How to Access KAJI 95.3 FM LP Jazz Radio
There are many ways to get access to Coachella Valley’s premier Jazz station
This is an obvious choice if you are within range of the Low Power FM transmitter tower based in Palm Desert. The FM signal can be found at 95.3 on the FM dial on your car or home radio. An FM antenna may help pull in the signal if you are on the fringe of the broadcast area.
Internet Radio – KAJI can be accessed over the Internet in several different ways:
There are two possible ways to access KAJI via your Receiver if it is Wi-Fi compatible. Many brands (Yamaha, Marantz, Onkyo, Denon, …) are compatible with the music streaming app “TuneIn”. Some other brands (Samsung, Pioneer, Phillips, Bose, Onkyo, Teac, …) are compatible with the streaming app “vTuner”. KAJI is now available on both. If your Stereo is not connected to Wi-Fi, you may be able to patch in your cell phone, tablet or computer to the line-in jacks on the back of your receiver.
Smart TVs are connected to the Internet usually by wireless Wi-Fi. They can receive TV signals over the air, via cable, or via the Internet. Many smart TVs can directly access the TuneIn music streaming app or vTuner app. If not, you should be able to access WWW.AmJazzIn.Org via your Smart TVs internet web browser.
Cell Phones / Tablets
On both Apple iPhones and Android devices use TuneIn or go directly to WWW.AmJazzIn.Org from your browser. Use headphones, or Bluetooth to send the signal to Bluetooth compatible speakers, or “Cast” the signal to the ChromeCast dongle on your TV or Hi-Fi speakers.
Home Theatre Systems
like Home Stereos above, use your Receiver to access KAJI via TuneIn, vTuner, or via a patch to another external device. Home theatre systems and home stereos will provide the best fidelity from the KAJI broadcast.
Access KAJI on your web browser at WWW.AmJazzIn.Org or via the TuneIn app. The TuneIn app can be downloaded from the Microsoft Store on Windows computers or the Apple Store on Apple products.
Automobile Internet Radios
Manufacturers such as Tesla, BMW, and Mercedes Benz are now providing internet connection via satellite. Use TuneIn to access KAJI. Similar capabilities are being introduced by Ford and GM.
Multi-Room Wireless Speaker Systems (SONOS, BOSE, …)
These systems typically require a “Live Stream URL”. “URL” (or Uniform Resource Locator) is just another way to refer to a website name. The Live Stream URL for KAJI is http://edge.mixlr.com/channel/vkjle . This is the best solution for making KAJI available throughout your house.
TVs with ROKU, Google Chromecast, or Amazon Fire TV
These devices allow you to watch TV via the internet. If your TV has ROKU built-in or you have a ROKU dongle (a small device that plugs into the USB port of a TV or computer and provides additional functionality), use the TuneIn app to listen to KAJI. This applies to Chromecast and Fire TV as well.
Game consoles connect to the Internet and can be used for more than playing video games. They are often used, for example, to access and watch Netflix movies, something that you can’t do over a standard cable TV connection. Game consoles such as Microsoft’s Xbox and Sony’s Playstation provide access to either TuneIn or vTuner. KAJI is available on both.
A Note About TuneIn
The TuneIn application, available on cellphones, tablets, computers, smart TVs, and WIFI-enabled stereo receivers, provides easy access to KAJI. Finding KAJI the first time takes some work as there are literally hundreds of radio stations worldwide that claim to broadcast Jazz. However, once you have located it, save it as a “Favorite” station and it will be readily available the next time. A side note: most of the other “Jazz” stations either play Jazz only occasionally or play repeated playlists endlessly with little or no DJ commentary. KAJI is one of the few Jazz stations worldwide that plays only Jazz and has DJs who come from the Jazz world.
