WXPN, 88.5 FM, Philadelphia, is doing it again. Their fourth annual listener poll is here. Having already counted down the 885 favorite songs, albums, and artists over the previous three years many of the station's faithful fans have wondered what they can do this year to top the three previous countdowns.
Rules, details, and instructions on how to participate are available on a new web site that has just been put online today for WXPN's 885 Most Memorable Musical Moments (885 MMMM). How does the non-commercial station define a "memorable musical moment"? According to the website, "We don't define a Moment—you do! It could be any musical instance that you feel is of historic or personal significance."
Submissions begin today for a countdown that will be broadcast over 88.5 for two weeks beginning on October 2nd.
As part of the festivities WXPN's Program Director, Bruce Warren, invited a lineup of guest bloggers to write weekly about their own "memorable musical moments" that will be posted on the countdown's website. Bloggerhythms has been offered a chance to participate so every Wednesday, from now until the end of August, a new memorable moment will be posted here and added to the station's 885 MMMM website every Thursday. CD reviews will return in September. Check back here this Wednesday for the first post of the series.
