Summer Membership Drive = Success!

created by Quilty3000

A great big THANK YOU to everyone who became KEXP members during the Summer Membership Drive. We hit our goal on Friday thanks to the 3500 listeners who pledged!

KEXP is a member supported radio station. Thanks to your ongoing contributions, we will continue to bring the quality programming you enjoy, including shows like Positive Vibrations, Best Ambiance, Shake the Shack and many, many others, without commercial interruption and with your input. Where else do you hear DJs playing listener requests, sometimes instantly, throughout the day?

Member support also funds our dynamic website, KEXP.ORG, which brings you an incredible amount of information, including a real-time playlist, an updated concert calendar, opportunities to get involved at KEXP and with community events, and music on demand from our Streaming Archive and Live Performances page.

In addition, we are able to bring you five different podcasts, some daily and some weekly, all for free, including our Music That Matters and Song of the Day podcasts. You can download music chosen by KEXP DJs to take with you on your portable music players or to listen to on your computer. Our Mind Over Matters podcasts will get you thinking about topics important to our community, while Sonarchy podcasts will expand your musical horizons. And of course, our Live Performances podcasts will let you hear in-studio performances again and again.

Here’s our latest Music That Matters podcast, “The Big 50!” Kevin Cole celebrates our 50th Music That Matters podcast by doing the humpty dance. Really. You’ve got to see it.
