The KSJS booth
On Thursday, April 30, KSJS held its first ever “KSJS Music Showcase,” funded primarily through a Dean’s Global Grant from SJSU’s College of Humanities & Arts. KSJS’s commitment is to programming that includes a wide range of eclectic information and music from different musical and co-cultural traditions. The station provides an alternative to commercial radio programming by offering a diverse selection of under-represented music and unique public affairs.
The showcase was held in the CVB Quad. That’s on the southeast corner of the SJSU campus, between dormitories, where approximately 1,700 students live.

Thanks to the leadership of KSJS’s Jessica (Jazzy) O’Loughlin and a whole host of KSJS students working hours to support the event, it came together and provided SJSU students–current and incoming alike–with an enjoyable afternoon.
