XPN Drops Y-Rock from the Air

XPN Drops Y-Rock from the Air

We were sad to see in the City Paper that XPN had experienced a bunch of layoffs which included Josh T. Landow, Y-Rock’s champion through all its media format changes in the past few years. Gone with Landow are the Wednesday-through-Friday evening on-air programs that Y-Rock contributed to the station. It amazes us with how quickly the indie rock scene is growing, especially in our own city, that we are still losing a voice in our own community. DIY maybe overused these days, but it still remains a necessary part in fostering the arts.
We have also received many emails regarding Roger LaMay’s statement on how he’s particular stoked about them starting a blog that is "100 percent focused on local music". Our response: What took you so long? We are glad that we are making an impact on our beloved music community and that more people are following in our footsteps. There are plenty of music lovers out there who can choose whatever they want to read. We all read different publications and blogs. We all read some of the same publications and blogs. And if you’ve been paying attention to what we write about, do you really think that whatever XPN’s blog with the “Philly-centric name” will actually cover the exact same shit that we do and in the way that we do it? We hope not. If they do, then we might have some beef. ;o) (Photo by Evan M. Lopez, City Paper) - The Deli Staff
