Each week, Music Director Don Yates shares brief insights on new and upcoming releases for KEXP's rotation.
As we celebrate KEXP's 50th anniversary, bands share their experience with the station.
LA-based artist and fashion icon Uffie shares a joyful guest DJ mix full of nostalgic dancefloor anthems from the late 2000s and early 2010s.
It’s KEXP’s 50th anniversary, and to celebrate we’re taking an in-depth look at each year of our history – from 1972 to 2022. All year long we’ll be bouncing around the timeline, pulling out the best music from a different year each week – both the songs we all know and love and music we might’ve missed the first time around. Tune in to hear spotlight features every Wednesday, and highlights from each year throughout the week. Listen live wherever you tune in, and use KEXP's Two-Week Streaming Archive to catch any spotlights you may have missed!
