Another great replacement for KWOD is El Camino High School's student produced radio station, KYDS 91.5. They occasionally play death metal, unfortunately, but usually KYDS plays a wide variety of bands, from old standbys like Ray Charles and Led Zeppelin, to more obscure alternative acts like Mates of State, Clap Your Hands and Say Yeah (yeah!) and Sufjan Stevens. They certainly have better taste in music than I did when I was their age. The Real McCoy, anyone? Like Off Air, KYDS is commercial free, other than the occasional public service announcement, usually performed by a student, and the hilariously smarmy and over-the-top station identification by some unknown professional voice talent. "It's all KYDS. All the time," indeed. Unlike Off Air, KYDS can be pretty amateurish at times, which is charming, except when they're broadcasting nothing but dead air, which happens too often.
KYDS also rebroadcasts programming from CSU-Sacramento's student produced radio station, KSSU, which plays everything from Rancid to Alicia Keys, depending on the DJ. But how sad is it that KYDS, a high school radio station, has a stronger signal than KSSU, an AM station that cannot be heard beyond the Sac State campus?
