New Sunday Night Lineup - Dennis

We’re excited to debut a new Sunday lineup on Sept. 6, that we think you’ll like. We're expanding one show and bringing another back by popular request.

Our new Sunday night lineup begins with the smooth sound of Cafe Jazz at 6pm.

Then at 8, a show we have had dozens of requests to bring back: The Putamayo World Music Hour. This innovative show features pop music from all over the world.

If you’re an astute fan, you’ll know that up till now we have only been able to bring you a single hour of Echoes, which actually is two hours long. Well, now you’ll hear the full show. Hearts of Space remains in its 11pm spot.

We hope you’ll like this lineup. As always, we’re interested in what you think of KCCK’s programming. Contact us by email, or make a comment on this article.

Friday, August 7, 2009 All Clean! - Dennis

KCCK fans who use Firefox or Safari as their web browser have noticed something very disturbing over the last few days. Whenever they surfed to our site, they received a warning screen saying that Google had rated as an attack site that would download malicious software to their computer.

Well, I'm happy to report everything is fine. Our site was hacked a couple of weeks ago. It appears the attack came through the software that publishes our Concert Calendar. To fix the problem, not only did we scrub the problematic pages, but actually moved all of to a totally different server, with new access codes and everything.

Unfortunately, even after the site was fixed, the warning still displayed. We had to request a site re-evaluation from Google, which took several more days. Finally, as of Aug. 7, it appears the warning has been taken off.

So, you can surf Jazz 88.3 in safety and confidence. Thanks for your patience.

Thanks to our web host, Royce Bennett at ABC Solutions, and Webmaster John Shulz for their quick action in helping us resolve the issues.
