KEXP: A Seattle Icon

A closer look at the musical heartbeat of Seattle, KEXP.

Sounds By The Sound Season 3 finale pays tribute to the musical heartbeat of Seattle: Listener-powered, commercial-free radio station KEXP. Broadcasting for over 40 years and now streaming around the world, KEXP has helped Nirvana, Macklemore, and many others make the leap to stardom. We’ll take a look at their stunning new home at Seattle Center, built as both radio station and public gathering space. We’ll also see two great Seattle bands, The Cave Singers and Beat Connection performing in and around KEXP’s new home. We’ll also hear from KEXP artists and DJs about how Seattle uniquely fuels such a vibrant, community-centered music scene.
