KCSC was one of the first radio stations streaming on the internet in Northern California back in 1999. We’ve greatly upgraded our stream quality and reliability since then and now offer 4 different streams: 3 MP3 and 1 experimental stream in AAC+ quality.
You can download the official KCSC iOS mobile app here:

AACplus Stream – WinAMP only
AACplus sounds as good as our highest bitrate stream, but uses very little bandwidth. This stream works best under Winamp.
Help with Streaming
KCSC uses Shoutcast’s MP3 streaming technology to push our broadcast to the world. If you’re on a DSL or Cable internet connection, the 128kbps stream should work. Public wireless users might prefer the 64kbps connection and those on dial-up connections will need to use the 24kbps connection.
To take advantage of the CD-quality 32kbps aacPlus stream, you need the latest version of Winamp. Available free from winamp.com.
