UNIVERSITY OF PENNSYLVANIA WXPN/PHILADELPHIA Triple A launched its annual “885 Countdown" special broadcast as of TODAY (10/20) at 6a, which will run through FRIDAY, OCTOBER 24th. This year’s theme is “885 All Time Greatest Songs" – which the station did 10 years ago as its inaugural countdown.
As an added treat, the station will air the "88 Worst Songs" on SATURDAY, OCTOBER 25th.
“Every fall for the last decade, we have essentially let our listeners produce our programming for five days,” said BRUCE WARREN, Assistant GM/Programming. "It began as a programming event tied to our big move to our current studios. We never intended it to be an annual event but listeners loved it so much we've been doing it every year since with a different theme each time."
A selection of top-10 lists submitted by WXPN on-air hosts, staff and listeners is posted here.
