It seems odd that a city and region with as great a musical heritage as Seattle would have such lousy radio stations. Most are unimaginative, have terribly small rotations and are owned by corporate outsiders with no connection to Seattle. Fortunately, we do have KEXP, one of the last great radio stations.
KEXP plays new music, rock, techno and dance. They play local bands trying to break out. They play fantastic rockabilly, country and soul. They have one of the best blues shows in the country. All without commercials and mindless chatter. Listen to KEXP randomly throughout the day and week. And realize how great radio could be. At least it still is with this outpost.
