed on all the ways KCSB will be marking this milestone anniversary!


Alumni Testimonials

“My college career and my life today would be 100 percent different if I had not met Danny MacLeith and gotten involved with KCSB. I met so many friends, had so many wonderful opportunities, built a resume with experience that I still list today and grew as a person.”

Anna Oleson-Wheeler 2003-2007
KCSB Sports Director 2005-2006


“Had a great time doing both a music show and working in the sports department.  I was able to actually work on things that I was passionate about and help others who shared the same passion.”

Nick Pavlatos 1992-1995
Training Director 1994-1995

“Working on a remote broadcast in Isla Vista during riots, on a 2nd floor patio outside a (closed) insurance agency. A sheriff ran up and pointed a shotgun at us and ordered us inside. We showed press badges and explained the door was locked but he kept screaming. Luckily the insurance agent, worried about his office, showed up and let us in. Phew!”

Ann McCreery 1968-1971
