Every Thursday afternoon, I have the pleasure of airing one of our KEXP Documentaries at 3:00 pm. (DJ Quilty gets the same honor on Saturdays at 2:00 pm). Produced by DJ Michele Myers, each documentary promises to “bring you a musical subject in the time it would take to play just one song”... and not only have they caught your attention, but they caught the attention of Emmy-Award winning director Howard Shack...
Michele is the subject of Howard’s latest film Michele Myers: Listen To This, and it’s the lead piece on KSTW/CW 11’s show Underground an ongoing documentary series of short films that spotlight some of the Northwest’s best and brightest stars. Howard did an awesome job capturing the passion and energy that Michele puts into Nite Life, her Friday night show from 9:00 pm to 1:00 am, and into the KEXP Documentaries series. He also tells the story of how she grew up to become a DJ ---and has even uncovered some rare pics of Michele in grade school!
Michele Myers: Listen To This is scheduled to air on Saturday, August 23 at 9:00pm and Saturday, August 30 at 8pm. And it’s also the featured story on their website, and you can watch it now here:
We’re proud of the hard work that Michele has done for KEXP, and Howard’s beautiful film is a great testament to her work. Be sure to tune in this Saturday!
