Jazz On Your Cell Phone

If you don't have a mobile broadband plan, no worries!

Wavjazz.net, recently featured in the 2010 Issue of “Jaziz Magazine”, has teamed up with AudioNow to give listeners access to the station’s programming on any mobile phone simply by calling 443.261.3113 from any mobile phone.

"We are excited to share this news with our listeners, who have been waiting for this new way of listening to their favorite jazz station based in the Washington, DC metro area,” said Chris Acton, President of Wavjazz.net . "As a leading broadcaster in our market we need to reach the majority of the market that rely on standard mobile phones. With so many major market terrestrial stations, Wavjazz.net is the fastest growing jazz place to go to hear the artists you love. AudioNow is an affordable and innovative alternative to delivering our programming to a demo of listeners who otherwise would not have the ability to listen.”

Reston, Virginia-based AudioNow is the leading provider of proprietary single-stream technology that allows broadcasters to reach listeners on any mobile device without increasing bandwidth costs. A Recent NYT report noted that over 80% of mobile phone listeners do not access data services and rely on standard mobile phones. The venture-backed company's focus is to expand the free and open distribution of radio to any mobile device because a public with easier access to more information is empowered to make better choices. AudioNow listeners now exceed 12 million listener minutes monthly and growing.

Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
