Do you support the continued funding of $3.40, (of which $0.55 for Return to Aid*) per ASUCSB membership per quarter and $2.45 for summer quarter for the Campus Radio 91.9 KCSB-FM/KJUC-AM?
Since 1962, KCSB-FM has served the 805 community as an independent, educational radio
broadcaster offering students and community members hands-on experience in the production
of their own free-form radio shows. With a weekly cumulative audience of over 5,000 radio
listeners and hundreds of weekly streams, we are the only non-commercial, college and
community radio outlet in the Tri-Counties.
KCSB-FM employs 18 student staff leaders, all of whom gain valuable experience in broadcast
media, leadership, interpersonal work relations, event production and training of volunteers.
Our KJUC-AM station allows anyone to undergo a quarterly training program in which they learn
to produce and engineer their own show; we invite any music, cultural arts, or public affairs
program. About 20 students are trained each quarter in content development and radio
production. KCSB News has a regular roster of nearly 20 reporters, and provides a more
formalized news training with Sociology 91 during winter quarter.
KCSB-FM hosts approximately 4-5 free events per year, while recruiting and providing
opportunities for students and the 805 community to engage in radio's behind-the-scenes
activities, with orientations at the start of every quarter.
There is vast knowledge among our 100+ volunteers who have a rich history with activist media
and movements that are of educational value to UCSB students. Moreover, our range of music
programmers and our CD and vinyl collection curated by students over time provides a music
education that is unique and distinct from what is curated by the Music Department or found in
