Michele Myers : DJ/Host - KEXP 90.3FM, kexp.org Fridays 9PM-1AM - Variety Mix
My favorite styles of music are soul, alternative rock and warm electronic beats. I love anything that’s brainy, circulatory or soulful. For my Friday night show on KEXP I play a diverse mix of rock, beats, hip-hop, R&B, pop, punk, funk, international, roots and more. The trick is to make it all fit together. Matching the new music with cuts from the library so that you hear the latest band and then something familiar next to it.
I started out as a DJ at KALX after graduating from the University of California at Berkeley. In 1995 I moved to Seattle and joined the staff at KEXP as a DJ and producer.
From 2005 to 2011 I created over 200 KEXP Documentaries, (short radio stories on musical subjects).
I co-hosted the morning show “Wake Up” on sister NPR station WNYE in New York City from 2009 to 2011.
As a writer, I've created lesson plans, articles and audio exhibits for KEXP, NPR, Experience Music Project and The University of Washington.
My music site Soulful Alternative features historical and personal stories on songs, videos, artists and the indie lifestyle. There you’ll find not-to-be-missed artists with soul, staying power and the beat.
