30 Days of Philly Arts

XPN Morning Show host Michaela Majoun will present 30 Days of Philly Arts, a daily on-air and online guide to essential area arts events to see, hear and do during September. Local artists and arts producers will also appear in on-air/online features.

Michaela says, "This is a way to bring attention to a lot more of the local arts organizations and artists than I could with the Friday Morning Arts Crawl feature and spring and fall arts previews that I've been doing for years. I want to incorporate artist profiles into the mix to round out our glimpse of the amazing arts scene in Philadelphia and our entire area."

30 Days of Arts and Culture is just one of the many ways in which WXPN recognizes, supports and promotes music and other arts events taking place throughout the greater Philadelphia area.

Today is the last day to see the National Constitution Center's interactive 1968 Exhibit", about one of the most intense, eventful, important and tumultuous years in 20th century history. It was a year when Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix were high on the music charts and on drugs, and when Frank Borman, James Lovell and William Anders soared "Eight Miles High" into space to become the first humans to travel to the moon and back on Apollo 8. In 1968 television brought the Vietnam War home to America on the nightly news and revealed the war at home as protests against the war increased and activists clashed with police on the streets of Chicago outside the Democratic National Convention.

The Colonial Theater in Phoenixville, today starts a film series starring actors who "usually play nice guys but who are cast in these movies as despicable human beings." In A Face In The Crowd, Andy Griffith's film debut, the man America loved as TV's small town sheriff Andy Taylor on Mayberry R.F.D. plays Larry "Lonesome" Rhodes, a small town drunk, drifter and country musician who rises to fame and influence on national television.
