Every four years we add an extra day to our February calendars—have you ever wondered why that is?

Earth’s revolution around the Sun actually takes about six hours longer than our standard 365-day yearly calendar. Adding a Leap Day every four years realigns our calendar with Earth’s position in the Solar System, keeping our seasons on track.

So in honor of this special day that happens only once every four years, we’re celebrating on Second Inversion with an episode of music made for stargazing. Tune in for astronaut anthems, atmospheric meditations, and the shimmering sounds of outer space.

To listen, tune in to KING FM on Saturday, Feb. 29 at 10pm PT.
