"Could you please play "Dancing On My Own" by Robyn? We listen to KEXP every morning- ok pretty much all day- at our house. My students have commented on how much they love the music playing in the background while we work. I've directed them to not only listen to KEXP but specifically your show! Thanks for keeping things in perspective and our house happy and dancing! Much Love." - Sarah

Higher Ground
by Stevie Wonder
(163 plays) | (0 fans)

Off the sixteenth album from Stevie Wonder. His friend and tour director, Ira Tucker, shared this story about the car accident that Stevie was in after the release of this album: "I remember when I got to the hospital in Winston-Salem. Man, I couldn't even recognize him. His head was swollen up about five times normal size. And nobody could get through to him. I knew that he likes to listen to music really loud and I thought maybe if I shouted in his ear it might reach him. The doctor told me to go ahead and try, it couldn't hurt him. The first time I didn't get any response, but the next day I went back and I got right down in his ear and sang "Higher Ground." His hand was resting on my arm and after a while his fingers started going in time with the song. I said yeah, yeah!! This dude is going to make it!"
