    I am already a monthly donator to KEXP. Why do I have to send in a post card if I am already supporting the station with a monthly gift? Seems unfair.

    I am a monthly donor to KEXP. Will you automatically enter me into the contest? Please.

    Jessica, I agree. $0.33 is far too steep a price for a chance to win this prize package.

    I think I agree with the other posters…seems like the timing of this misses my monthly donation, and yet, I guess I’d like to think that committed supporters at some level would be spared having to send in an entry or additional donation to have a chance to win.

    Hi all, thanks for the questions about Amplifiers Club donors and the contest. Unfortunately the rules around sweepstakes are very tight and we’ve been told by our legal advisers that we need to have everyone who wants to participate in the contest opt-in by a donation or a postcard. We’ll keep checking to see if that legal requirement changes in the meantime send us a postcard and we’ll get you in the running. -Thanks!

    He , what do you mean “worldwide music station”?
    Why am I, being a Dutch citizen, excluded from this drawing ?
    I want to donate, I want to win that price and I can fly from Amsterdam
    to the East Coast and then start my winning price package !
