Jazz 88 KSDS is a full-time mainstream/traditional Jazz radio station, licensed to the San Diego Community College District, broadcasting 24 hours a day from the campus of San Diego City College. Founded in 1951, the station began programming Jazz in 1973 and became the only full-time San Diego Jazz station in 1985.

In 1992 KSDS was nominated Jazz Station of the Year by the radio industry trade publication, The Gavin Report and in 1993 was named Jazz Station of the Year by the National Association of Broadcasters, receiving the prestigious Marconi Award. Numerous nominations and awards have followed.


The programming on KSDS concentrates on blending the new and upcoming artists with the great performers of the past who have given jazz its identity. From artists like John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie, Duke Ellington, Ella Fitzgerald, and Jelly Roll Morton to Rob McConnell, Bobby Watson, Herbie Hancock and Wynton Marsalis.

Jazz 88 features specialty programs that concentrate on various sub-genres of the music, from Dixieland to Latin Jazz, from Swing and Big Band to World Music and vocalists, from all female artists to exclusively guitars. There are several programs that highlight the rich pool of local talent, as well, and it is KSDS that gives both the many great San Diego musicians their greatest exposure and the local audience information about where they can be seen performing around the county. Additionally, KSDS offers a full Saturday night of Blues programming and special blues segments throughout the week.


KSDS is free of commercial clutter, and mainly staffed by volunteer announcers who have a passion for the music and a deep knowledge that they share with the audience. Jazz is educational, energizing, multi-textured and mind-broadening.
