A second letter signed individually by Dave Matthews said, "KEXP's proposed location within Seattle Center would give residents and visitors at all economic levels access to live music, with in-studio sessions and performances in the Park's beautiful outdoor setting.
"It would also create tremendous educational opportunities, growing the city's next generation of artists through apprenticeships, master music classes, recording classes and more."
Also coming out Tuesday in support of KEXP's bid: Sub Pop Records co-founder Jonathan Poneman; Sasquatch! Music Festival promoter Adam Zacks; Alice in Chains manager Susan Silver; Seattle Theatre Group's Josh LaBelle; National Public Radio President and CEO Vivian Schiller; and University of Washington President Mark Emmert.

Music would bring that space to life, and draw a variety of people to Seattle Center.
I hope we do this, I would go with my family.
