2016: Robyn Hitchcock

Six Degrees of Robyn Hitchcock Day
Friday, April 15, 2016

With a career spanning over 40 years, Hitchcock was an obvious choice for Six Degrees Day. From UK neo-psych band The Soft Boys in the late ’70s, to an active solo career in the ’80s as Robyn Hitchcock & The Egyptians, to his recent work with The Venus 3 — Hitchcock’s rich discography should prove fertile ground for a day of programming. His 1999 single “Viva! Sea-Tac” was the very first song broadcasted from KEXP’s New Home on December 9, 2015.
