If you think your music fits the 3WK sound, we'd love to hear it. E-mail wanda with a link to your music for downloads. Please do not email music as the files are too large. As we do accept downloads, WE DO NOT PLAY MP3'S - we need wav or flac files.
Although we hand choose each song we play, we're automated (keeps our costs low) so we can't respond immediately to requests, but if you ask nicely we will get Jim to add a song for you at a specific time. Email wanda with artist/song and what time you want it played. Give us a couple of days to set it up.
go to the faq page first and if that doesn't answer your question, email jim.

is a wanda thing
Jim Atkinson - PD/tech support/owner and all around good cop.
been in radio since '73, thus the classic rock stream, but loves new independent music, thus the indie stream. Listens to nothing but internet radio in the car (3WK and others). His cats Erik and Larry listen to music with him.
Wanda Atkinson - gm/md/owner and 3WK devil's advocate. thinks her main job is to keep jim from screwing up. he thinks her job is to keep him happy. fun ensues. loves dogs.
James Atkinson 5 - PD of classic alternative station. loves all kinds of music, but his first love is film.
it's the music, baby!
it's certainly not the hours, wages, and benefits (tons, none, and none). it's coming to work and finding new music, any of which could be the best album of the year. it's going to garage sales and finding that long lost album we've been looking for forever. it's giving artists a free marketplace for their music and listeners a filter for all the great new and classic rock that they don't have time to discover on their own.
but mostly it's the independent thing we love most - the freedom to play what we want, to work when we want, and to meet up with the smartest listeners on the net.
thank you for letting us do this since 1997.
