Two challenging podcasts are selected for this week: (1) "How Biased Is Your Media?" from Freakonomics Radio (Stephen J. Dubner)--When it comes to politics and media, the left argues that the right is more biased than the left while the right argues that the left is more biased than the right. Who’s right?.
It is with deep sadness that we share the news that our own WHFR staff member James Grant, respected staff member and host of the Wednesday morning 10am "Urban Rock Radio" show, passed away unexpectedly Thursday. In what was to be his final show on the air the previous morning, James was his usual professional, happy and positive self, excited to share his love of music with everyone. We will be presenting our own version of "Urban Rock Radio" for the last time this Wednesday, February 29th, at 10am with some of our own WHFR staff members paying tribute in James' memory. Please listen.
