What’s New

Version 3.11.1

A very small update to remove our lowest streaming option. We are getting ready for bigger and better things, and it was just in the way. Also fixed a navigation issue where the "back" arrow gets lost in the Streaming Archive.

And now for something completely different. Why did the pianist keep banging their head against the keys? They were playing by ear! I'll see myself out.

As always, let us know how we are doing by emailing

Love KEXP, sometimes playing archived shows is a struggle

I’m newer to the KEXP app/community and truly love the variety of shows available. I listen pretty much daily, and I’ve found I often need to go to the KEXP website to successfully play certain archived shows that don’t play at all on the app. I’ve tried restarting my phone and the app but often am unable to hear any music when playing some archived shows (from my phone directly or through a Bluetooth speaker that I thought might be the issue) or jumping a bit ahead in the playlist. I also make sure to go to the archived show directly versus playing the live set and switching to an archived show (which works occasionally). Won’t stop me from enjoying KEXP but would love to see more refining of the playback of archived shows if possible! 🙏🏽 Thanks!

Thanks for the feedback, truly appreciated. Not good to hear your struggles. We are working on a enhancement that is related to the Streaming Archive, which should improve your experience. Hang in there and stay tuned --KEXP

Please start over

This is still a pretty not-so-great app. Picking shows is weird. Should just be able to pick the show and move on, like SoundCloud. Jumping to a specific time is just odd since the easier thing to use is a timeline with a playhead, like most music players. Even on WiFi the stream being interrupted by changing g the time seems to take forever. You need to wait for the app catch up and then play music before you decide to jump out of the app to use another app. If you jump out, the app freezes.

The old version from way back with fake pre-ios6 buttons was very very very bad. This version, as it was with the old version with “buttons”, functions on a simple stream. The app is deeply flawed and functions in as much as it would be a nice supplement to having a radio. It still seems like it’s a better idea to just make this app only play a live stream, and then make sure it can still play the stream if you open a different app at the same time.

This is still a very good radio station but you would be better off trying not to do anything other than program great music and then play it live.

Sorry you are so unhappy with the app, certainly don't want to hear that! We strive to deliver the best product we can and are happy in the direction we are going but understand your complaints. We hope we can deliver a better experience as we develop new features. --KEXP

Great music, minor improvements for app

KEXP is the greatest radio on the planet! I love finding new music on this station and really feel a sense of connection with the DJs.

My main gripe with the app is that there is no easy way to sort favorite songs by date. For example, if I heard a song and wanted to show it to a friend later, sorting by date would make it really easy. Instead I end up forgetting. My favorites list has become a black hole of great songs, which is difficult to navigate when I'm trying to remember a song I heard last week. Sorting by date would dramatically improve this feature of the app, in my opinion.

Otherwise it's great! Can't wait to listen to more music :) thanks for all of your hard work!
