PHILADELPHIA, Pa. – May 9, 2011- In the spirit of Mother’s Day, it’s time to celebrate moms and all they give to the world, including some of the most talented local musicians. WXPN (http://www.xpn.org), the nationally-recognized leader in Triple A (Adult Album Alternative) music and a noncommercial radio service of the University of Pennsylvania, is paying homage to moms with a special “M.O.M’s: Mothers on Musicians” series that begins airing tomorrow.
This new series begins with interviews with the mothers of several Philly Local musicians including Amos Lee, Kuf Knotz, Mutlu, Brian Kenneth Anderson of Fooling April and Matt Duke. The series will also feature select music from the Philly Local musicians.
“I’ve been interviewing local musicians for years, but don’t usually get to hear the family’s perspective on their music career,” said XPN Local Host Helen Leicht. “This series will shed light on what it’s like to raise a successful musician — plus listeners will find out who used to sing into a brush, who loved to sing Fine Young Cannibals in the family car and who was really into sports!”
“M.O.M’s: Mothers on Musicians” will air during the XPN Local program on Tuesdays from 10-11 p.m. Interviews will also be archived on The Key (http://thekey.xpn.org), WXPN’s online source for discovering Philly’s best local music and a member of NPR’s ARGO Network.
