KOCI Nears One-Year Anniversary
Back in February, I visited KOCI, the low-power FM station broadcasting out of Costa Mesa. The resulting story was here, and basically, even though the episode of their "Backstage Pass" local music show I witnessed was rather awkward--with woefully miscast host "Dr. Barry" trying, and failing, to relate to band members much younger than him--it seemed like the station had some great potential, and that they're worth rooting for.
So, happily, they've reached out to tell us that they're celebrating their one-year anniversary soon (July 1). They're also going to be present at the "Rendezvous Surf Fest" event on July 18 at the American Legion Post 291 in Newport Beach, full details are here. Surf bands Honk, the Chantays, the Surfaris and Fabulous Nomads will be playing, and the whole thing will be broadcast live on KOCI, which if they can pull it off (hey, live remotes are tricky!) would be pretty neat.
