Sure, we just moved in, but could the KEXP New Home be... haunted? Come find out on Monday, October 31st as we present our very first Halloween Open House in Seattle Center! We'll have plenty of treats from 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM in the Gathering Space. Come make creepy crafts, and commemorate your costume with a photo in our Photo Booth! We'll have giveaways, and our neighbors at La Marzocco Café will have a drink special for the day. And on the air, DJs John Richards, Cheryl Waters, and Kevin Cole will be spinning songs for the occasion. We'll also have station tours happening all day long, in shifts at 10:00 AM, 12:00 PM, 2:00 PM, and 4:00 PM. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to RSVP.
