Join WHFR.FM

What is eight sessions of two hours and can prepare you to join our volunteer staff and maybe even host a show of your own for a truly unique noncommercial FM radio and internet station?

t’s the “WHFR Staff Training Class,” of course, offered every Fall, Winter, and Spring semester at Henry Ford College. For academic credit, enroll in TCM 189, one hour credit, no prerequisite. For an identical experience, but non-credit (Pass or Fail), contact HFC’s M-TECH program to enroll in “Radio Station Workshop.”

In the class, you''ll learn about the station and FCC rules and procedures, equipment operation, basic performance skills, and much more. Either for credit or non-credit, the basic class itself costs the same as one hour of academic credit, and the content and meeting times are the same: Wednesday evenings from 6:30 to 8:20 PM, or Thursday afternoons from 1:10 to 3:00 PM--for eight weeks during the Fall and Winter semesters (seven during Spring).

For more course information, check out the HFCC website (www.hfcc.edu) or contact our General Manager, Susan McGraw at 313-845-9842, or via e-mail: whfr-gm@hfcc.edu. For non-credit M-TEC enrollment information, call 313-317-6600.

Did you ever listen to a DJ, talk show host, or newsperson on the radio say to yourself, "Boy, I''d like to do that someday!"? That day might be today!

Hello WHFR Listeners,

After being a WHFR Staff Member since 1992 and WHFR's Operation Manager since 1998, I have taken a position at Governors State University in University Park, Illinois (just south of Chicago). I will be a tenure-track Assistant Professor in Media Studies focusing on Audio Storytelling at Governors State. Additionally, I will be developing a radio station for them: first, an internet station and then a broadcast station. I wouldn't be able take this position if it wasn't for all my years at WHFR and the support from the staff, officers, and management.

We apologize to those of you who are attempting to tune in to the station on the FM signal. Once again, heavy rains have caused an issue with our transmitter. We plan to have the situation addressed as soon as possible, but meanwhile, please continue to enjoy the music from the website's streaming option.

Thank you for your support of unique, non-commercial radio.

Residents of Dearborn who experienced losses due to a flooding/sewer backup issue at your location on June 25 or 26 have until Monday September 13 to file a separate claim with FEMA to receive potential financial assistance from the federal government even if they have filled out a form with the City.

With the recent storms blowing through Metro-Detroit, WHFR sustained some weather damage to our transmitter.

In the last 24 hours we have had issues with the power to our transmitter which has caused periodic interruptions to our broadcast single at 89.3 on the FM dial.

The good news is you can continue to enjoy the music from our web site. We are working on the issue with the FM signal and will be there to serve the community again soon.
