OK, it’s a fact: The Ozcats have pretty much been baseball junkies for the past few weeks. If you haven’t had the pleasure, treat yourself and turn up for one of the home games at Wilson Field. What a pleasant way to while away a California evening (or afternoon). For five bucks, (eight if you want to sit behind the plate) it’s hard to beat the entertainment value anywhere in town; certainly any sports venue.

We’ve added a chat room to replace the inadequate uStream chat and the buggy Stickam chat. You can chat without registering. You can even choose a display name, but if you register you get to keep your registered name and it’s highlighted in the chat. Use the Let’s Talk, Vallejo menu item above. The player just above the chat lets you play our audio stream while you gab.
(The Ozcat Lounge is the same, but for inter-station communication.)
Whirled Hits plays the hits of the world, whatever the language, all whirled up together. Tune in every Tuesday afternoon from 3-6pm PDT at 89.5 FM, via our TuneIn Stream (it opens in a new tab/window). or go directly to our radiostreamer and click Listen. Depending on your setup, it may download a .PLS file which you will need to open.

Welcome to Ozcat Radio’s Vallejo-based chat blog. Feel free to join and join in. In order to keep down the spammers and scammers, this blog is usually moderated, but we’re trying to slip past the bad guys by opening it up to listener registration for a few hours whenever we announce it on the air. If you give us your email address (which we won’t abuse) you’ll be registered and able to comment any time.

We’re still caught between celebratory cheers and shell-shock here. Mostly cheers though. After a 3 1/2 year struggle, the FCC has granted Ozcat Radio a license for KZCT-FM, at 89.5 FM. This is huge! It’s the first new frequency in the Bay area in forever, and the entire Ozcat staff has thrown thousands of volunteer hours into getting us here. Kudos and thanks to all.
Now begins the work, (and FUN!) as we finally get to promote this station. We’ve been hoping and planning for this for a while, so when people ask what we’re going to do with it, well, anyone who has caught the station over the past few years knows pretty much what we’re going to do with it. We’ve been doing it already. Now we get to do it for real, on the air, and we have 3+ years worth of ideas just screaming to be uncorked. It’s our intention to make this a true community radio station for Vallejo. You’re invited to join in and help. We’ll work out how you can do that, but for now, we’re putting some of our plans into action, like this blog. Enjoy it!
