As we go into the Memorial day weekend, many of us are normally looking forward to a weekend of live electronic music in the heart of Detroit. People come from around the world to see some of the biggest names in EDM at the Movement festival. But not unlike "The Mix" show on WHFR, this year's festival has also been postponed for now. I encourage everyone to take some spare time and go online to the various social media sites and follow your favorite DJ's and mix shows. So many DJs are doing live steams posting downloadable live mixes right now that you are bound to find something from your favorite artists including tons of local content from your favorite DJ's that normally spin on The Mix. "The Mix with Bam radio show" Facebook group is a great place to start your search. Also, don't forget to check out the live streams all weekend long for the "Virtual Movement festival" live at Movement.US Until we can get back live into the mix at WHFR on Thursday nights, stay safe and let the mix continue at home. -BAM

Hi. I’m Joe, host of BIG BAND, BROADWAY AND BEYOND typically every Friday 10am to Noon. The music I play on this programs covers at least 100 years of American popular music. I love what I do at WHFR and looking forward to when normal locally produced programming is back on the air. I am anxious for normal living and entertaining WHFR listeners again.

The concept of RADIO VAULT on Tuesdays at 3:00 is not new. The whole approach, however, is somewhat unique. The current incarnation of the show began on WHFR about 3 years ago. Radio Vault is never scripted. The idea, however, is that it is a HOSTED show, meaning we don't just play the old recordings -- we TALK about them -- even if it's just to announce the original broadcast date. Radio Vault is also not a nostalgia show, per se, but we do respect the historical significance, all while using the latest digital technology to make the audio as clear as possible.

BLUES WITH A FEELING is a lot different from most blues programs, it makes a difference at WHFR.FM. The arrival of this high-quality sound has encouraged listeners to delve into their vaults and find vintage blues that have been languishing for years.

I am Anderson Coleman. I produce and host the program BLUES WITH A FEELING. These blues are an embodiment of expressing one’s deepest feelings.

WHFR has been in trying to stay business as usual during the COVID-19 Pandemic but we have to put the healthy and safety of our WHFR volunteer staff first. Once Gov. Whitmer issued the Michigan-wide “Sheter-In-Place” order, WHFR and Henry Ford College made the decision to have all of our volunteers to stay at home and have our Classical 24 service run 24/7 for the next three weeks. We hope we will be able to back to live local programming after April 13. Enjoy the classical music and thanks for supporting WHFR.

WHFR has a commitment to serve the Dearborn-Detroit community providing music and talk shows that are an alternative to other broadcasters on the radio dial. We will continue this commitment to providing live and local programming while making sure the station is still safe for our volunteers. Many of our shows will be business and usual and you will not notice much of a difference from our programming. BUT, there might be times you will hear Classical 24 when a live DJ is on, another DJ filling in, or a pre-recorded show. WHFR is keeping the station clean and safe for the staff members/volunteers who are well but some of our staff may elect to err on the side of caution and stay home. We want to be an alternative to what all the other broadcasters are playing. Thanks for listening to WHFR and for supporting noncommercial education radio.
