Video Round-up: Long Songs on the Longest Day of the Year

Video Roundup

The Summer Solstice falls on June 21st this year, and KEXP will celebrate the longest day of the year by breaking out some of the longest songs in our library! From 6 AM - 6 PM PT, we’ll only play sonic gems that surpass the industry standard of a longshot. Actually, all the songs that we'll play will be over 6 minutes, following the trend that Bob Dylan set with his legendary single "Like a Rolling Stone" in 1965, which clocked in at 6:13. Below is just a smattering of songs that clock in over six minutes, many of which you'll hear on the air today.
