Let's take a quick look back at February. As you may recall, January was the best month ever for KJRW. We kept the momentum going in February. Even though our rank clicked down a couple notches due to a few less streams being launched, the average amount of time people spent listening to the station was the highest ever. In other words, a slightly smaller amount of people pressed the play button, but when they did they stuck around longer. And you know, "the longer you listen, the more songs you hear".
People listened the most in the U.S., Sweden, Canada, Brazil, Spain, Mexico, Poland, Germany, Republic of Korea and Italy. Inside the U.S., listeners spent the most time with KJRW in our home base of Seattle, WA; Dallas, TX; Cincinnati, OH; Los Angeles, CA; Tampa, FL; Philadelphia, PA; Atlanta, GA; Denver, CO; New York, NY and Beaumont, TX.
