History of KFJC’s Remote Broadcasts
KFJC has been doing live remote broadcasts from outside of the San Francisco Bay Area for 24 years, with its first out-of-state broadcast from SXSW in Austin (1994). KFJC’s first international live remote was 22 years ago: from Brixton, England (1996). In 2000, KFJC volunteers traveled to Dunedin, New Zealand to broadcast 6 nights of live music from the Otago Festival of the Arts.
This year marks the 10th anniversary of KFJC’s first international remote with live video. In 2008, KFJC went to Tokyo, Japan and transmitted its first-ever live four-camera video stream.
Recent International Live Remotes
KFJC’s other live international broadcasts with video have included Liverpool International Festival of Psychedelia (2014 & 2017), Eindhoven Psych Lab in Eindhoven, The Netherlands (2015 & 2016), Surfer Joe Summer Festival in Livorno, Italy (2016), and Live from the Icelandic Underground (2017).
Reverb Rampage, KFJC’s 10th international live remote broadcast, will air over KFJC 89.7 FM on Saturday, October 27 (beginning at 10am PDT).

The hosts of tonight had a very succesfull 2018. Imagine a surf band on festival posters with big names as Descendents, Pennywise, Mummies, Dead Kennedys and more! 666% SURFABILLY! Imagine Link Wray & the Sonics had 3 little sons who started a surf band….

first edition of Aloha Fest and left everybody breathless! Now they are back, with a new double album on the legendary US Wild Records. Swamp surf that will rock your sox off!
Grinding organs, guitars drenched in reverb, catchy tunes it seems like a trademark for surf bands from Gent, Belgium. Remember Fifty Foot Combo? Akulas sound like the angry little brother!
