FRIDAY: KEXP Radio plans all-day tribute to West Seattle’s Susie Tennant

One month after the passing of longtime West Seattleite and music-scene champion Susie Tennant, KEXP Radio plans a daylong tribute tomorrow. Here’s how KEXP’s website describes the plan for Susie Tennant Day, starting at 5 am Friday:

Join us Friday, February 23rd on KEXP as we celebrate the life of one of Seattle’s unsung heroes, the late Susie Tennant, who as a Promotions Director for Sub Pop and numerous other labels championed artists as varied as Nirvana, Beck, Hole, Mother Love Bone, Sebadoh, Sonic Youth, Supersuckers, Teenage Fanclub, Veruca Salt, and more. It will be a day filled with special guests and incredible music for all who loved her or were touched by the artists she helped bring into our lives.

KEXP is at 90.3 FM and online here.

ADDED: Thanks to Kerry for sending this – a proclamation of Friday as “Susie Tennant Day” in King County:

    Susie was our neighbor.  She was always very kind and sweet and we will certainly miss her.

    It’s only 8:30 and it’s been fun to hear stories on KEXP about her from people who knew and loved her.   What a great tribute to her and the life she led.

    Honored to have known Susie and her family from middle school. Listening to KEXP now and am very moved by all the tributes and learning more about her life and the impact she had in the Seattle music world. My heartfelt sympathies to Chris, Ella and Eli.
