Pushing Boundaries:
Celebrating Asian and Pasifika Experiences Through Music

Throughout the month of May and far beyond, KEXP celebrates Asian and Pasifika voices in music and the arts. This year’s Pushing Boundaries programming kicked off on Monday, May 2nd with KEXP DJs joined by Asian and Pasifika co-hosts who bring stories, perspectives, and music from the various APA cultures in our rich Seattle community. Guests include Crystal White, Dakota Camacho, Richard Fineza Saguin & Lonnie Lomuntad-Wells, JusMoni, and Tomo Nakayama.

Six Degrees of Dolly Parton

On Friday, April 22nd, KEXP celebrated Six Degrees of Dolly Parton. From 7 AM to 7 PM PT, DJs linked each song to the one they played before, beginning with, weaving in and out of, and ending with the music of the Queen of Country herself, Dolly Parton. The DJs made connections through guest vocals, shared musicians, samples, and more, but songs are selected totally on the fly and without pre-planning. If you missed a minute, revisit the day of live human-powered radio below.
