KEXP Morning host and producer John Richards’ annual “Mom Show, a tribute to those who died” — initially started to honor his mother after she passed away from cancer — has become a beloved annual tradition at the station. He’ll share his inspirations for the show, and take an honest look at how a community comes together to share their experiences of death and music. With special musical guests, and personal stories from past years of the program, he’ll explore the intersection of these two distinct veins of life and how they feed into one another. Known on air as “John in the Morning,” Richards is also associate program director at Kexp.org and 90.3 FM KEXP.
Presented by: Town Hall and KEXP-FM, as part of the Arts & Culture series.
