WHAT'S GOING ON (In the Middle of March)

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.

WHAT'S GOING ON (at the Beginning of March)

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 kjrwwestseattle@yahoo.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.
