Don Yates : KEXP Music Director

I'm in charge of managing the station's music, and since what we mostly do is play music, it's quite a task! I sort through the hundreds of new releases and help bring the best possible music to KEXP listeners. I regularly review music for the station, interact with the music biz, let folks know what we're playing, and do whatever else it takes to get folks excited about music. I'm also involved in a number of other areas here at the station, from managing in-studio performances to writing stuff for our webpage.
