KEXP

Today, Thursday, September 17th, KEXP celebrates Six Degrees of Greg Dulli Day, where our DJs will demonstrate their "on-the-fly" programming skills all kicked off by a song by the charismatic frontman of The Afghan Whigs, The Twilight Singers, and The Gutter Twins. Wanna watch DJs John Richards, Troy Nelson, and Kevin Cole flail about the DJ booth as they try to come up with their next musical connection? We'll be streaming live video all day long at KEXP.ORG/VIDEO! Watch the madness!

When it came time to choose an artist to spotlight, Dulli was a natural choice, not only for his nearly 30-year-long career, or his long list of musical collaborations, but also for his love of the cover song. From '90s mainstream hip hop to classic Motown standards, he's always able to make the track his own. Check out some examples in this Video Roundup, and some potential links in the chain back to Greg Dulli!
