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



Monday night's Shadowland Pub Quiz was rockin' and raucous. Rico walked away with the fan-made KJRW T-shirt for correctly guessing the lyrics: "You said irony was the shackles of youth" belonged to a song by R.E.M. (What's the Frequency, Kenneth?). We thank Scott M.X. for letting us invade his quiz show the last Monday of every month.  Scott hosts the Shadowland Pub Quiz in West Seattle Monday nights at 8.

The station's rank climbed a few notches in August. We hit the milestone of 70 thousand visits to the KJRW station page at Live365.com.  There were almost 2 thousand visits in August alone. VIPs spent more time with us in August than in the previous 3 months.  KJRW was made a favorite station the most times since January.  The Facebook page got a bunch more likes.  And we gathered another batch of followers on Twitter.

People were listening the most in the U.S., Canada, Argentina, Australia, New Zealand, Belarus, Mexico, Italy, Japan and Belgium.

Inside the U.S., people spent the greatest amount of time with KJRW in:
  • Seattle, WA
  • Kansas City, MO
  • Detroit, MI
  • Philadelphia, PA
  • Minneapolis-St. Paul, MN
  • Cincinnati, OH
  • Atlanta, GA
  • San Francisco, CA
  • Albany, NY
