KEXP Celebrates Prince

Throughout the month of April, KEXP has been celebrating the life and work of Prince, who passed away on April 21, 2016. You can still listen to some of this original programming via KEXP's Two-Week Streaming Archive!

On Thursday, April 18th, Prince was the subject of our annual Six Degrees special, a twelve-hour block of programming weaving between Prince's many musical contributions and the wide circle of influence he has built throughout his storied career. Guest vocals, backing players, shared producers, and more: the connections between tracks are not pre-planned, and DJs and their teams think on their feet to come up with the next song, as they do daily on KEXP.  [Stream expires: 5/2/19]
