Redesigned Website 
More songs in our ever-growing collection
Easy access from other websites!
And as much as we can do!
 • Radio Profile  Stream • Twitter

Just Another Radio is going to be better than ever this year (or something cliche like that)! 
By the end of 2012 Just Another Radio will either be broadcasting without the risk of being cut, or it would of been cut, or the world will end. So, keep tuning in or the world will end!

1st Broadcasting Month Complete!

It has been an entire month since my first broadcasting date and I've got an average of 11hrs/day - this means I've got 2 months left to achieve an extra 1hr a day on average (not even mentioning I have recently been getting up to 70hrs a day!!!).

In other news, WaWaWadio (the other half of RadioBros or whatever we are going by these days) is going to be broadcasting in 2012 with an attempt to revive a genre! The broadcast date is uncertain at the moment as there is a lot of song collecting to do and planning the day template.

Keep tuning in to Just Another Radio, and if I get lots more listening hours there will be a lot of cool stuff coming to the radio. :D

 Just Another Radio can now be found on iTunes and Radio Shaker!
Just Another Radio can now be found under Alternative Rock on iTunes.
Just Another Radio is no longer under 80's Flashback on iTunes Radio, but is now under Alternative Rock as requested a few days ago. I have submitted Just Another Radio (JAR) to other sites but I am awaiting replies. Radio Shaker is also hosting Just Another Radio now and I believe it to be available on Nokia Radio (although I didn't submit it to them!)

Now under Alternative Rock

YouTube Talent - Jenny Wren

Jennywren1 is the channel of a twenty-something year old student from Scotland. She believes that she is 'cursed with a complete lack of a vocal ability', so she tries to compensate by playing instrumental covers of the songs she would like to be able to sing on either piano, keyboard or harp. Her covers have ranged from Cyndi Lauper to Maroon 5 and Rihanna. 

I first found her channel when I came across the instrumental version of 'Little Secrets' by Passion Pit, a video with over 11,000 views. Along with this video, there is a tutorial on how to play it (currently just under 14,000 views). However, her covers are original as they range across such a variety of music. Her instrumental version of 'Little Secrets' is going to be featured as one of my favourite songs on the ultimate playlist

You can find other covers on her YouTube channel for more or click on one of the links below.

MGMT - Time to Pretend (Solo piano cover)

Christmas Plans at Just Another Radio

Image from Digitalart

Here at Just Another Radio HQ (my room) I am getting all the stuff ready on the radio for this week in the build up to Christmas day and New Years! I've added some Christmas songs (by artists such as Frank Sinatra and different Orchestra's) and made them into a day template. We've also got plans to record a chat-session/podcast that we will air later but the air-date is still to be confirmed as we need to record + edit it. 
As usual, we will be playing awesome alternative rock songs, your requests and feel-good tracks. 

Remember to keep tuning in so that we can survive until the end of February! We need enough listeners for the hosting site to keep letting us broadcast! 

Also, add to the #UltimatePlaylist campaign by emailing or tweeting us @Radio_JAR with the hashtag #UltimatePlaylist as well as your favourite song!

Christmas News!

The festive season is upon us and so in the lead up to Christmas, we will be playing some Christmas songs and carols as well as compiling the #UltimatePlaylist. As I previously said, there has been some fine-tuning and sorting out of songs to get out with the bad and have more good songs!

Here are some of the EPIC events we have planned for Christmas day:
  • We will air the Ultimate Playlist
  • We play lots of Christmas songs!
  • We play lots of awesome songs

The Future

My current priorities for the radio include getting enough listeners; without any listeners, all this work will have gone to waste. However, I am going to continue to work on the radio no matter what.
The plans I have at the moment include:
  •          Finalized Logo
  •          Blog/Website Redesign
  •          Creating a Jingle
Music-wise, my targets are to:
  •  Expand the music library
  •  Get on more internet radio hosting sites
  •  Finalize songs that are broadcasting
As many of the popular radios have very specific target audiences, but as Just Another Radio is unique for it variety of music, I am unsure whether to limit the genres on it. So, as a consequence of this, I reopened the Favourite genre Poll for you to vote for you favourite genres.

Just Another Update

In recent news, I have submitted Just Another Radio to some radio hosting sites. Already, within 24 hours, one application has been put on a site called Radio Shaker.

In the future I am looking forward to putting the radio on iTunes and other sites, however I need a lot more listeners if a future for the radio is going to exist because otherwise the site that is hosting my radio will delete Just Another Radio. 

In 3 months, we will measure your average daily audience level of your radio, by then:
- If your radio station doesn’t perform 12 streaming hours per day (30 days average), it shall be deactivated and removed from the Radionomy platform, in conformity with our general conditions of use.
- If your radio station reaches an average daily audience of 12 streaming hours, you will become an advanced user.   

Please listen to Just Another Radio frequently and tell everyone about it to see if they like it otherwise it will disappear.

Bits And Bobs

The simple social experiment of the Do Not Press Read More post was quite a fun one because it became this blogs most viewed post of the month. Interesting eh?
@Radio_JAR now has 11 followers (yay) which isn't a large amount but any support is support so thanks to you all.
Just a reminder that if I don't get enough listeners Just Another Radio will be cut and I'll have to start from scratch :( So get listening and tell people!

Links and Radio Players

JustAnotherRadio is currently broadcasting
I have added a 'Links' box in the sidebar as well as two different radio players (just in case one doesn't work). In the Links box there is a direct link to my Radionomy profile - if you have a Radionomy account or are going to make one, it would be great if you favourited my radio for support.

Secondly, I have a Radio Stream Link. This link is quite important as you can save it and then stream the radio through Windows Media Player or iTunes. I'll create a how to guide to make it clear.

Music library - Artists

So, the radio is currently broadcasting :D But there will be some updates and the radio will grow with more songs and stuff. 

Some of my favourite artists I have added so far include the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Stevie Wonder, Bob Marley, Coldplay, Oasis, Elbow, Lenny Kravitz, Seal and James Brown.
I am adding some new songs from recent albums such as Mylo Xyloto and I'm with You (RHCP). Also, I am questioning whether to include a few popular tracks in the charts, however I will avoid autotune. :D
