All week long, we’ve heard why you power KEXP: because the unique mix of music provides the soundtrack to your day; because you rely on KEXP to be an independent voice for the arts community; and because you hear music on KEXP that you don’t hear anywhere else. Stories have been pouring in from around the world, telling us just how much the music matters.
Rachel, Ed, Lucia, and Kian write: “You guys rock! You inspired a spontaneous dance party this morning in our living room. (We can’t wait for the Halloween Kids Dance Party.) We are Californians who have lived in Seattle for 10 years. The weather drives us nuts here sometimes, but when we make a list of why we would stay here…KEXP is close to the top!
Kristen in Briançon, France writes: “Even in a small town in the French Alps, KEXP comes in loud and clear! Listening to KEXP reminds me of my home in Seattle. Even better, I can listen to John in the Morning in the afternoon when I am fully awake! Thank you, KEXP, for all you do. You brighten my day and I look forward to sharing your station with all of my students in France.”
Jack in West Seattle writes: “I have been a donor for about 10 years. My wife and I moved to Egypt for a few years and listening to the streaming audio of KEXP was our only connection to ‘real’ music. Thanks for being there.”
Aaron in Capitol Hill writes: “I’m a longtime listener and a single/broke father. But I decided to give so that the music variety and passion that KEXP give to us will continue to be there for my daughter as she grows up and discovers her own favorite music.”
Everyone has their reason for powering KEXP… what’s yours?
