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).

This Saturday, April 6 from 2-4PM (Pacific) will mark the debut of a new weekly 2 hour Surf Music radio show on Luxuriamusic.com called FIBERGLASS JUNGLE.
Luxuria is an extremely well known and fanatically followed internet station that presents 24 hours of unusual, specialized programming geared to those with more retro sensibilities. The station features a number of fantastic shows hosted by some pretty heavy hitters covering a wide range of genres and styles--Garage, Psychedelic, Jazz, Easy Listening, Exotica, Lounge, Space Age Pop, Bachelor Pad, Incredibly Strange and Outsider Music, and much more!
Fiberglass Jungle will present the very best in recordings that fall under the wide instrumental Surf Music umbrella. This base encompasses the “pre-surf” instrumental Rock n’ Roll tunes of the late 50s, the classic “First Wave” originators of the early 60s, the “Second Wave” bands of the late 70s and early 80s, the crossover, genre-blending “Third Wave” bands of the 90s, the cutting-edge, description-defiant melting pot of current-day innovators, as well as a healthy dose of Spaghetti Western, international styles such as Japanese Eleki and Finnish Rautalanka, Surf-Guitar-based Exotica, Easy Listening, and Spy/Crime Jazz.
There will be a proper web presence coming soon, which will likely include a blog where each week's playlist and band/song/album information will be posted regularly.
