Do you have what it takes to be the next great host of Sleepy Hollow? WXPN is looking for a host and programmer for its weekend specialty show. For over thirty years, Sleepy Hollow has been a fixture on XPN’s weekend morning airwaves with an eclectic mood setting mix of jazz, folk, instrumental, acoustic, and contemporary music.
“It isn’t always soft or slow,” says Chuck Elliott who has hosted the show since its beginning. “It’s more about creating a mood, a sense, an atmosphere. Sleepy Hollow is the way you want your weekend mornings to sound.”
Featuring a wide variety of artists – from Miles Davis, Tom Waits and Joni Mitchell to Chet Baker, Norah Jones and Nick Drake – Sleepy Hollow is a place where mood and music combine to create a warm and relaxing weekend morning experience.
If you think you have what it takes, you need to submit what a sample two hour Sleepy Hollow playlist mix (on paper), and a no more than 10 minute aircheck to: Bruce Warren, WXPN, 3025 Walnut Street, Philadelphia, PA 19104.

For your aircheck: if you email us an mp3, there is a 10 MB capacity. Alternatively, you can put your aircheck on soundcloud, Dropbox, Hightail or WeTransfer – be sure to send us the link. This is a paid position and the deadline is January 15th, 2014. Sorry, but no phone calls will be accepted.
