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 aRead more...

Summer Membership Drive: Locavoracious

We’ve all heard about locavores, foodies dedicated to consuming only products grown and made in their immediate geographic region. At KEXP, our passion for promoting music made close to home is insatiable. “Locavoracious,” as it were. Yes, we’re counting down the very best Local Albums of all time in the final hours of the SummerRead more...

Tonight I’m thrilled to be hosting in-studio performances by two influential artists: At 9 PM we’ll be broadcasting a session with Robin Guthrie (formerly of Cocteau Twins), followed by another from Brendan Perry (formerly of Dead Can Dance) at 11 PM.

Summer Membership Drive: Do You Remember the First Time?

For 34 years, I have been living a lie. I’ve been repeating the same fib for so long it’s become the truth. But my conscience is heavy with guilt, and I’m tired of the deception. And what better time to come clean than during the Summer Membership Drive, when so many KEXP listeners profess theirRead more...

Summer Membership Drive: The Transcendent Power of Music

I was talking with the lovely DJ Michele Myers just the other day about the Summer Membership Drive (starting TODAY on Shake the Shack). We were having one of those passionate “friends-talking-about-something-they-love” conversations about why we think supporting KEXP is so important. And I thought to myself, “The amazing thing about the KEXP Community isRead more...

Summer Membership Drive 2010: YOU Power KEXP!

All week long, we’ve heard why you power KEXP: because the unique mix of music gets you through your commute; because you’ve come to depend on the DJs to help you discover new music; because you hear music on KEXP that you don’t hear anywhere else.

Summer Membership Drive 2010: True Confessions

True confessions? I prefer to write a blog with a gin and tonic at my elbow. It makes me feel like Henry Miller or William S. Burroughs. If they drank when they wrote, I know it would be whiskey, but a girl can dream. I like feeling like them -- kinda bad ass-ish, kinda grizzled...Read more...

Summer Membership Drive 2010: Five Days In and We’re Counting on You

We’re five days into the Summer Membership Drive, and a slight whiff of hysteria is starting to sweep over the staff and DJs. It could just be from living for days off of caffeine and cupcakes. Right now, Capitol Hill is in the lead of our Hood-to-Hood Challenge!

Summer Membership Drive 2010: Connecting the Dots

I’ve got blues on the brain. I’ve always sort of understood that the blues are the basis of so much contemporary music. But, I didn’t know how to hear Sonny Boy Williamson in The Gossip. That’s all changed now that I’ve taken a class at the University of Washington with Professor Larry Starr. Over tenRead more...
