KCSC Radio

As a result of operational circumstances related to the COVID-19 campus closure, KCSC Radio is currently not “on the air.”


KCSC premiered on March 14, 1951 as part of the Speech and Drama Department in what is now Ayers Hall as a radio drama on the campus public address system.

In the early 60s Chico State’s campus became another world after a handful of radio enthusiasts adopted KCSC and created the beginning of rock and roll radio in Chico. As the 70s hard-rock “thing” waned, KCSC listeners found a new friend in the Livewire — DJs who would always play their requests. Always a few steps ahead of the trend, KCSC was named “Best College Radio Station” in a 1987 SPIN survey.
