    I've been a proud member of this station since the KCMU days, even volunteered a couple of times answering phones during the drives. I've been an amplifier pretty much since the option was first introduced, whenever that was. This station and its community are unlike anything else on the planet, and I'm so very grateful for the music and the message. On a good day I'm fairly isolated anyway - poor health has kept me from enjoying much of what I used to do. But this past year and a half have cut me off almost completely from the outside world! Even living with my family is lonely, as they are free to come and go as they please, but I must rely on them to go out, and that's often a difficult ask. KEXP has provided the companionship and connections that I've craved, and I know that I'm not alone. Man - that Funkadelic track sounds more like Pink Floyd than their usual jams! It's got me in a Pink Floyd mood now...could you please play "Run Like Hell" from The Wall? ~ Angela

    Like the last few songs on 'The Wall', this can be summarized as Hitler's rise into power and downfall into hell just as Pink's life did in the movie 'The Wall'. This isn't as detailed as "Waiting For the Worms", but it is a look into Hitler's terror. The entire theme is based on the dreaded Kristallnacht (Night of Broken Glass translated from German) on November 9th, 1938 which came during Hitler's order of terror. Nazis raided Jewish businesses and synagogues, places of recreation, even homes; throwing people out, destroying what they could. Many were killed and hundreds injured, and 7,500 business and 177 synagogues were destroyed. This is the terror that Pink in The Wall brought over citizens of his own kind. https://bit.ly/36ootHS -- Pink Floyd "Run Like Hell" from the 1994 concert at Earls Court, London, England: https://youtu.be/utLwdxt1UPA

    On this day in 1980, Pink Floyd's The Wall went to No.1 on the US album charts, staying there for 4 weeks.
