On Friday, April 22nd, KEXP celebrated Six Degrees of Dolly Parton. From 7 AM to 7 PM PT, DJs linked each song to the one they played before, beginning with, weaving in and out of, and ending with the music of the Queen of Country herself, Dolly Parton. The DJs made connections through guest vocals, shared musicians, samples, and more, but songs are selected totally on the fly and without pre-planning.
