WPRB’s award-winning program, “Classical Discoveries,” takes a turn toward the avant garde every Friday from 11AM to 3PM. Host Marvin Rosen and his program won an ASCAP Deems Taylor Radio Broadcast Award in 2005.
This week, Marvin will be joined for the entire program by the director of Bridge Records, Becky Starobin, and guitarist and vice-president of the company, David Starobin. Bridge Records is an independent label from New Rochelle, NY specializing in 20th century classical music.
WPRB & R5 Productions are proud to present all-around cool guys NO AGE on Thursday, July 10 at the First Unitarian Church (2125 Chestnut Street) in Philadelphia.
No Age are currently on tour in support for their new album Nouns, released on Sub Pop. You can’t throw a stone without hitting a rave review for the new record, but in the words of one of our DJs:
“Much more accessible than some of Weirdo Rippers; [consisting of] loud guitar fuzz mixed up with poppy/punk vocals. Play this album!”
Stay tuned to WPRB — you can win tickets to this show!
Also on the bill are High Places, and Abe Vigoda. Both of them are pretty fantastic, so make sure to get there early and check them out!

Here are two awesome events happening after the Saturday edition of Popped! we at WPRB are pretty psyched about.
9PM: England Belongs to Twee! at the Khyber (52 S. 2nd Street)
OppositeLand comes to life! Nerdy twee kids meet, dance, and drink it up with big ol’ skinheads and oi punkers. Easily one of the best DJ nights in Philly. This month, Herbie from Brown Recluse Sings is their special guest! (You might remember Herbie from when I covered Jon Solomon’s show a couple weeks back.) This is a 21+ event, sorry!
12AM: “Nadastrom” at Pilam (3914 Spruce Street)
Baltimore club DJ/genius Dave Nada joins forces with Matt Nordstrom. We have seen Dave lay waste to entire dancefloors. This might be a FREE event. This is an ALL-AGES event, yay!
Stay up until sunrise! Sunday’s Popped! show doesn’t begin until 3PM — that’s plenty of time to catch some ZZZ’s.
WPRB’s hitting up the Popped! Music Festival in Philadelphia this weekend. Please stop by our booth and say hello!
Congrats to all of those who won tickets & passes on our station!
