KEXP Presents Six Degrees of Chris Cornell

Local Music
Matthew Howland

In light of the tragic passing of Chris Cornell (Soundgarden, Audioslave, Temple of the Dog), KEXP has decided to dedicate an additional 12 hours of programming to celebrate the life and music of Chris Cornell. Six Degrees of Chris Cornell will place Cornell's music within a larger musical context, exploring his connections in the Seattle music scene, as well as his greater national significance as an essential voice of rock music.

Six Degrees of Chris Cornell

Friday, May 19th. 6AM to 6PM PST.

Starting at 6AM PST, Morning Show DJ John Richards will play a track which features Chris Cornell. The next track played on air will connect somehow to Cornell. Each additional track will relate in some way to the track played before, creating a circle of interconnected music, all centered around the late Mr. Cornell.

Please join us as we celebrate this indelible artist, whose singular presence will be greatly missed at KEXP.
