LAST OF THE INDEPENDENTS

While visiting the Boston area last week, I heard this sad news:
Rock station WFNX being sold to Clear Channel

I remember many nights I sat in the car in the driveway, listening to 'FNX.  What was on the air was so interesting and different that I didn't want to remove the key and go inside the house.  Creativity has been squashed again in the name of profit.  When will the carnage end?

APRIL WHINE

People spent over eight hundred hours listening to KJRW in April. They were listening the most in:
  • America
  • Canada
  • Italy
  • Japan
  • Sweden
  • Macedonia
  • Germany
  • Finland
  • Brazil
  • Hungary
Unfortunately, we didn't set any records in April.  However within the next couple of days,  we will reach the milestone of ten thousand listening hours since KJRW was created.  There have been over twelve thousand visits to the station page and streams launched during the time KJRW has been online. 

May 2nd is my birthday, and I think it would be the coolest gift if the day saw the most streams launched ever.  All it would take is a few moments of your time.  Just click this link:  http://www.live365.com/stations/member_10222739915?play=1
and then click the play button.  Listen to a couple songs.  You might like them even if you never heard them before.
