Membership drives are an amazing opportunity for those of us here at KEXP to be reminded of how important this station is to so many people. The music on KEXP seems so much more personal to people than what’s on your typical radio station. I guess you know that since you choose to listen. Our DJs are knowledgeable and don’t just come in to work for a paycheck. Everyone who works here, be it a staff member, intern, or volunteer, knows they are working for a good cause. And you — our KEXP listeners — make this station an integral part of your daily lives.

Listeners like Peter, who picked the name for his first daughter from an on-air conversation between John and Cheryl (holy cow!), believes the music matters and identifies with our mission.

Jean-Pierre in Washington, D.C. believes that listening to KEXP has a greater purpose for him:

If I may paraphrase what John said one time — what would life be without the arts? Not much. KEXP and everyone who works there have saved my musical soul from bland damnation.

Today’s hump day, and we could really use your support to get through it. If you’ve been thinking about donating and just haven’t had a chance yet, today’s your day! Give us a call or donate online. We’re really looking forward to partnering with you to keep this great station playing great music!
