Oon Thursday, February 18th, KEXP celebrated Live Music Heals, a day to revel in all of our cherished memories of live music, hear from music venue owners and artists, and much more. At a time when beloved music venues are shuttered, and artists and others who make their living from live music are struggling, it’s more important than ever to talk about why live music matters.

If you were listening to Swingin' Doors on Thursday, February 11th, you might've noticed a trend happening on the playlist: every artist played was Black, in honor of Black History is Now. DJ Don Slack says, "I wanted to shine a spotlight on the important contributions that African-American musicians have made to country music." That spotlight shines brightly through the entire three-hour episode, which you can now stream using KEXP's Two-Week Streaming Archive. [ Stream Expires: 2/25 ]

Long Songs on the Longest Day of the Year

Friday, June 21, 2019 was the Summer Solstice, the longest day of the year. KEXP dedicated the daylight time to celebrating beauty and joy of a declining trend: long songs. All day, KEXP DJs only played tracks longer than 6 minutes and 13 seconds, the length of Bob Dylan’s classic "Like a Rolling Stone." While the "Long Songs" programs are no longer available via the 14-day Streaming Archive, you can revisit them now using KEXP Remixed (beta).
