Everything you hear, see, and experience on KEXP is powered by you and your fellow music lovers. The podcasts, free Concerts at the Mural, live streaming videos of Pixies and Lykke Li … listeners who become donors do all that! KEXP’s One Day Summer Fundraising Drive and Hood-to-Hood Challenge is going strong right now, and I wanted to share a handful of reasons why listeners donate to KEXP:

KEXP's consistent commitment to high quality music NOT heard on regular radio is the reason why I tune in. From styles like boogie-woogie to world to crying-in-my-beer country, KEXP has expanded my musical tastes and exploration more than I could ever repay. The live streaming and archive allows me to continue to follow remotely and for that I'm eternally grateful. – Todd from Santa Clara, CA

I donate because this is the best place I know to keep up with the wonderfully creative and surprising emerging musicians that you showcase. Right now I am listening to the incredible Cloud Cult video you recently posted on YouTube, while I work on a project. – Russ from Denver, CO

I've been listening to 90.3 since oh, around 1985, when I started listing to KCMU. In the sea of crappy radio, KEXP is a bright shining beacon of hope that continues to pique my musical interest, causes me to listen to bands I never would hear elsewhere, and provides that "schedule of awesome" that even my kids look forward to every Friday night. Keep up the nice work! – Nick from Bainbridge Island, WA

Why do you support KEXP? Please make your gift NOW before 6pm and tell us!

Prefer to talk to a real live human being? No problem! Call (206) 903-5397 or (866) 903-5397 and one of our volunteers will be delighted to take your donation. It only takes a minute to give, yet the joy and pride you’ll feel lasts forever.
