Non Profit Internet Radio: KEXP

I reconnected with old friend, Stu Nagae recently. Stu and I joined H&Q in the same 1999 Analyst class and we found ourselves sharing an office for the first few months. He's a terrific guy and we got along great. Unfortunately, he moved to Seattle about 5 years ago and we lost track of each other.

Life is funny though and my good friend from Kellogg, Phil Preuss, was telling me a story a few months ago about his undergrad days at Stanford. And who did he mention? That's right, Stu. Turns out Phil and Stu were really good buddies back in the day. Yep, life is funny.

So I reconnected with Stu and among other things, he told me about an Internet Radio Non Profit he works with, called KEXP. It's fantastic. Check out their Live Performances link. I can't get enough of site.

Thanks a bunch, Stu. Here are some of my favorites.

KEXP: She & Him - I highly recommend You Really Got a Hold on Me.

KEXP: The Drive By Truckers

KEXP: My Morning Jacket
