Saturday's Broadcast Forecast from about 5am in California (1pm in Liverpool) includes: far-flung space rock from The Anteloids; heavy blues punkers Dreamherbs; prepared electric guitars from Ex-Easter Island Head; melodic and jangly The Proper Ornaments; an excess of both punk and psych from Orange County's Cosmonauts; Californian space rock maximalists White Manna; the dazzling cosmic pop of Jane Weaver; NY scree architects A Place to Bury Strangers; the most popular Zamrockers from the 70's, W.I.T.C.H.; and the subsonic trip of The Black Angels.

A short history of KFJC live remote broadcasts
KFJC has been conducting live remote broadcasts from outside of the San Francisco Bay Area for more than 20 years. KFJC's first out-of-state broadcast was from SXSW in Austin (1994) and the station's first international live remote was from Brixton, England in 1996. In 2000, KFJC volunteers traveled to Dunedin, New Zealand to broadcast 6 nights of live music from the Otago Festival of the Arts. The station's next international live remote was from Tokyo, Japan in 2008. For that event, KFJC also transmitted its first-ever live four-camera video stream. Additional live broadcasts with video include: Liverpool International Festival of Psychedelia (Liverpool, England in 2014), Eindhoven Psych Lab (Eindhoven, The Netherlands in 2015, 2016), Surfer Joe Summer Festival (Livorno, Italy in 2016), and Live from the Icelandic Underground (Reykjavik, Iceland in 2017).
