From the Archives

A friend of mine just dug up this old Stranger article from 2001 about when KCMU turned into KEXP. It’s a super interesting read, and provides a lot of history to those of us who may have been 15 and living on the East Coast when this whole thing went down.

Whether Paul Allen has been a die-hard fan of KCMU over the years—as all involved in the partnership want us to believe—it’s obvious where his interest lies: the technology. KEXP has just been handed the resources to transform Seattle’s tiny, beloved non-commercial radio station into an international player in Internet broadcasting. Make no mistake: radio is a dying art; the Internet is the future; and whether KEXP continues to serve Seattle’s local music community or not, it will soon be international in terms of listenership.

Thanks to Liz!
