Who produces KLR?
Second Life member AnthonyLovett resident runs KLR from his home, and produces all the station ID’s, commercials, and incidental effects, beaming it all into Second Life 24 hours a day.

What commercials does KLR play?
KLR plays short commercials made for those in Second Life who help Anthony Lovett significantly either practically or promotionally in Second Life. No fees are charged as everything is done on a reciprocal arrangement. “They scratch my back, and I scratch theirs”, Anthony Lovett says.

Commercials are kept to a minimum and only one commercial is played at a time; Only 4 sponsors are featured. One of those is the virtual ‘Olympus Club’ built by Anthony Lovett and based in Romanum.

We do not see KLR as a commercial venture. Rather a radio station run by a volunteer for people in Second Life to have as an alternative to the mainstream radio stations.

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 does. This keeps adverts to a minimum so as not to interrupt your music listening pleasure too much.

Who helps us?
We are currently supported by Legendary Estates, Redangel Clothing Company, Viper Isles dot com, Karuvium and the Romanum Olympus Club, all 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. We’re not targeting specific audiences, unlike most commercial radio stations. We believe in a variety of strong, melodic, well-produced tracks and aim to please the majority of our listeners by offering a wide appeal.
