For decades KUSC has filled the airwaves of Southern California with inspiring, uplifting, relaxing classical music. From our studios in Downtown Los Angeles to the surrounding deserts, mountains, valleys, coastal areas, and on those long LA commutes, KUSC has brought calm and inspiration to hundreds of thousands of listeners each week. Over the years, KUSC has become a beloved cultural institution our listeners tell us they rely on daily.

For the station, October 24th marks a milestone: KUSC’s 75th anniversary!

For the last few days we’ve been celebrating on-air and online. Visit our Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter to take a look back at the history of the station, reminisce with some longtime friends, and peer into the future to take a look at the exciting things to come.

Take a look at some milestones from our history on the KUSC Timeline.

For the last few months, we’ve combed through our archives, compiled and digitized old photos and newspaper clippings, and talked to members of our community to put together this short video celebration. And now we’re ready to share it with you!

For the last 40 years, listener support has made KUSC possible. To celebrate our 75th anniversary please consider making a gift to get the next 75 years started.
