Happy Tartan Day! Okay, so it's not really a Scottish holiday, but one made up by the U.S. back in 1982 to celebrate Scottish heritage. It was on April 6th in 1320 that the Declaration of Arbroath, or Scottish Declaration of Independence, was signed. (In fact, our own American Declaration of Independence was partially based on it, so, thanks Scotland!) We can't think of a better way to celebrate than with some of our favorite Scottish bands. The list below barely scratches the surface, so be sure to tune in to KEXP today 'til 6 PM PT as our DJs celebrate on our airwaves!
