Every year on Canada Day, DJ Cheryl Waters celebrates with a stellar mix of Canadian artists on the Midday Show on KEXP. “There is so much amazing music from Canada." she's said. “You can count on hearing Canadian artists on KEXP every day, but Canada Day provides an opportunity to shine a spotlight on the wealth of musical talent from our friends and neighbors to the north.”
You can use KEXP's Two-Week Streaming Archive to revisit her show, and check out a Video Roundup of just a few of the many Canadian artists who've stopped by the KEXP studios.
