50 Years of Music

KEXP 50 Years of Music Collage

It’s KEXP’s 50th anniversary, and to celebrate we’re taking an in-depth look at each year of our history – from 1972 to 2022. All year long we’ll be bouncing around the timeline, pulling out the best music from a different year each week – both the songs we all know and love and music we might’ve missed the first time around. Tune in to hear spotlight features every Wednesday, and highlights from each year throughout the week. Listen live wherever you tune in, and use KEXP's Two-Week Streaming Archive to catch any spotlights you may have missed! 

Made possible in part by Swansons Nursery, Caffe Vita, and The Black Bibs.

There is an urgent need for blood donations heading into the holidays. Bloodworks Northwest reports the local blood supply is running on fumes, as donations are down and patient needs for Type O blood and platelets are at their highest. All eligible donors are urged to make an appointment to donate in the days and weeks ahead. Get involved to save lives by making an appointment today to give blood.
