KEXP recently celebrated Transit Operator Appreciation Day. There’s one transit operator in particular that has touched the life of KEXP’s Larry Mizell, Jr. It’s Reggie “Smiley” Wilson. He’s hilarious and humble, he sings on the job, cracks jokes, shares words of wisdom, and always drives with a colorful sign that says “Smile.”

“The best thing to do with a smile is give it away,” Wilson says.
