jonathan richman tonight at the detroit bar, 9pm, 21+ 15$! i cant make it because of finals but maybe you can!

Thursday, December 2, 2010

slow jams by softjams. 
"Arnika" from Sufjan Stevens' All Delighted People EP. This might be one of the more "boring" songs off the EP, but i think the ending is particularly beautiful, and for an english major like myself, any reference to the leviathan is a +.

Tuesday, November 30, 2010

and on that note...

jonathan richman's thanksgiving plans... yes this was from a year ago, and it's not really thanksgiving anymore, but it's cute, so im still sharing!

this is adorable.

This guy has a new album out called Oh Moon, Queen of Night on Earth... haven't given it a good listen yet, but I am kind of just loyal to him no matter what, and this song is just one of the reasons why.

Wednesday, November 10, 2010

Oh yeah, and this is good too. blackbird blackbird- summer heart. They are also playing at UCI this monday, 11/15! You can go here for more info.

Dustin Wong, formerly of Ponytail. He is playing at Open Melody Nov. 20 here at UCI. He also has a new LP out, Let It Go. Available for download here!

Friday, November 5, 2010

Shugo Tokumaru- Rum Hee off of Port Entropy. This is a release I am legitimately really excited about. This makes me feel nostalgic (not that it was really that long ago) about when I started at KUCI, and put him on my skim tape. He is super talented and fun, and if you haven't heard his album Exit I would definitely recommend it. Also dig this video and the amount of kitty cameos.

 lord fly with dan williams & his orchestra
mento music for your ears

recommended by brian.

 i can't play you on the radio, but i still <3 you forever.

Thursday, September 30, 2010

song of the day. almost friday!

Why should you support KUCI?

We talk a lot about how great our station is, and it is not just because we have really high self esteem. It is because all 100 + staff members believe in the mission of the station, and are dedicated to providing a truly wonderful non-profit community service to Orange County. We don't spend hours upon hours managing the station and maintaining our shows because we get any monetary benefits, or even units at school; we do it because we are passionate about alternative music, alternative talk, and YOU!

Speaking personally, being a part of KUCI has been the best thing to happen to me during my time at UCI and even my life, and I wouldn't have dedicated so much of my time to a station, (I basically live here) to a community and mission that isn't worth supporting. No where else are you going to find such a diverse and great community of people so dedicated to giving unheard artists and topics a voice.

If you have benefited at all from the station whether it be through finding new music, or getting your own music played on the air, please give whatever you can spare to our station to keep us going. Because we are publicly funded community donations are a huge source of our annual budget, so we need you! We always want to thank you for listening, and now is your chance to thank us. :)

By the way, if a warm fuzzy feeling isn't enough to get you to donate we have really great premiums available. We have some awesome cds (Asobi Seksu, Broken Bells, Dr. Dog, Dan Deacon, Elliott Smith just to name a few!) and cd packs (3 for the price of 1) available at the 30 dollar donation levels, with more and more available at each donation level, and every donation no matter how small will receive a small gift!

There is still time to donate to our funddrive! Call 949-824-5824 or donate online at We accept cash, check, and cards.
