KEXP and DC Need You!

For those of you who do not regularly listen to KEXP, you may not know that the independent radio station is commercial free. This gift to the listeners requires the station to rely heavily on periodic pledge drives to fund itself. For the current pledge drive, they are having a city to city challenge to see which city pledges the most and will then broadcast there for a few days, as a reward. Washington, DC is very high in the running and needs your help to bring a great independent radio station to our home town.

KEXP is a radio station that is based in Seattle, but is streamed live all over the world. It always supplies me with new artists to check out. On top of their indie heavy rotation, they play specialty shows that contain anything from hip-hop to honky tonk. You can check out how the cities are doing here and pledge here. You can check out the real time play-list and see links to stream KEXP here. I believe that $10 is the minimum that you need to donate. Let's band together and bring this home to DC.
