Summer Fundraising Drive: By Land or by Sea with KEXP

The Summer Fundraising Drive starts today and I am really looking forward to the KEXP Community sharing stories of why KEXP is important to them. Wade from the USS Abraham Lincoln in the Arabian Gulf shared this with us:

“…when the Navy gave me a ticket to submarine base Bangor, WA, I was thrust into a whole new world that I was very excited about….

“I discovered and fell in love with KEXP. I had never heard anything so free before. The more I settled into Washington, the more I felt like a native; like I had never lived anywhere else. My greatest chunk of time in the Navy was spent in Washington, and those times were usually highlighted by having the radio on. There is no other station I would rather hear than KEXP; no place I’d rather live than in the Northwest.

“I’ll be reenlisting for two more years and taking orders to Yokota, Japan to work at the Armed Forces Network. You can bet that I’ll keep tuning into the streaming radio and donating regularly. I can’t wait for the next adventure the Navy has for me and my eventual return to the Northwest. Thanks for the fantastic memories! I can’t wait for more!”

We all have stories of what KEXP means in our lives and how we feel so connected to it. Donors make it possible for KEXP to provide great music to listeners and a home for artists to share what they love to do. The KEXP Community makes it so much more than just a radio station. This week let’s celebrate the power of that community and share our stories with each other.

I hope you’ll take this opportunity to make a gift to KEXP and share your story of why you power KEXP.
