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).

The Fifth KFJC Battle of the Surfin' Bands Sat May 14

KFJC Surf Battle

On May 14, KFJC presents The Fifth KFJC Battle of the Surf Bands. In keeping with the tradition of the legendary Surf Battles of the early 60s, bands are given 15 minutes to present their best material and show, making for a fast paced and exciting 4 hour event. The biggest change this year is a move from the beloved Hotel Utah in SF, to The British Bankers Club in Menlo Park. The BBC is a big, full service restaurant and will easily hold the expected crowd, and will allow minors. Menlo Park is also much closer to KFJC's home.
