WHAT'S GOING ON (in the middle of May)

Our host site, Live365 is currently conducting a survey by sending listeners an email with a link to the poll questions.  They mostly concern how you would like to monetarily support your favorite broadcasters.  The results we have seen show that people do not really like the idea of subscribing to Live365 and giving a fixed extra amount of money as a donation to their favorite station.  If you would like to support KJRW without going through Live365, you may visit our Go Fund Me page, and donate any amount you wish.  We have added rewards such as stickers, magnets and T-shirts for your contribution.


The Top Tracks on KJRW currently are:
  1. Change the World - Joan Jett and the Blackhearts

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

KJRW celebrated the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony in April. More streams were launched than in March and February. There were the most visits to the station page since last June.
However, people spent slightly less time listening, so our rank dropped a bit. They were listening to KJRW the most in the U.S., Belarus, Spain, Canada, Hungary, New Zealand, Italy, Venezuela, Slovak Republic and Germany. Tops in listening inside the U.S. were:  Seattle, WA; San Francisco, CA; Philadelphia, PA; Denver, CO; New York and Albany, NY; El Paso, TX; Chicago, IL; Grand Rapids, MI and Atlanta, GA.

New Wave Summer is right around the corner.  Listen to KJRW now: KJRW-West Seattle-Alternative & Punk Rock.

WHAT'S GOING ON (in the middle of April)

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction is this weekend.  KJRW is celebrating members all month long.  Listen for Lou Reed and the Velvet Underground.  The Velvets joined a few years back, and this year it's Lou's turn as a solo artist.  You will also hear David Bowie, The Ramones, Talking Heads, The Police, The Clash, Elvis Costello, The Pretenders, U2, Sex Pistols, Blondie, Patti Smith, R.E.M., The Stooges, Beastie Boys, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Nirvana. On top of that are a couple more artists entering the hall this weekend:  Green Day and Joan Jett and the Blackhearts.

April Fool's Day didn't drive folks away, even though it consisted mostly of 80's and 90's pop music. In fact, that day saw the most visits to the station page so far this month.

We recently added a boatload of tunes to the mix, and will continue to add more each week.  Your favorite songs playing on KJRW currently are:

  1. Seether - Veruca Salt
