KEXP recorded the exclusive confessions of a Retail DJ. Here’s the low-down. She can’t tell you her name. She can’t tell you where she works. What she can tell you is this: she will infect you with music. Her tunes will make you buy those jeans. Even if they’re too expensive.
|Listen to her confession here:

Making this story we were fascinated to find there’s a movement against music in retail stores in the UK.
Music used in this piece: “Crime Lab” by APM Music, “I Feel Pretty” from West Side Story, “Lovefool” by The Cardigans.
What?! There are more stories in the Why Music Matters story series? Yessss!
