What is Free Jango Radio?

What is Free Jango Radio?

How can it be free? Instead of forcing the listeners to purchase a package deal in order to avoid having to listen to annoying advertisements, Jango allows independent and small music studios to purchase radio air time. Jango then makes listening free, at the “price” of listening to new artists between your favorite songs instead of listening to ads. Jango even allows you to pick the type of music you’d prefer to hear by the independent artists.

New Release Enfold Folk Album.

Enfold Album is Ward Kelley owner of Wardco Studios newest release.

Enfolds is available for download at Enfold Ward Kelley Artist.

Enfold is a contemporary folk album by Joan in the Fires, featuring Jessie Doyle. It combines the lyrics of poet Ward Kelley with imaginative melodies to produce a truly unique folk listening experience.

15 songs take the listener on a voyage through a Wild Mouse amusement park ride to the poets Sylvia Plath and Emily Dickinson to the Book of Proverbs to ancient Rome and finally to the Secret of Life, a tongue-in-cheek look at the world’s religion where the singer laments she is theologically abused. Interspaced throughout the album are new but more conventional folk songs and topics.

One thing is for certain, the listener will come away with a unique folk experience!

The Wild Mouse Roller Coaster Song

The Wild Mouse Song: The singer imagines the boundary between life and death as an amusement park ride, then conjectures communicating with ‘little dead souls.’

The track work is characterized by many turns and bunny hops, the latter producing abrupt negative vertical G forces.
