We’re now up to $181,460.01 as of 11 am! Woohoo!
The Hood-to-Hood Challenge is getting close! Will the lutkefisk-lined streets of Ballard host KEXP once again? Will the tsunami barrier we call West Seattle prevail? Or will Capitol Hill continue to conquer? Your pledge could tip the scales!
Wherever you’re from, we want to thank you for supporting the station if you already have become a member and encourage those of you who haven’t to take the time and do it now. All pledges help -- whether you can spare $10 or $100, you’ll be happy to know that your hard earned dollars are going to support independent radio.
So far, amazing support from our members has put us ahead of schedule, which means that this “hit-it-or-quit-it” drive could end earlier than we thought. Not that our DJs don’t mind flapping their gums and talking up the station they love, but you know that they’d really like to get back to the music ‘cause that’s what it’s really all about -- the music!
Over the years, listener support has made possible the many live performances in the KEXP studio, as well as our VIP concerts and the remote broadcasts in New York, Chicago, and Austin. We’ve had the privilege to host luminaries like Patti Smith, Frank Black, and Gang of Four in addition to many newer bands like Pela, Lymbyc Systym, and Ceu.
Once again, we’re giving back to you listeners who supported these performances by though the third installment of our Live at KEXP series. Featured in Live at KEXP Volume 3 are exclusive recordings from from our studio, from The Triple Door, and from our remote broadcasts at CMJ and SXSW.
