"Sometimes I really do feel a spiritual connection to KEXP. I've been listening for so long that my sense of style, music, and who I am is inexorably intertwined to this station...There’s no reasoning with the power music exerts over you. Whether the artist is Kermit the Frog, Caribou, or Neko Case, I believe there’s a song or two that always makes you feel special, too.
Last night, I was explaining to my girlfriend about “Rainbow Connection.” How it was an amazingly beautiful song, one of my favorite songs of all time. It was my birthday, so she indulged me and let me play it and sing along. It was the perfect endcap to my evening...
This morning as I'm sitting down to work, a big smile crept across my face as I heard the opening lines of “Rainbow Connection” come through my headphones. A warm feeling swelled in my chest. Thanks for keeping the good vibes coming and extending that buttery birthday feeling into the next morning.”
