Local music fans, rejoice! NPR has selected Penn’s member-supported radio station, WXPN, to participate in its new AGRO Network of local news websites. (WXPN is the only arts and entertainment site included in the network.)
In response, WXPN created The Key–a new web resource for all things Philly music, which went live in August. (The site’s name is a tribute to Penn’s own Mr. Franklin.) According to XPN:
The Key highlights the best music from the greater Philadelphia area through exclusive interviews, concert previews, album reviews, MP3s, news, studio sessions and more, and includes daily round-ups of the most important local music-related news and performances. The site covers a broad variety of music in Philadelphia, including indie rock, DJ culture, folk, hip-hop, blues and rock and extends far beyond genres that typically air on XPN.
There’s already quite a bit of content on the site, which you can visit at http://thekey.xpn.org. What you think of this new addition to the Philadelphia music (and web) scene?
