BIG BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION

One year ago, I was furiously uploading songs to live365.com, building the foundation of the KJRW library online.  And thanks to all of your donations at http://www.gofundme.com/9it0k, KJRW will be online for another year.  You may continue to make donations to help with marketing and purchasing music for the library. 

Now it's time for a big birthday blowout.  The Top 111 of 2011 begins Thursday!  Comprised of all the songs that got the 'thumbs up' over the past year, compiled by me through all those weekly Top Ten lists posted here, and brought to you with limited commercial interruptions.  You can hear it commercial-free by becoming a VIP here:  http://www.live365.com/rewards/pm?tag=member_10222739915.

Here is a little taste:

More at the KJRW Corner Store

Here is the new promotional video for the KJRW Corner Store.  Lots of stuff there now, including shirts, hoodies and stickers.  Check out the new Drinkware Section with glasses and a water bottle. 

I finally received a sample T-shirt in the mail.  Cafe Press printed and shipped it within just a few days.  But either UPS or the USPS screwed up and sent it out to Denton, TX after it arrived in Seattle.  I know that Denton is "The Home of Happiness" according to the Rocky Horror Picture Show, but I was not happy that my shirt was in Texas.  But, now it is here, spinning around inside the clothes dryer and I will be able to wear it soon.

Go to the KJRW Corner Store http://www.cafepress.com/KJRWWestSeattle and order your KJRW stuff today!

YOU SAID IT'S YOUR BIRTHDAY

KJRW turns one year old in a few short weeks!  It's almost hard to imagine that it was about a year ago that I began creating the library of songs to play.  That library continues to expand every day.  The studio is in West Seattle, WA, but KJRW's home is on live365.com.  The web site charges a small monthly fee to house all the tunes.  The reason I chose live365 was because some of that fee goes to the artists that compose the music.

There are commercials that run on KJRW-West Seattle, but I do not choose them, nor do I receive any revenue from them.  So I consider the station to be more like Public Radio than Commercial Radio.  With that thought in mind, KJRW is having a fund drive.

Here is how you can help keep KJRW online for another year:
Thank you for your support,
Julie
