25,000 - Whoo Hoo!

November 24, 2004

Thanks to all of you who have discovered Folk Alley in the past 14 months - who have E-mailed your friends - who have worn T-shirts and distributed stickers! Thanks to everyone who has helped us reach 25,000 registered users (there are more listeners who shyly listen via a media player - but we're working on them). When I return to my desk after our traditional Thanksgiving Day holiday, I want to tell the world about Folk Alley's latest milestone. If anyone knows a folk-friendly press type, please let me know. I love mailing press releases! Also, keep in mind any ideas you have for site improvements. We're still working without a full-time web designer (the job is listed on the web site if you're interested), so I can't promise anything right away, but we've had some great suggestions lately and this site is for you, so it might as well be what you want. To our U.S. listeners, Happy Thanksgiving!

Try the online magazine Penguin Eggs, at As a Canuck who's only recently discovered you (thank you for making my work day tolerable!), I think I can safely say that there are probably a lot more of us up here who would love to learn about

Thank you for the opportunity to voice my feelings. I love this station and find myself listening to little else. Please continue your work and I will do my best to contribute to our station. Please stay out of politics and let us all pray for and support our troops overseas and to all of those making this world safer from fascist tyranny and terrorism. Thank You, FFM.

I have been playing folk alley for our background music on our thanksgiving holiday. 2 or my relatives have asked me 'what is this? it is really nice!'

The next 25,000 listeners will come faster. Great to hear Patti Casey and Tish Hinojosa on a regular basis!

They say, music soothes the savage beast and during these holidays, I do believe you are making the stress of them a lot more tolerable.
Happy holidays and keep up the good job.
All the Best, Gordon

I wish I could take my computer with me so that I could have Folkalley with me anytime. Is there some other way to listen? Maybe Sat. radio? If not, are you thinking about it?

I think I'm gonna sleep on the couch tonight just so I can listen to folk alley all night!!

I'm serious

I almost freaked out when I discovered this radio on the net. That´s what I was waiting for a long time - folk music straight from America into my PC.
Thank you very much for your existence.

I agree with so much that has been written above.
I am so grateful for Folk! I am proud to be one of the 1st 25,000!

I am new. Less than 1 week ago I discovered the treasure that is web radio. is my current fave. I feel sure I will become a long term listener.

I have a question: I listen overnoight and several times your stream has stopped after as short as 1.5hrs. Only way for me to to resume is to re-click the Audio Stream selection.

Any ideas?

Thanks for everything.

To help spread the word of Folk Alley, try the magazine that doesn't feel like Utah, but celebrates the best of our state.... give em' a shout.

Hi all at Folk Alley. This continues to be my most reliable source for folk music on the 'net. Congradulations on a super job keeping it alive.
I recently added your link to my website, and hopefully you gained a few peeople because of it. I'm trying to help "spread the word".
Merry Christmas to you, and a Happy New Year!
