Latest Arrivals to Our Music Library

Hello Loyal Listeners,

WHFR continues to broadcast our Classical satellite feed while HFC does everything possible to maintain the safety of students, faculty and staff on campus, which means our DJs can’t quite yet get into the station. However, we are still receiving plenty of music from great independent artists. Here’s a little taste of what you can expect to hear when the DJs get back behind the board!:

Frankie Animal - Peaches - Frankie Animal is an alternative-pop/rock band from Estonia, with a core of three musicians. Through persistent work and having performed at many important festivals in the region such as Tallinn Music Week and Positivus but also farther at Eurosonic Noorderslag and Waves Vienna, they have established themselves as one of the leading alternative bands in Estonia.

Jackie Hayes - Eye 2 Eye - Jackie Hayes (born August 17, 1999) is a Waukegan-raised, Chicago-based musician detangling the tremors of her life to articulate the perils of young adulthood. Her first musical experiences happened in the church worship band, where her piano skills were hailed as a gift from God. There’s an irony to the divinity, considering Hayes was kicked out of the worship band for being a nonbeliever. Rejecting doctrine and dogma, Hayes detoured onto her own musical journey in near-secrecy with fierce opposition from her parents. She spent her adolescence sneaking into shows, working service and retail jobs to fund her own career. Her self-published music gained her a following for the inviting nature of her vulnerable candor.

Hunter Ellis - Face Tapes - Hunter Ellis grew up in Northern California and got interested in music when he started playing the violin and guitar. In high school he joined an instrumental post-rock band called The Coma Lilies, who recorded two albums, did many west coast tours, and two cross country tours.

Thank you for your continued support, and we look forward “Making Waves” in person as soon as possible!
