A Morning Cup of Jazz

Alisa Clancy has been hosting the weekday edition of A Morning Cup of Jazz for about two decades. A lone female drive time host in the competitive Bay Area radio market, her show has always been a fun filled romp to help people get motivated in the morning with some of the best swinging Jazz around. Halloween is a special tradition as witnessed by this ghoulish concoction of music and holiday mischief.

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.
