Spring In Ma Step: A KXSU Mixtape

Spring has officially sprung and we here at KXSU are thrilled at the possibility of some sun. Our editor, Craig, read a study showing that there’ve only 3 days of sunny, mild days in Seattle since October 2016. Three. Madness, I tell you! Now that the flowers are blooming and the sun is starting to come out here and there, we’ve put together a classic KXSU mixtape to pair with some classic Seattle springtime activities.
