Summer Fundraising Drive: Why Do YOU Power KEXP?

Everything you hear or see or experience via KEXP is powered by YOU and your fellow music lovers. We’re in the thick of our One-Day Summer Fundraising Drive and Hood-to-Hood Challenge right this very minute, and amidst the excitement I wanted to share a few of the reasons donors have shared with us for why they power KEXP.

… the music has helped me through numerous life experiences, from really high moments like listening to KEXP really loudly on the lab speakers and have the best days with my colleagues who were also my best friends, all the way through to the lows, such as when my mom lost her battle to lung cancer this past November … just one day before John’s mom show. KEXP is very much part of my life … and I want it to continue to be part of my life for years to come!

… I’ve lived in great ʺmusic citiesʺ such as NYC, San Francisco, London, Tokyo, DC, just to name a few. I can’t recall one radio station that I listen to more. Whether it’s Kid Hops on Saturday mornings (a mainstay), ʺPreaching the Bluesʺ Sundays or the Morning Show each day, I am always tuned in.

No matter what corner of the earth I’m on, KEXP always make me feel close to home. I’m currently working in Nicaragua, and don’t know where I’ll go next, but John in the Morning remains the constant in my life that keeps me rooted to Seattle.

I have discovered so many new artists and songs that I love thanks to KEXP. Tuning in is always an adventure! I also love the DJs and their passion for the music that they play. Now that I’m in college out of state, listening to KEXP is a little slice of home and I can’t thank you enough.
