THE END

This is the last month of our subscription with Live365.com.

In the past three years, there have been over 37 thousand visits to the KJRW page.  Most have liked what they saw, and decided to hit the play button to give us a listen.  What they discovered was a mix of songs that really cannot be heard anywhere else.

KJRW is a listener-supported, independent, alternative rock internet radio station.  We play music you don't get to hear on mainstream radio anymore, or maybe never did.  Our favorite artists include:  The Clash, The Ramones, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Minor Threat, Iggy and the Stooges, Nirvana, Green Day, The White Stripes, Pearl Jam, L7 and The Pixies.

Some bands KJRW plays do not even have a record deal.  As you may know, bands without a record label backing them do not get airplay on traditional radio.

KJRW is not just a bunch of songs on "Shuffle and Repeat".  Playlists are hand-crafted.  Songs are placed in a certain order with station identification snippets in between that we hope you will find entertaining.

If you have enjoyed listening to KJRW at any point or even admire the concept, please consider throwing a few bucks our way so that we can remain online for another year.

WHEN OCTOBER GOES

KJRW's rank rose considerably during the month of October.  We're now in the top 6% of the hundreds of rock stations on Live365.  More streams were launched in October than in September and August.

Listeners spent the most time with KJRW since March.  Those with VIP subscriptions listened double the amount of that in September.  People listened for free the longest time in almost a year.

Where they were listening the most:  U.S., Spain, Germany, Canada, France, Mexico, Brazil, Italy, Denmark and U.K.  Inside the U.S.:  Seattle, WA; Montgomery, AL; New York, NY; San Diego and Los Angeles, CA; Austin, TX; Phoenix, AZ; Pittsburgh, PA; Denver, CO and Washington, DC.

The bad news is that KJRW's subscription with Live365.com runs out at the end of November.  But, you can help keep us online another year with a donation at gofundme.com/KJRW-WestSeattle.
