Much thanks to the folks at Yellowknife Wireless who, way above & beyond their role as our Internet Service Provider (ISP), helped us figure out last Wednesday that our computers at the Madras Oregon transmitter site at Grizzly Peak were being attacked by bad actors from Norway or beyond (probably Putin’s slimebags), causing major disruptions to the entire Jiveradio network.
Currently, all things should be back to what passes for normal around here.
Much thanks to Chris and all the Yellowknifers…supplying KJIV’s connection to you and the world FOR FREE since going on the air in 2018!
Amazon has actually done something GOOD for Jive listeners. They have supported radio stations in building their own Alexa ‘skills’ allowing Jivers to connect directly to our 3 streams, thereby avoiding Tune-In (and other aggregator sites) and their ads. For those of you with all Amazon/Echo devices, the commands are: “Alexa, play:
Jive radio, K-J-I-V, Kay jive, or,
K-D-A-N, kay dan, or,
KBVD radio, bruce van dyke radio
Please send us comments on how it works, or doesn’t. mailto: email@example.com
Thanks to all you Jivers who sent in captions. There were dozens of clever, funny, and witty suggestions. This sure is a creative bunch! Lots of references to flux capacitors, space ships, and duct tape. In the end though, the girls up on 3rd Floor Marketing Dept. voted for these three:
“There! That smell’s fixed!”
“I can fix it!”, said Mr. Smith. Mrs. Smith has given up hope for her cassette player and radar range.”
Where’s one of those pinchy things I use as a roach clip?
Winners will be notified soon by email and receive a Bag-O-Jive Swag plus 3 picks from Klappy’s CD Klub.
WE LOST: Our beloved voice man, our own Don Pardo, FRANK STANTON. He died after a badass cancer fight. His “…maybe the kids have been messin’ with it…” and myriad other production spots will run forever in the Jive-O-Sphere. The day before he died, he managed to voice one last signoff for us all [below], with one of his trademark lines… “Hi everybody, this is Frank Stanton signing off for now, and remember… be cool, buy bonds, and keep smilin’ baby, that sunshine’s good for your teeth!”.

WE WON: One William Traveler Cook, born to Catie & Kevin Cook, mom Catie being our fresh-faced (and evidently quite fertile) new board member having replaced her dad, our co-founder William ‘Bruce’ Van Dyke who blew this pop stand last Fall. Best Jive fishes to Catie & Kevin, our mighty clouds of love are with you!
