Under the Needle is a weekly series featuring the best of KEXP’s live in-studio performances. With financial support from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, KEXP is making this weekly series available at no cost to college and community stations from across the country. Each show is also archived and available on this site. KEXP hosts over 400 in-studio sessions each year, including a range of genres and a mix of well-established and up-and-coming artists. Kevin Cole and his staff choose among these sessions to bring an eclectic mix of incredible live performances to Under the Needle.
