Who produces KLR?
I do. I am Second Life member AnthonyLovett resident and I produce all the station programs, IDs, commercials, and incidental effects, beaming it all into Second Life 24 hours a day.
What commercials does KLR play?
The station features short commercials made for those in Second Life who help significantly, with no fees charged as everything is done on a reciprocal arrangement. The commercials are kept to a minimum, and KLR does not stack commercials up or run them as a block lasting up to 11 minutes in length, as traditional commercial radio might do.
What is the concept behind KLR?
With the high cost of land in Second Life, and certain great sims and stores seeing a downturn in visitors possibly due to the global financial situation, I felt there was a place for me to help to promote those sims and businesses. I do not see KLR as a commercial venture. Rather it’s a radio station run by a volunteer for people in Second Life to have as an alternative to the mainstream radio stations. It costs me far more than I ever make, but I truly believe that mutual cooperation between sim owners, businesses and KLR radio is a useful way to help generate interest. My station is not a business model, rather it is a service, a helping hand. It runs on reciprocal cooperation.
KLR does not stack commercials up or run them as a block lasting up to 11 minutes in length as a normal traditional commercial radio might do. This keeps adverts to a minimum so as not to interrupt your music listening pleasure too much.
I am currently supported by Legendary Estates, Redangel Clothing Company, Viper Isles dot com, London Square, Bravis LTD and all these are businesses or venues in Second Life.
Music Categories Played
KLR plays music from the 60’s to today across a range of categories including pop, country, dance, trance, EDM, mashups, remixes, album tracks and live concert tracks. I believe in a variety of strong, melodic, well-produced tracks and aim to please the majority of our listeners by offering a wide appeal. I do this through programme sequences and to see those, look on the landing page here.
