KEXP Documentaries
KEXP is know for being an authority on local up-and-coming music. But the non-profit radio station’s DJs are also experts on the historical aspects of the music scene in Seattle and the Greater Northwest. Lately, the station has aired several KEXP documentary segments on the grunge movement. The most recent piece focused on the deeply talented but ill-fated band Tad. Led by frontman Tad Doyle, the group had a heavier sound than many others in the grunge scene, but that didn’t stop Tad from gaining the ardent support of a promising new label called Sub Pop Records. Although Tad was championed by fellow scene pioneers like Soundgarden and Nirvana, due to a number of factors they never broke big like their musical counterparts. Listen to the full story here, and click the link above to hear segments on Melvins, Screaming Trees, Alice In Chains, and more.
