The Sound & Vision podcast features interviews, panels, reporting, and commentary that digs into the stories behind the music, with in-depth discussion of the most important issues facing music and arts communities.
We explore the stories of three musicians who work day jobs to supplement their work as artists. First is Lesli Wood, who fronts the band Skates! As a lawyer by day, she used to have to hide her tattoos and neon hair in court in order to be taken seriously. Then, we meet Mark Arm of the iconic Seattle grunge band, Mudhoney. His day job is stuffing records and managing the warehouse for the record label his band is on, Sub Pop. Lastly, we talk to Geo. He’s best known for his Seattle hip-hop group, Blue Scholars, but his main job now is running two acclaimed café/bars in Seattle called “Hood Famous."

Friday, June 21, 2019 was the Summer Solstice, the longest day of the year. KEXP dedicated the daylight time to celebrating beauty and joy of a declining trend: long songs. All day, KEXP DJs only played tracks longer than 6 minutes and 13 seconds, the length of Bob Dylan’s classic "Like a Rolling Stone." While the "Long Songs" programs are no longer available via the 14-day Streaming Archive, you can revisit them now using KEXP Remixed (beta).
On Thursday, May 23, 2019, KEXP presented Music Heals: Addiction & Recovery, full day of on-air programming dedicated to music’s power to heal, overcome addiction, inspire recovery and reduce the stigma around substance use disorder. The event was part of KEXP’s Music Heals series aimed at helping listeners through their most difficult moments, coinciding with National Mental Health Awareness Month. While the shows are no longer available via the streaming archive, you can revisit them now now using KEXP Remixed (beta).
