Back on Basin Street

Back on Basin Street, was originally billed as a Dixieland show, but given Mal's history in radio, it often featured guests and other non-musical content. Mal's show reminded me of KCHO Sunday Nite, perhaps due to its 9:00 pm airtime, multiple voices on mic, and random acts of comedy.

The recording captured 1:59:25 of this evening's show from 9:00pm - 11:00pm.

KCSM is located at the College of San Mateo. Although it operates with about 11,000 watts transmission power, reception can be challenging, especially in the South Bay. However, those who can achieve clear reception are able to tune in a very-high quality digital signal, as KCSM broadcasts in HD Radio. Thankfully with streaming media, over-the-air reception is no longer a limiting factor to listening. The Internet has definitely changed the nature of broadcasting; in this case, for the better.

KCSM is one of the very small number of 24-hour a day jazz radio stations remaining in North America. KCSM is also the trusted owner of the KJAZ library, the third largest recorded jazz collection in the world. Only the Library of Congress and Rutgers University can claim a more complete documented collection of recorded jazz.
