Daughter (live at the Gorge)
by Pearl Jam
(28 plays) | (1 fan)

Today is my first day back to work (as a nurse)from maternity leave. My husband is in the midst of getting diagnosed with a pretty serious medical condition. I'm so anxious I could explode, but I can't because I have 3 little kids. Anyway, if it works in your show, I'd love to hear that live version of Pearl Jam "Daughter/it's Ok" that you play sometimes. -Lindsay -- God I miss live music...Sounds great!!!Love Eddie and you too John! Thanks. -Genna

Life On Mars?
by David Bowie
(123 plays) | (0 fans)

It’s dark and orange and raining ash down here in Oakland. And I know that a lot of people have it even worse right now with these fires. I’d love to hear Life on Mars for another day moving through this orange hellscape. No offense to Mars. Thanks! Spencer -- John We are trapped under a smoke filled jaundiced sky this morning here in the Bay Area. The world is a sickly yellow orange...maybe music will help! Doctor: what do prescribe ? Something uplifting! I leave it to your professionalism. As always- keep it up! Brian in Oakland

Hi, John! My name is Mario, I’m 21 years old and I’m from Brazil. KEXP helped me so much during these crazy times. There are moments in life when something happens and changes it forever. You changed my life. So, I would like to request a song that represents all my gratitude for you all. The song is I Never Get Lonesome by Arthur Russell, because I never get lonesome with KEXP. You are not alone. Never. Thanks for everything.

Good Morning Morning Team Thanks for keeping things real. Mad World got me all misty and verklempt. Wondering if you’d consider playing Doo Doo Doo Doo (Heartbreaker)? I may have either too many or not enough Doo’s. I’m not sure ☹ Chris an Art Teacher in Seattle

Hello all, It's my first day of school as a 1st year teacher and I'm nervous, excited, and praying my WiFi holds up. Can you play some Prince for me? I'd love a good dance party before my day begins. All the beat, Chelsey

Gouge Away

How about a song I can bang my head against the wall while screaming. I'm tired of having to tell students, who are grown ass adults, that they need to keep their mask on while they are in the library. I'm tired of them rolling their eyes at me. I'm tired of telling the same damn people everyday. Vent over. The sun is out and it's not too humid yet, so I will take a quick stroll around campus while listening to the KEXP app!
