Running playlists are the best!

Such a great eclectic selection of music to help you get through whatever it is you’re doing! Love it!

Sound quality has declined in last couple of months

KEXP podcasts have been sounding super-compressed in the last couple of months (June-Aug 2021), like a bad MP3 radio stream. I’ve sent my concern directly to KEXP, but haven’t heard back from them. Weird, since their radio stream doesn’t suffer from this. Really makes it hard to listen, since you know the music can sound a lot better than this.

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
