Typically around this time of year, WHFR would be preparing to participate in Dearborn Homecoming and inviting you to visit our tents at the festival to meet your favorite DJs, peruse our purged CD collection, and grab some free WHFR swag. This year we are asking you to do something that is not quite so interactive, but is sure to be just as entertaining: attend the Dearborn Homecoming Virtual Online Fundraiser, taking place 10 a.m. - 9 p.m. on August 7th, 8th & 9th.

The event will include interviews with representatives from the Dearborn Homecoming charity partners, scenes from previous homecomings, and details on how to donate. Each 9 p.m. showing concludes with a collage of previous year's fireworks displays (additional detailed activities listed below).

Here is the main link to donate and with more info about the event. To donate to WHFR, make sure you scroll down and choose “WHFR Radio/ Henry Ford College”

We know that many of you are big fans of our traditional CD purge, where we offer older CDs and records for $1-per-disc donations. Those funds directly finance WHFR's operating expenses (most of which still exist even though we aren't actually in the studio these days). Sadly, the CD purge isn't happening this year, but you can still support WHFR directly by donating to the station anytime at

We hope that you will attend the Dearborn Homecoming Virtual Online Fundraiser. Also, being an online event, this is an especially great opportunity to reach out to former Dearborn residents/Detroit locals and WHFR/Henry Ford College alumni who may have moved away and would like a little taste of home! Please feel free to share this info by posting to social media and/or personally inviting friends, family, and anyone else who you think would be interested in this event. Thank you!

DJ SPOTLIGHT SERIES: Hello From Mrs. Robinson of the ONE PLUS ONE SHOW!

WHFR is pleased to feature a new WHFR DJ Spotlight Series for our home page so our DJs can stay connected with you while we're temporarily away from the Studio A chair. You might find music reviews, suggestions for staying active, backstories about how we got into the radio business, and some nice comments to help us all stay connected. Enjoy!

I have been off the air for personal reasons since Summer of 2019 and I really hoped to be back on the air in early 2020 but COVID-19 happened. That hasn't stopped me from listening to lots and lots of music to get me through 2020 (and the end of 2019). I have discovered music through Bandcamp, record review write ups and just expanding on an artist's catalogue.

Like many of you, sleep has been rough and I have found these artists and albums have help me through some sleepless nights: MAX RICHTER – SLEEP (over 8 hours of music); the WINDY & CARL catalogue including their new release ALLEGIANCE & CONVICTION; HILDUR GUDNADOTTIR (CHERNOBYL soundtrack and SECOND CHILDHOOD with BJ Nilsen & Stilluppsteypa), WILLIAM BASINSKI'S DISINTEGRATION LOOPS, and VALENTINA GONCHOROVA (Ukrainian violin experimentalist). This mix of classical, soundtracks, ambient, and experimental music has made sleep issues almost a thing of the past (almost).

One of the strangest discoveries was from a Facebook Page called “The Same Video of Shaq & His Family Dancing to Various Songs” and you guested it – people post various songs set to same video of Shaq & his family dancing in the kitchen. It was on this page I heard “Sudno (Boris Ryzhy)” by MOLCHAT DOMA. This Belarussian synthpop band has made me excited about some non-soundtrack, classical, ambient music for a change. MOLCHAT DOMA's two releases – ETAZHI and S KRISH NASHIH DOMOV while original released in 2018 & 2017 respectively was just released in the United States early 2020! This lead me to searching out other synth-pop and indie rock from Ukraine, Russia and the surrounding areas (PLOHO, DAKH DAUGHTERS, and GIL'OTINA).


Great article by our Web Guy: Ryan Youngs about the band WEREWOLF JONES:
I listen to music for the way it makes me feel first, and everything else comes second. Perhaps this is why a band named Werewolf Jones caught my attention at a show just before things started to shut down due to the pandemic. Werewolf Jones took the stage as the late act for Saturday night of the Hamtramck Music Festival at Outer Limits. Their sound was awesome! It was fast, it was loud, it was full of fuzz, and reminded me of listening to old hardcore punk tapes decades ago. They are definitely taking cues from the older bands in the genre like Bad Brains, Minor Threat, and fellow Detroit area brethren Negative Approach. As far as sound goes, my first thoughts around instrumentation were pre-hip-hop Beastie Boys as it was so raw and fast, but after a little more thought early Negative Approach might be a little more inline. Vocally, my first thoughts were of Tony Reflex of the Adolescents if he had deeper voice and yelled more, haha. At any rate, if you like hardcore punk music from the early 80's or if you just want to go out and see a rock show that is super high energy but not at a massive venue check these guys out. Since live music shows aren't much of a thing right now, you can find Werewolf Jones music on Spotify,, and
