D'Vonne Lewis, playing with his son, Donavon at our Belltown Studio.

This week on Sound Effect, it’s our annual tradition of sharing our favorite music stories from the past year.  We open the show by sitting down with the Lewis family, and look back on how each generation has influenced the next to get behind a drum set. We then hear how tragedy and music intersect as the result of a shooting on the campus of Seattle Pacific University. Next, a performance and interview from John Roderick, who decided on a satirical take on a post-election song that ended up coming from a more empathetic place than he originally planned. We also sit down with Paul Caldwell, artistic director for the Seattle Men's and Women's Choruses, who shares how he recovered after his body and life were upended by a near-death experience. We wrap up the show with a conversation with Pastor Pat Wright, who tells us how her career evolved and why the choir she directs is so influential.
