About a month into New Wave Summer, listening has dipped to 62%. Remember you can take KJRW with you wherever you go. The Radionomy app is FREE. Commercial interruptions are minimal. We're here to fulfill your Punk and Alternative needs 24-7. Thanks for spending over 24 hundred hours during the month of June with KJRW in the U.S., Germany, Canada, France, Spain, Switzerland, Italy, Netherlands, Poland, U.K., and Austria. New Wave Summer rolls on....
New Wave Summer has begun on KJRW! The Psychedelic Furs are playing as I type this note. We're just a couple of weeks into June, but it is already shaping up to be a good month for the station. People have spent almost 3 thousand hours listening in the U.S., Germany, Canada, France, Netherlands, Spain, Italy, Switzerland, Norway, Austria, and Greece. Listening time is currently at 72%! We may just make it to 100% by September...
As May draws to a close, we are glad we scheduled Soundgarden to be the final Artist of the Day. KJRW was saddened to learn of the loss of Chris Cornell on the 18th after a show in Detroit. He had one of the strongest voices in rock. May he be at peace. KJRW has featured a different artist every day in May. Over a thousand people heard them all. Thanks for checking us out in the U.S., Germany, Canada, Netherlands, France, Spain, Italy, Norway, Austria, Greece, U.K., Slovenia, Portugal, and Thailand. Listening time rose to 45%. We have 4 months to get to 100%. NEW WAVE SUMMER begins later this week. Listen for Depeche Mode, Duran Duran, The Cure, New Order, Devo, Talking Heads, The Police, Blondie, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Joy Division, Tears for Fears, The B-52's, Psychedelic Furs, The Human League, The Smiths and more all summer long. All your favorite Alternative and Punk Rock songs will be on, too. So, catch the wave -- it'll be gnarly and totally tubular, dude!
KJRW will feature a different artist every day this month!
A reason to listen every day in May.
Time spent listening in April fell to 28%. Our hope was to achieve at least 57% to be on pace to reach 100% in 5 months. People did spend over 11 hundred hours with KJRW in the U.S., Germany, Canada, France, Spain, Poland, Austria, and Italy.
It's still cold, cloudy, and rainy in Seattle, but New Wave Summer is right around the corner...
Speaking of corners, be sure to visit the KJRW Corner Store for stuff with the Little Lex Logo!
We enjoyed Pearl Jam Day so much at KJRW, that we have decided to feature a different artist every day in May! Each day in May, one of our favorite bands will be showcased. Get the May Artist of the Day Greeting Card at the KJRW Corner Store to follow along. Unfortunately, listening time has declined quite a bit this past week or so. We are currently at 30%. It would be great if we could double that by the end of April to get back on track. Thanks for listening in the U.S., Germany, France, Canada, Poland, Spain, and Switzerland!
Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times wrote: "To some who know Pearl Jam the best, that ability to survive in and emerge from a turbulent and precedent-setting scene, and continue to thrive almost three decades later, might be its greatest achievement as the band prepares this week to receive one of its greatest honors — induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame."
So put on your PJs and listen to Pearl Jam all day long on KJRW!
We have not received the official word from Radionomy, but it looks like we have enough listening hours to stay online in April. You checked us out over 16 hundred times in March, and spent over 19 hundred hours with KJRW. That means we are about halfway to reaching our ultimate goal. Thanks for listening in the U.S., Germany, Canada, France, Poland, Spain, United Kingdom, Belgium, Italy, and Switzerland. Something funny is going on all day today on KJRW. Listen for songs you will only hear on April 1st. On April 7th, KJRW celebrates the induction of Pearl Jam into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Pearl Jam songs every hour next Friday.
Happy Spring! Almost 3 weeks into March, listening has gone up 26%. That brings us almost halfway to our ultimate goal. Thanks for spending time with KJRW in the U.S., Germany, France, and Canada! We invite you to share some laughs with us on April Fool's Day, when we'll sprinkle some novelty songs into the mix. It's no joke - if you don't listen in March, KJRW won't be online in April. Radionomy checks in on us at the end of the month. KJRW celebrates Pearl Jam's induction into the Rock 'N' Roll Hall of Fame on April 7th by playing Pearl Jam every hour. From the Rock Hall: "The 32nd Annual Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, presented by Klipsch Audio, will take place on Friday, April 7, 2017 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York for the third time....Propelled by the hits “Alive” and “Jeremy” (about a high school student’s suicide), Ten sold over 13 million copies in America, launching a singular career of enduring commercial success (ten Top Five studio albums, half of them Number Ones) and staunch idealism. In the mid-Nineties, Pearl Jam challenged monopolistic practices in the concert-ticket industry; in 2000, they took the live-tape-sharing aesthetic to a new fan-friendly extreme, initiating a series of soundboard-quality live releases from every show – a now-common practice among bands big and new. Pearl Jam have also collaborated extensively – as a group and individuals, on stage and records – with a long list of inspirations including Neil Young, the Who and the Ramones. Twenty-five years after Ten, Pearl Jam are still one of the most reliably explosive, vigorously committed and truly modern rock bands in the world.
One week into March, listening has increased 8%. Let's keep it going! If we stay at this pace, Radionomy will keep KJRW online at the end of the month. Those rascals at Radionomy have mislabeled a Ramones song in our playlist. The first listener that discovers this mistake and emails us at email@example.com with the correct title and what it was changed to will win a crisp one hundred dollar bill! KJRW goes green this St. Patrick's Day, playing a Green Day song every hour! Listen for all the hits, deeper cuts, mashups, and covers from Green Day on the 17th.
Hope you enjoyed all the love songs for Valentine's Day on KJRW. We're staying Under the Covers for the rest of the month. Join us, won't you? Listening time needs a big boost in order to stay online. We are currently at about 20% of our goal. Tune in any time. No registration necessary. It's absolutely FREE to listen. Tell a friend.
Hello and welcome to February! It's been a month since our forced "relaunch" of KJRW on Radionomy. We are happy to announce that we met our listening goal for January. Folks spent time with the station in the U.S., Germany, France, Canada, U.K., Poland, Spain, Hungary, Australia, and Mexico. KJRW was heard in 37 of the 50 United States. It's a new month with a new listening goal. We are currently at 40% of our ultimate goal. Our personal goal is to get halfway there by the end of February. All you have to do is listen. No subscription necessary. It doesn't cost you a dime.
Hello and welcome to 2017. Kinda funny how we just wrote last week about the semi-constant threat of deletion from Radionomy. They did just that 5 hours into the new year. Thanks to Dan the Man at Birch Street Radio, we had a Plan B. When we thought Radionomy might remove KJRW in October, Dan suggested we copy our audio. KJRW - West Seattle is back on as of tonight! And KJRW provides the musical picture round at the Shadowland Pub Quiz Monday night! Get back Under the Covers with KJRW now: http://www.radionomy.com/en/radio/kjrw-westseattle
