New Daily Download Center

In late October we launched the brand spanking new Daily Download Center, and everyone seems to be catching on to the virtues of free tunes. If you haven't stopped by, check it out.

We'd like to be able to offer the greatest possible diversity of downloads, so we're asking everyone to spread the word about this exciting service. If you're a musician and would like to participate in our download program, please see our guidelines to get started.

October traffic at AAJ was our highest ever (over 800,000 visitors), and we are confident that the new download offering has something to do with it.

Visual Art Center Re-Launch

We made several improvements to the Visual Arts Center this past week. We now feature new exhibits on the home page and plan to rotate them monthly. We've also expanded the gallery to include 132 exhibits, totaling more than 6,000 images. Here are our most recent additions.

If you're a photographer, painter or illustrator and would like to exhibit your work at AAJ, please visit our Getting Started page to... umm, get started.
