Radio has always been a notable part of my life. I can’t remember a morning of my childhood when I didn’t wake up hearing my mom turning on the radio above the fridge. Years later, as a Peace Corps volunteer, I kept my shortwave radio as a lifeline; it connected me to the world outside my dusty and beautiful village. Starting my new job at KEXP just over a month ago feels like a perfect extension of my past.

One of the fun parts of the job is seeing and hearing the bands arriving for the in-studio sessions. It’s a thrill to hear artists creating music, and even more exciting to re-live the masterfully captured performances on the Live at KEXP CDs year after year.

We have a wonderful opportunity for everyone who loves the Live at KEXP compilations to participate in its production. By making a gift before February 3, 2012, you’ll help create the CD. To thank you for making a generous gift of $250 or more, we will include your name in the liner notes.

This opportunity only comes around once a year, so don’t miss it. Take this opportunity to power the music and the experiences you love. I am excited to be a part of KEXP and this CD project. I hope you’ll join me and be a Live at KEXP champion.

Make your gift today!
