Whole Wide World
by Wreckless Eric
(35 plays) | (1 fan)

"Hey John, 5 years ago today you played Whole Wide World by Reckless Eric for me after I fell in love with Zana, a girl from Montana. I'm pretty sure you sealed the deal for me that day. We're getting married in a month. It's not the wedding we had planned because of, well virus stuff, but it will be amazing for sure. If you can find a way to fit that in this morning, it would be much appreciated. Thanks for all that you do." - Ben

Hold On
by Alabama Shakes
(73 plays) | (1 fan)

"This is Alexey from Saint Petersburg, Russia writing. I’m working remotely from home these days (digital mapping). It would be great if you could play the Hold On song by Alabama Shakes. I feel that this is a nice cheerful song for our self-isolation marathon. I’ve been listening to KEXP for more than a year and supported it several times (during Give Big as well). Thank you for your "You are not alone" motto - it really works for me! With gratitude" - Alexey

In an interview with Blender magazine, Stevie Nicks stated about the making of this 1977 hit: "I found a drum pattern, switched my little cassette player on and wrote "Dreams" in about 10 minutes. Right away I liked the fact that I was doing something with a dance beat, because that made it a little unusual for me."

Raconte-Moi Une Histoire
by M83
(246 plays) | (1 fan)

"Today is my daughter Jasmin's birthday. She has listened to the Morning Show for years with me, and one of her favorite songs since the time you started playing it is "the frog song" by M83. She's a child at heart so, despite the fact she's turning 20 today, it's the perfect way for me to pay tribute to her." - Raman in Chicago

Stop Pretending
by Deep Sea Diver
(48 plays) | (0 fans)

"We recorded this song, "Stop Pretending", as we were continuing to stay at home. The song was written using a collaboration exercise that we had given to our fans as an outlet to create and find connection in a time of duress & isolation (we called it the "Stay Home Stems" series) —and it ended up also working for us— this song was written, recorded, mixed and mastered in two days at our house, & this what we have to show for it. If often write apocalyptic songs as way to enter a new world that juxtaposes despair with hope.. I hope it can bring a little bit of light in a dark season. Sending all of our love to everyone during this time. We can't wait to be together again." - XO Jessica, Peter & Deep Sea Diver https://thedeepseadiver.bandcamp.com/track/stop-pretending

"I'd like to request "What's So Funny 'Bout Peace, Love, and Understanding" by Elvis Costello because that's the trio of needs we have right now. Thanks for all you do to keep us upbeat. Sending you gratitude from Fremont." - Avery and one and half year old Theo from Fremont

"It's my daughter's 7th birthday today and would love to hear the Pixies if you could work it into the mix. You can consider her a life long listener to KEXP as we had the station playing while she was being born, and we've been listening nearly every day since. Thanks for all you and the KEXP crew do!" - Jeff and birthday girl Marlowe from Oakland
