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!:


RSilver Movie - NSilver Movie - The six song self-titled EP was recorded over a two-week period in early 2020 at Vision Quest studios with the help of former Brian Jonestown Massacre member Rob Campanella and local psych-rock outfit Triptides. All songs were written during the fall of 2019 which Ray recalls as “some kind of writing frenzy” that had been preceded by a long period of indifference towards music. Most of the EP’s songs were recorded live, with overdubs punched in towards the end of the sessions. Recording sessions for a follow up release are scheduled for November.

Film School - We Weren't Here - What emerges from beneath the waves of the album’s psychedelic dream pop are bittersweet themes of a year lived in suspended animation: anticipation, separation, regret, revelation.

Kid Kapichi - This Time Next Year - With momentum building, Kid Kapichi dropped their hotly anticipated EP Sugar Tax in July 2019. In the latter part of the year, the band made their mark at Reading & Leeds Festivals, sold-out headline shows in London and Brighton, and toured Europe with Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes in the autumn.



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

In addition to the other shows returning to the WHFR airwaves, a station staple is expanding to a third hour. “Theme Attic,” with DJ Host Phil Maq—now in its eleventh year, will continue to supply its offbeat mixture of eccentric and eclectic Rock, Blues, Folk, Jazz, and too many other genres to mention! They all get wrapped around a musical subject on Wednesdays from 1PM-4PM ET! The songs will lean heavily on new and/or independent artists, and many will be local! Some selectively aged “nuggets” will also make an occasional appearance! Plus, there will most often be some kind of countdown!

I’m Andy Parks the host of “Strictly Gospel” and we’re expanding our show to Tuesday afternoons from 1:00-4:00 pm EST. The extra hour will allow for us to introduce more of the incredible artists. There is so much new music, and we will explore it all together. All things gospel, that is…”Strictly Gospel”.

You can now hang with us an extra hour as Radio Vault Special Edition expands to three jam-packed hours of "stuff" you can't hear anywhere else starting on September 28th. It's now on 10AM-1:00PM. This week we feature radio private eyes.
Johnny Dollar was an insurance investigator with an expense account. The show aired on the CBS Radio Network. It was the last network drama, along with Suspense, to air on network radio from the so-called golden era of broadcasting.
Beloved by collectors today, we have already presented random episodes of Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar.

The WHFR internet stream (whfr.fm) is back up and running. Our audio signal on 89.3FM is still spotty due to the moisture in the broadcast tower/antenna area from our recent heavy rains. We're working to solve that issue, so thanks for your patience. We appreciate our loyal listeners!

As of about 1:30 this afternoon, there was a power outage on the campus of Henry Ford College that took both our stream and on air signal off the air.

We hope this problem is solved soon and we can get back to providing you the great programing you rely on us for.

Returning to the WHFR airwaves this Friday, September 17, 2021, from 8pm-10pm is Space is the Place with your host Tom Wilson. The program, sidelined since 2020 when the Covid lockdown began, was just shy of celebrating 15 years on the air, and we're thrilled to have it back on WHFR. Please join Tom as he continues providing a great mix of rarely-heard avant-garde and experimental music along with its various sub-genres. That's the return of Space is the Place, Fridays from 8pm-10pm, only on WHFR-FM.

Quartermaster Joseph Foster was on deck of a Coast Guard cutter in 1968 when he saw three objects careening at 3500 miles per hour over his Coast Guard cutter, the Mellon. Just ten minutes later, he learned of the sinking of a Soviet submarine, carrying three armed nuclear ballistic missiles and torpedoes, lost with all hands. Actually, he witnessed at least 4 major UAP events, beginning as early as childhood.  Join our discussion on Monday, Sept. 6 at 2PM. EST.
