Take it from the crackpot behind the annual Big Gay Podcast and the 4AD 4VR blowout—YOU make it incredibly fun to program themed programs and podcasts on KEXP. Did you hear John’s hour-long set of songs about rain on Wednesday? My favorite part was your emails pouring into the DJ booth. They teemed with great artist and song suggestions: Tom Waits, R.E.M., Led Zeppelin, the Cult.John’s “rain” set inspired Christina in Seattle, too:

“I donated today because I listened to John's incredible ‘rain’ set and I thought about how internet radio can't compete with the morning rain sheeting off my window and listening to LOCAL radio. I appreciate all you do for new music, the artists, and the community, but local radio really matters, and we are so lucky in Seattle to have it.
In addition to our Top Artists of All Time countdown, you’ll hear some amazing theme sets during our Fall Fundraising Drive. Saturday afternoon Morgan’s celebrating “Best Space Songs” with an hour of aliens and spaceships, Larry Rose plans to rock nothing but songs under two minutes on Sunday, and John has a slew of great themes—best breakup songs, soundtracks, old-school hip-hop—on deck all week.

Donate right now and you won’t have to miss a moment of all the inspired theme sets crafted for your enjoyment during the Fall Drive!
