KZSM — Celebrating our creative community

KZSM.org proudly offers programming that expresses the wide-ranging imagination and diversity of our vibrant community. Our newest broadcast, “Creative Corner,” airs from 6-7 p.m. on the first Friday of every month. Hosted by Mandi Miller, it showcases the San Marcos Art League, the oldest arts organization in San Marcos. “We talk about who is doing what in our community in the art scene, and how diverse it really is,” Miller explains.
