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

The play button on KJRW was clicked for the 40 thousandth time yesterday.  A couple hundred of those streams were launched during the first week of September.  A few people made KJRW their favorite station on Live365.com this last week.  But, people are not listening for long amounts of time, so our rank slipped a bit.  You've heard College Rock on KJRW for the past few days, and a few songs made it into the Top Ten:
  1. In Bloom - Nirvana
  2. Radio Free Europe - R.E.M.
  3. Rock & Roll Queen - Subways
  4. Higher Ground - Red Hot Chili Peppers
  5. Prison Bound - Social Distortion
  6. Girlsized - Glitter Mini 9
  7. Phenomena - Yeah Yeah Yeahs
  8. Perfect Storm - Strypes

KJRW ROCKS COLLEGE THIS FALL

80's Alternative Rock was once known as College Rock.  It was underground, played only on student-run radio stations in the United States and Canada.  College Rock was a combination of Post-Punk and New Wave music.  
And now that New Wave Summer has ended, it's time for KJRW to go to college.  Soon you will hear from R.E.M, The Cure, The Replacements, The Smithereens, They Might Be Giants and much, much more on KJRW...
