Here’s where the possibilities become manifold and various... You can listen live to our streams (kzsulive.stanford.edu/) – sometimes we send out a different signal on stream 2, stuff like volleyball games and the like. (You can also listen to us on iTunes radio.) You can check out our schedule, and look at some of the resources we list, like the Concert Calendar. Or you can head for “music” (zookeeper.stanford.edu) and get your mind blown. We have something no other college (or ANY) radio station has – Zookeeper. Here you can not only see our charts and playlists (updated live) and reviews, but you can search our collection. Hit “Find It!” and type a word or phrase, and you’ll see where that word or phrase appears in a band name, album or song title, playlist, or review. You can spend happy hours rooting around in our music collection! It’s all thanks to our mad genius programmer, Jim Mason, who incidentally has the most tattoos at KZSU. Enjoy!

Francis - The San Francisco Giants (George Bush was close -- but it's just not funny anymore) canuck - Before my grandfather died, he got all his affairs in order, but let me tell you, those women did *not* like organization. (I made that up.) Decca - Saint Peter is showing a newcomer around heaven. He opens a door and shows the man a bunch of people laughing and having a good time. “That's where the Protestants are.” St. Peter says. Down the hallway they open another door. Lots of people enjoying themselves. “That's where the Buddhists are.” St Peter says. Then they walk down the hall and St. Peter turns, puts a finger to his lips and says “shhhhh.” And then tiptoes past the door. Once past it, the man asks St Peter why they had to be quiet while passing that one room. St Peter responds, “oh, that's where all the Catholics are. They think they're the only ones up here.” dj natty & dj brick - Two antennae got married this weekend. Apparently the ceremony was just okay, but the reception was excellent!

The other penguin turns to him and says, 'What makes you think I'm not?' Meditate upon this truth, my son. J.C. - Upset over a newlywed squabble with my husband, I went to my mother to complain. Trying to console me, my dad said that men are not all like this all the time. "Nonsense," I said. "Men are good for only one thing!" "Yes," my mother interjected, "but how often do you have to parallel park?" Susan Morris - It's too risque for the program guide...I'll tell you in person.
Listen in your car!

DJ Narwhal/DJ Paul the Hammer - paul: a guy walked into a bar and said ouch. scott: i lost my sense of humor to gangrene in the war. Holt Sorenson - Armaments, chapter two, verses nine to twenty-one. And Saint Attila raised the hand grenade up on high, saying, 'O Lord, bless this Thy hand grenade that, with it, Thou mayest blow Thine enemies to tiny bits in Thy mercy.' And the Lord did grin, and the people did feast upon the lambs and sloths and carp and anchovies and orangutans and breakfast cereals and fruit bats and large chu-- Skip a bit, Brother. And the Lord spake, saying, 'First shalt thou take out the Holy Pin. Then, shalt thou count to three. No more. No less. Three shalt be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, nor either count thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the third number, be reached, then, lobbest thou thy Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch towards thy foe, who, being naughty in My sight, shall snuff it.' Amen. P.S. Roar." Joy & Danny - What do you get when you drop a piano down a mineshaft? A flat minor! YOU LOVE IT Ayshbot - Bono Witz - I was at this casino minding my own business, and this guy came up to me and said, “You're gonna have to move, you're blocking a fire exit.” As though if there was a fire, I wasn't gonna run. If you're flammable and have legs, you are never blocking a fire exit. -Mitch HedbergFo - A little old man is walking his dog down the street when he is suddenly engulfed in fire and brimstone. When the smoke clears there is a huge dark figure towering over him. “I AM SATAN! BEELZEBUB! DESTROYER OF SOULS!” shrieks the demon. The old man shrugs. The Devil is furious. He gets right into the old man's face and screams, “I AM EVIL INCARNATE! I COULD KILL YOU WITH A THOUGHT! DO YOU NOT FEAR ME?!” The old man shrugs again. “Why should I? I was married to your sister for 48 years! Alma Mahler - Our country's president.

