HALLOWEEN at WHFR: Trick or Treat Grab Bags, Jeecy and the Jungle on MOTOR, and DJ Named Slickback and gh0st on THE MIX
WHFR knows that kids of all ages love to celebrate HALLOWEEN (Thursday Oct, 31) and we have lots of great TREATS for all day. First, we have our annual WHFR TRICK OR TREAT GRAB BAG - call during one of our live shows 313-845-9676 option 1 and say "Trick or Treat" and we will send you one of our grab bags. OR you can email us - firstname.lastname@example.org - and include "Trick or Treat" in the subject line. Then, no trick, we have the final shows hosted by Margaret and Roger before they take an extended break from WHFR (and the metro-Detroit area...we will miss you!). Make sure you check out Margaret and Roger's shows: GO ROG, BLUESTIME, GLOBAL VILLAGE, and MOTOR. On MOTOR, check out the live performance by Jeecy and the Jungle at 5pm. Later on THE MIX with BAM, DJ Named Slickback and gh0st will be spinning live. So spend HALLOWEEN with WHFR all day and evening!
WHFR would like to thank all of the vendors and all of the customers who came out to the 6th Annual WHFR Record Show. It was a fun time looking through all the different record and cd bins and finding musical treasures. Thanks to WBFH for donating their vinyl collection to WHFR - the collection benefited WHFR greatly and vendors and customers alike had a great time looking through the Biff's collection. The 7th Annual WHFR Record Show will be announce later in 2014 (we still need to recover from this one)!
We are very excited that the 6th Annual WHFR Record Show is only a week way. We have a wide variety of returning and new vendors for this year's show. We have vendors selling Alternative, Grunge, Indie, Punk, Jazz, Soul, Rock, Metal, Blues, and more. We have vendors selling new and used LP, 45s, CDs, DVDs, VHS, cassettes, and more. We even have vendors selling T'shirts, posters, memorabilia, and other collectables. Make sure you come by the WHFR Record Show on Saturday Oct 26 from 10am - 4pm at the Student Center Building on the main campus of Henry Ford Community College.

Lava Lamps, that weird shaped light that made music sound even cooler, turned fifty this year. And a long forgotten music festival, "The Strawberry Fields Festival" will be remembered with songs by some of the acts that played it. "Theme Attic," the radio show that picks themes and plays music from a variety of genres about selected subjects, will meld both subjects together on John Lennon's birthday. Join host DJ Phil Maq on Wednesday, October 9, at 10:00AM for his clever and unusual takes on music!
Tarek Baydoun, one of the new candidates on the Nov. 5 ballot for Dearborn City Council, will be interviewed today. Podcast will be available from this website immediately after broadcast to listen to anytime; click on Talk Shows--WHFR Journal--(select date).
The federal government is currently shut down, but even when it's working, it sometimes takes decades before the public finds out about something. In July of this year, it was finally admitted that there is an official Area 51. So "Theme Attic," the radio show that picks themes and plays music from a variety of genres about selected subjects, will play a few songs about the government, and then examine some of the quirky music about extraterrestrial life. Join host DJ Phil Maq on Wednesday, October 2, at 10:00AM for his clever and unusual takes on music!
Butch Witkowski joins host David Twichell in this installment of We Are Not Alone. Mr. Witkowski has a background in law enforcement, mainly homicide. He is a Former Chief Investigator and State Section Director for MUFON of Pennsylvania. Today, he is Director of the UFO Research Center of Pennsylvania, a group of professionals who have organized to perform in-depth investigations of UFO and abduction phenomena including startling reports of human mutilations, which mirror the evidence found at the scenes of cattle mutilation.
We're almost halfway through the week, so there's still plenty of GREAT artist spotlights still left on WHFR! Check out all of our shows to learn more about your favorite musicians, and some that could become new favorites!
