It’s been a longstanding tradition that our WHFR DJs tap into their holiday spirit and create the annual Winter Season Celebration Shows. WHFR will feature these special holiday-themed shows starting at 6pm on December 23, running continuously through 10am on December 26. Be part of this rich tradition while our DJs enjoy the time off to spend with family and friends. Also, December 26th kicks off the last week of 2021, otherwise known on WHFR as "Best Of" week. This last week of the year is when we’ll recap the top artists and songs played throughout 2021.
Local Loyal Listeners, we're sorry to have to share that in light of ongoing technical issues with our FM signal, we have made the difficult decision to power down the FM broadcast on 89.3 for the time being while a permanent solution to this ongoing and intermittent issue is worked on. Unfortunately, this solution requires the ordering, receiving, and installing of major pieces of broadcast equipment, so we can't provide a timetable for when we'll be back up on the FM dial.
Monday, December 6, 2021. 2 – 3 PM EST.
Rev. Michael J. S. Carter is our guest on Monday, Dec. 6. Rev. Carter is an ordained Interfaith Minister, author and alien contactee. His first book, “Alien Scriptures: Extraterrestrials in The Holy Bible”, was number one on Amazon’s list of UFO related books. Author Whitely Strieber referred to the book as, “the best book ever written on the topic”. We discuss his personal experiences and how he was able to assimilate his ET experiences with his religious faith. Join us at 1 PM on Monday, Dec. 6.
We once again apologize for the issues we are having with our transmitter. At this time we are in the process of researching and getting quotes on the equipment that needs replacing so that listeners can enjoy the programming at 89.3 on the FM dial.
In the meantime, please continue to listen through our Listen Live Now option from our website or with the Android app. An app for Apple users should be ready soon. We are also available on the TuneIn app.
Thank you for your support of non-commercial, independent radio.
To our wonderful loyal listeners, artists who submit their music to us for airplay, and the staff and volunteers at WHFR Radio, we wish you a Happy Thanksgiving. We're truly grateful for you all! Have a safe, healthy, and happy holiday for you and your loved ones.
We apologize for the inconvenience, but once again our FM signal is experiencing a problem.
We encourage you to enjoy our special programming via our website, the TuneIn app or the app for Android devices.
We are working on a long term solution to this problem. Please stay tuned.
In this time slot we usually keep it light & lively and our Tuesday 11/16 show is no exception! We're back to 3 jam-packed hours of entertainment & information.
We kick it off first with a rare recording given to us by Detroit radio & education icon, Dick Kernen before he passed away last year. It's part 1 of the 1966 narrative hosted by Jack Benny...."Benny presents the Golden Years of Radio," featuring tons of show clips and routines!
Hello. John Bommarito here letting you know I am filling in Monday for Dom Flo Radio from Noon-2:00 PM playing some of my electronic favorites from the late 80s and early 90s. Songs that sample Metallica, Clannad, and Dream Academy and "O Fortuna." Songs created by electronic instruments. Songs you can dance to. Songs you can chill to. Very different than what anyone would expect from the Acoustic Alternatives guy.
We apologize for the inconvenience, but the weather is wreaking havoc on the FM signal today. Please enjoy our hard working volunteers efforts on our Android app or from the web stream.

Take Two: Roll & Tumble is back on the air. They often ask, “What was the first rock and roll record made?” Some say Rocket 88 by Ike Turner and Jackie Breston from 1951. They called it R&B at the time. Whatever was first, it launched a period of time, from 1951 to the early 70's in music that may be unparalleled in terms of innovation and creativity. Sadly, much of the most creative and influential sounds from this period have been forgotten and ignored by mainstream radio.
