Black Friday Live @ EXT Marathon (5a-9p)
Since March of 2020, we have not had more than a couple session take place in our studios due to the coronavirus pandemic, but that hasn’t dampened our desire to help you discover more new music, and to learn more about some of the artists we love. Artists recorded the sessions in their own homes. These special, often acoustic, versions are unique recordings, which have been a part of the #AtHome sessions we air each Friday at 12n.
