Bailey Kitka : Traffic Assistant
I didn’t buy this record.
So you know all those underwriting spots you hear? I schedule all of those. People always ask if I make traffic reports, which I suspect means something different to them than it does to me. I also do a ton of other behind-the-scenes action that never really seems to make sense to anybody. I’m part of the less glamorous heart of KEXP and I couldn’t be happier.
I came from a little non-profit radio station (Excellent Radio in Juneau, AK!) where I was a regular mid-day DJ. I always had my sights set on KEXP though and after a year of interning I now get paid to be here! I love the mission of this station and the people who help make it happen. You’ve probably seen me at a drive, spending way too much time here and/or eating a lot of doughnuts. Or maybe you’ve seen me handing out stickers at a show? Probably eating doughnuts while doing it.