Gus the Fat & thePeanutGallery - Q Why do crackheads always f*ck doggy style? A So they can both look out the window SASQUATCH - How do you get a baby to stop crawling around in circles? Staple its other hand to the ground =P
Michael Uhila - A man walks into the bedroom while his wife’s sleeping and asks. “Honey how would you like your eggs this morning” His wife replies: “Unfertilized now get the hell out!” Kesha, Christina, Dan, Kev, Ebony - Jesus and Satan were having an on-going argument about who was better on the computer. They had been going at it for days, and frankly God was tired of hearing all the bickering. Finally fed up, God said, “THAT'S IT! I have had enough! I am going to set up a test that will run for two hours, and from those results, I will judge who does the better job!” So Satan and Jesus sat down at the keyboards and typed away. They moused. They faxed. They e-mailed. They e-mailed with attachments. They downloaded. They did spreadsheets. They wrote reports. They created labels and cards. They created charts and graphs. They did some genealogy reports. They did every job known to man. Jesus worked with heavenly efficiency and Satan was faster than hell. Then, ten minutes before their time was up, lightning suddenly flashed across the sky, thunder rolled, rain poured, and, of course, the power went off.. Satan stared at his blank screen and screamed every curse word known in the underworld. Jesus just sighed. Finally the electricity came back on, and each of them restarted their computers. Satan started searching frantically, screaming: “It's gone! It's all GONE! I lost everything when the power went out!” Meanwhile, Jesus quietly started printing out all of his files from the past two hours of work.. Satan observed this and became irate. “Wait!” he screamed. “That's not fair! He cheated! How come He has all His work and I don't have any?” God just shrugged and said, JESUS SAVES. Kevvy Kev - A young man moved into a new apartment on his own, and went to the lobby to put his name on his mailbox. While there, an attractive young lady came out of the apartment next to the mailboxes wearing a robe. The boy smiled at the young woman and she started a conversation with him. As they talked, her robe slipped open, and it was obvious that she had nothing else on. The poor kid broke into a sweat trying to maintain eye contact. After a few minutes, she placed her hand on his arm and said, “Let's go to my apartment; I hear someone coming.” He followed her into her apartment, she closed the door and leaned against it, allowing her robe to fall off completely. Now nude, she purred at him, “What would you say is my best feature?” Flustered and embarrassed, he finally blurted, “It's got to be your ears.” Astounded, and a little hurt she asked, “My *ears*? Look at these breasts, they are full and 100% natural. I work out every day, my @$$ is firm and solid, my skin is flawless. How can you think that the best part of my body is my ears? Clearing his throat, he stammered: “Outside, when you said you heard someone coming? That was me. SO, there that is. I think I warned you it wasn’t gonna be pretty…
Charles Ivan King - The Richard Pryor one when white and black people walk thru the jungle and step on a snake... Byrd of Paradise - eskimo on the way to work,,,breaks down,,,,across the street from a gas station,,,the atendent,,,approaching the eskimo,,,,asks what happened,,,the eskimo says,,,,don't know,,,the attendent,,,tells the eskimo to go across the street to the diner and get something to eat,,,and he'd have it running ,,,when he got back,,,,returning,,,the eskimo finds the attendent leaning against the running car,,,asking the attendent what was wrong,,,the attendent answered,,,”looks like you blew a seal”,,,,at which point,,,(wiping the corner of his mouth”),,the eskimo answered,,no thats just a little mayonaise left over from lunch Ragnar of Ravensfjord - Officer, I know I was going faster than 55MPH, but I wasn't going to be on the road an hour. -- Steven Wright The Big Chief - What the farmer say when he lost his tractor? “Where's my tractor?” Mike R & Tracy - A guy goes to a therapist and says, “Doc, I think I'm going nuts! Some nights, when I'm sleeping, I dream that I'm a teepee! And other nights I dream that I'm a wig-wam!” The doctor looks at him and says, “Oh, you aren't nuts! You're just two tents!” (too tense ha ha get it) (not for program guide:) Also, when I called my dad up to ask what my favorite joke was, he yelled to my mom “HEY WHAT JOKE HAVE I BEEN TELLING YOU LATELY” and she yelled back “AH, SOMETHING ABOUT A DICK” which I thought was hilarious.

Eccentric Soul: The Outskirts of Deep City Reviewed by Katie P. Serious soul and funk from the Deep City label and it's lesser-known subsidiaries. This is an amazing collection of funk and soul from the 1960's and 1970's out of Miami. The styles cover the range with songs that sound like poppy Motown to hard driving funk to sweet slow soul ballads and more. Something for everyone. Check out the extensive liner notes for more details. A few tracks do suffer from less than stellar sound quality, but on the whole they sound great. There are some serious killers on this compilation so don't sleep! Play it now!!! Perry, Lee "Scratch" - Chicken Scratch Reviewed by Sadie O. Very early ska cuts featuring Perry as singer, produced by Coxsone Dodd at Studio One. Some tracks have backing vocals by the Soulettes who feature Rita Marley, one track has the Wailers backing, and one has little-known (in the US) singers the Gaylads. Many tracks have sax solos by Roland Alphonso. Production and backing vocals show how non-professional much great Jamaican music of the 60's really was. Track 19 is manna from heaven, track 13 is great, all are great fun. Droppin' Science: Greatest Samples From The Blue Note Lab Reviewed by Fo Ten of the most frequently sampled rare-groove tracks from Blue Note's '60s/'70s catalog are compiled here; you'll recognize licks from A Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul, J Dilla, etc. (see liners for details). It's a mixed bag some of these tracks are obscure for a reason - but others kick ass, and it's always fun to play "spot the sample."
