Best Reason for an Internet


Love the selection, the streaming that flawlessly reaches the far coast, New York, where we live. The current selection is displayed. And for you East Coast radio people, you will understand when I say that being in a time zone three hours behind a 24 hour station means you get late night music during morning drive time when classical stations are obliged to offer light playlists. And the KUSC app is handsome with LA images that speak of a place with a special identity.

KUSC is the bomb dot com


Why wouldn't you want to listen to some bumpin' classical music? Timeless jams curated by the hosts who have surprisingly humorous jabs that elicit even more emotional pleasure on top of the relaxing, beautiful music you're already listening to from the best composers of all time. Sick of ads? Good, you won't have to worry about them here. Seriously, get this app and you'll never find a better station. I've lived in many places aside from LA and THIS, flippin' KUSC is what all stations should strive to be like. Thank you, KUSC.

I live alone in a mountain community and enjoy the fine selection of music and the company of their fine hosts. Most of them provide just the right amount of trivia I and insights to make it interesting but not distract from the fine music.
I'm a long time supporter of the station and wish there was a better way To raise their funds than the quarterly 9 days of pleading. I pay my dues and turn the station off during the fund raisers. Definitely worth the annoyance.
