Kevin Cole is KEXP Chief Content Officer and the Host of the Afternoon Show.
Performing for over 15 years as resident DJ at Minneapolis’ legendary First Avenue nightclub, Kevin Cole pioneered the eclectic sound for which that city became famous. In 1991, Kevin put a lifetime of record collecting and DJing to the test by starting the wildly adventurous Revolution Radio (REV105), which won numerous national awards and was considered to be the last great commercial alternative radio station in America. In 1998 Kevin moved to Seattle to help a relatively new company, Amazon, launch their music site. In 2002 Kevin turned his attention to KEXP, becoming Chief Content Officer and host of the Afternoon Show where through his wildly diverse mix aims to bring people together through the power of music, building community, not walls!
