WXPN’s award-winning Kids Corner radio show kicks off its 25th Anniversary with a special Kids Corner Music Festival at Union Transfer on February 17th. In addition to live music provided by The Not-Its! and Big Bang Boom, this event will feature a brief kid’s press conference, giving future journalists from local elementary and middle schools the opportunity to ask host Kathy O’Connell questions about Kids Corner’s storied history.

“In March 2011 the Kids Corner Music Festivalmade its debut at World Cafe Live in Philadelphia. We presented some of the newest sounds on Kids Corner to a sold-out room and had a blast with families from all across our listening area!
The response was so strong that we hosted a second Kids Corner Music Festival in November, taking it to Delaware and World Cafe Live at The Queen in Wilmington. Over 800 people joined us for some great new music for families!
