Audioasis is KEXP’s long running local music show. John Richards invited 3 very smart, talented, and informed local hosts to form the Audioasis crew. They are Lisa Wood, Sean Nelson and Abe Beeson. Between the four hosts they are able to deliver three hours of local and live bands from all areas and genres of the Northwest. Audioasis is the source for Seattle bands...
