In these unsure times for the United States Postal Service, we wanted to show our appreciation for the post office and the connection of physical mail. On September 22nd, it’s KEXP’s Good Mail Day! We’ll be playing all requests and reading messages that we get by mail. So send us a postcard! Fan mail, love letters, mail-related requests, notes about your favorite parts of KEXP, why you love the post office, pictures from where you live, art from your kids, photos of your cats… we want it on a postcard!
Mail your postcard to:
KEXP Good Mail Day

Drop those off with your favorite USPS mail carrier soon and then tune in on September 22nd to listen for your message or request!
Questions? We Have Some Answers!
Q: Will this overload (aka do more harm to) the United States Post Office?
A: Not from what we can tell! When we (socially distanced) asked our local mail carrier if this was a good idea, they said, “Oh, hell yes! That’s good business!”
Q: What if my postcard doesn’t get to KEXP before Good Mail Day?
A: Great news—we love mail. It will still be so appreciated. But get that postcard in the mail today so that it gets here soon!
Q: Where can I buy stamps?
A: Stamps are available through the USPS online store, buy a bunch! But note that delivery of postage supplies has been taking a while to be delivered, so hopefully you have some stamps around your home or you can buy them in person (at a safe distance) from you local USPS. Find your closest USPS location here.
Q: Mail feels like an important part of Election Day, right?
A: Yes! With the current COVID-19 pandemic, many voters will be opting to vote-by-mail to participate in the upcoming election in November. For more information on how USPS relates to the upcoming election, we recommend this report.
Q: Where can I find out more about what’s happening with the United States Post Office?
A: There have been numerous news outlets reporting on the current predicament with the post office. We recommend this article to start and encourage our listeners to continue their own research on this topic.
