WHAT'S GOING ON (at the beginning of July)

NEW WAVE SUMMER IS A HIT! Listening time has increased since New Wave Summer began on KJRW on June 22nd.  The average length of each stream launched in June was the highest since February.  More people visited the station page during the month of June than in any given month in the past couple years. Listeners added KJRW to their favorite lists more times than in the previous two months.  Consequently, the station's rank climbed.

VIPs spent more time listening than they did in May.  That puts a few pennies in our pockets. Speaking of VIP... If you sign up for a 12-month membership on the Fourth of July, you will receive an additional 4 months FREE. Click here.

People listened the most in the U.S., Belarus, Canada, Spain, France, Brazil, New Zealand, Switzerland, the U.K., and Peru. Listening in the U.S. was tops in our home of Seattle, Washington (as usual). Texas came in second due to 3 cities spending time with KJRW: San Antonio, Dallas and El Paso.  Other hot spots were Tampa, Florida; Chicago, Illinois; Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; Albany, New York; Detroit, Michigan; and San Francisco, California.

Your current favorite songs playing on KJRW are:

  1. It Haunts You Now - Go Betty Go
  2. Sappy - Nirvana
  3. The Passenger - Iggy Pop
  4. See No Evil - Television
  5. Flying Saucer Attack - The Rezillos
  6. Questioning My Sanity - L7
  7. All Apologies - Nirvana
  8. Repeater - Fugazi
  9. Henrietta - The Fratellis
  10. Drug Train - Social Distortion

New Wave Summer rolls on... and be sure to listen for "American" songs on the Fourth of July.

We noticed Live365 added pop up ads to our station page that start playing randomly.  We are as annoyed by this as you are.  We clicked on "Feedback" and told them, and so should you.  Once again, KJRW receives NO MONEY from ADS, pop up or otherwise. Download the FREE Live365 app to listen to KJRW without the pop up ads chiming in at odd moments.
