To improve your lives I have recommedations for you…
KEXP – is a Seattle-based, public funded University Radio Station. They are not run ragged by a commercial sponsor and individual human deejays pick the playlist based on their own tastes and requests.
And what a playlist. If you live in the UK and listen through the day (early morning in Washington State) you’ll hear the most awesome selection of new up-and-coming bands, trippy music, hand picked ethnic stuff and some older classics.
It has a crusader spirit and the DJs lack that veneer of sickly polish that makes mast stations unbearable. KEXP DJs seem cool because they aren’t trying to be cool.
Catch Matt Nichols’ show in the early hours. It’s Muso heaven. And they’ll play requests. Listen online.
