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).
