The 13th Annual Non-COMMvention at WXPN: May 15-17, 2013

Visit the Non-COMM archive for all the highlights of Non-COMM 2013!

Our annual gathering of the tribe - radio programmers and industry types from adult album alternative radio (AAA) and public radio stations across the country. The annual convention gives them the opportunity to hobnob and preview new music from artists angling for radio waves. Once again, the convention is in Philly, with meetings and live music showcases to be held at the WXPN building at 3025 Walnut Street, which also houses World Cafe Live.
