I love this! 😍

This is what I have been wanting! A playlist of curated eclectic music I can store on my phone so I don’t gotta use data. Thank you KEXP! Will be donating

Best way to discover new music

I don’t have time to search for new music and I don’t want to do it through traditional pop radio. This is the best podcast to expose you to diverse genres and artists throughout the world. It feels like it keeps getting better. Some individual eps are “bad” or more accurately not my taste, but overall I am extremely thankful this exists.

Great music podcast

I consistently enjoy the various djs shows here, it’s a great way to listen to music when not on WiFi with downloads. DJ Gabriel Teodros recent show Cancel Rent & Chill is excellent!
