On Dec. 17, KEXP honors the lives of artists we've lost in 2020. From 5 AM to 7 PM PT, we'll play music from musicians we've lost this year. Join us as we celebrate the music these astounding artists have left behind, playing selections from their catalogs throughout the day. Tune in and listen along via the player at the top of this page, the KEXP app, or on terrestrial radio at 90.3 FM.
