WXPN to debut new "Power of Song" series for September
WXPN, everyone's favorite non-commercial radio station out of the University of Pennsylvania, has announced plans to start a new radio and web-based series called "Power of Song." Launching exclusively for September, the series hopes to bring attention to the importance of music in culture by exploring "the intersection between music and politics, tracing the history of music rich in social commentary."
Listeners can catch the segments on air three times a day or by downloading them from the XPN site. The site also plans to include extra content including related video. Bruce Warren, program director, said about the show, "In the context of the election year we thought it would be an excellent public service to let the music do the talking about some serious political, cultural and social issues that in some part still impact our lives."
