KEXP is gearing up for it’s fall pledge drive, and this time it’s asking listeners to vote on their top twelve artists of all time. They will be counting down through the list of top artists during their pledge drive that begins September 26th.
These listener polls never turn out the way I would like them to, and sometimes they are so far off the mark I wonder if all the other listeners are even listening to the same radio station.
That said, here is my list of top twelve for you all to review and critique at your leisure.
The top six that should be on everyone’s list:
Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds
The next tier of six
The Rolling Stones
That makes twelve, but if I could vote for more, I’d choose:
Hank Williams, Sr.
That’s twenty. I could go on, but I won’t.
So keep these artists in mind (especially the top 6, because they belong at the top) when you go to KEXP to cast your votes.
You have until 6:00 p.m. this Friday, so don’t delay. Vote now!
Check back when the pledge drive ends on October 3rd to see who the listeners picked.
