Video Roundup: Spaced Out!

This week’s selection of videos commemorates the visit today of astronaut Stan Love to KEXP. In 1998, Dr. Love, who had earned his Master of Science in Astronomy at the University of Washington in Seattle, began training for a future NASA mission, and in February of 2007, he traveled to space on the STS-122 Atlantis. On this, the 24th Shuttle mission to visit the International Space Station, Dr. Love brought along with him a copy of Live at KEXP, Volume Three. Yes, Stan is a fan of the station and of new music in general, and we welcome him on his visit today as he explores the far reaches of KEXP.

Tune in at 9:30AM to the Morning Show to hear Stan Love answer the question that’s been burning in John Richards’ mind: on what soundstage was the Apollo landing actually filmed… and what does rattlesnake taste like?
