Wheedle’s Groove Director Jennifer Maas (And Our Own Matt Sullivan) Featured On KEXP Tonight


Wheedle’s Groove, director Jennifer Maas’ film about the Seattle soul and funk scene of the 1960s and ’70s, has its official homecoming this week with two screenings at the Seattle International Film Festival. We’re biased, but this excellently produced documentary is worth your time and we highly recommend you clear out your schedule to see it. Maas and her husband, Light in the Attic co-founder Matt Sullivan, will also be guests tonight on KEXP’s The Roadhouse. Tonight’s show is dedicated to Seattle soul and funk, past and present. It will feature a live in-studio performance by The Satellite 4, a Seattle-based soul instrumental combo at 7 p.m. (Pacific Daylight Time), in addition to the in-studio interview with Maas and Sullivan, who are scheduled to appear on the program at about 7:30 p.m. Host Greg Vandy is expected to cover a range of topics during the interview, including the making of the film and its critical reception (talk about meet-cute, the couple met when Maas interviewed Sullivan for the documentary), Light in the Attic, and our recent release of Kris Kristofferson’s early demos. The show runs from 6-9 p.m. (PDT) and can be heard over the air and also streaming online at kexp.org.
