“It was so much fun being on the radio! I loved being able to play my favorite genres and source new music to share with the community…I even received letters from inmates at Lompoc Penitentiary thanking me for bringing them ska, reggae and punk rock!” ~Adam Korn DJ on KCSB from 1993 to 1997 (Ska La Carte) and member of the I.V. ska band Henchmyn.
Adam’s frequent in-studio guests included band mates Nichols and Hector the Selecter. They would mention Henchmyn’s local gigs on the air (in passing) but never revealed that they were indeed in the band themselves — until one of the very last shows of their final quarter.
Today’s show recording (on cassette tape) was provided by DJ Darla Bea of Rock It Properly (Sundays on KCSB from 8-10pm) who listened religiously to Adam’s Friday night show from ’95-97 and became a Rude Girl and KCSB Fan for Life.
Says Darla, “Thanks Adam!”
