Radio About Local (Seattle) Music, John Said:
posted by February 11 at 15:31 PMon
Earlier, I asked DJ John Richards if the new KEXP partnership with Radio New York would mean less coverage of Seattle music.
KEXP plays more local music than anyone in town ever has or ever will.
The Morning Show absolutely will not turn its back on Seattle bands just because it’s on the air in New York. In fact, the Morning Show in New York will be a huge benefit to Seattle bands because they will be able to reach many more listeners.
The second anyone hears less from the Seattle music scene is the second I quit doing a radio show. Why on earth would KEXP stop doing supporting local music? That’s what it’s been doing successfully for 30 years?
