The WHFR Journal - Tuesday, 2/22/22 9am Special Edition - Tuskegee Airmen Presentation

The WHFR Journal - Special Edition

Due to the recent inclement weather, WHFR presents a special edition of the WHFR Journal, Tuesday morning, February 22 at 9am. As part of Henry Ford College and WHFR's celebration of Black History Month we present “The History of the Tuskegee Airmen: Their Contributions to the Military and Society”. The speaker will be Retired Major William Burnett, the founder and president of the Macon-Thomas West Bloomfield Chapter of Tuskegee Airmen. The Tuskegee Airmen are America’s first Black pilots and airmen who served in the U.S. Armed Forces, during World War II. Their strength of character, courage, and ability to triumph over adversity serves as a means to inspire others to rise above the obstacles in their own lives and achieve their goals. Before the Tuskegee Airmen, no African-American had ever been a U.S. military pilot. Join us this week at this special time, Tuesday morning at 9, and at our usual time of Friday, 1pm for the WHFR Journal at 89.3FM and here at whfr.fm.

Henry Ford Campus Closed - Classical Programming

The challenging weather is causing an interruption to our regular programming. Henry Ford College shut down Thursday afternoon and, when this happens, our DJs aren't allowed to come in to do their shows. We hope to return to regular programming at 10 AM Saturday morning, but that is dependent on the college reopening.

In the meantime, please enjoy our classical programming and stay safe and warm.

Tony Sivalelli is the guest on We Are Not Alone. Tony has looked into the possibility of what he refers to as “Not-of-this-Earth Intelligences” for over 25 years.

Join us at 2 PM on February 7th to hear what he has learned through remote viewing, a practice sanctioned by the US pentagon for many years.

At the age of 88, radio-TV actress Gloria McMillian passed away this past week. She is probably best known for her role as Harriet Conklin on the Eve Arden comedy OUR MISS BROOKS. opposite Richard Crenna. "Brooks" was a long running hit on both radio and television and some 150 episodes of the radio show exist.

FM Signal Update

WHFR Loyal Listeners,

Great news! Today we took the first steps to being back on the air at full strength on 89.3FM. After our new antenna was installed on our tower this afternoon, we notice a significant improvement in our FM signal. That means you can once again enjoy our carefully-crafted independent, non-commercial programming near and (somewhat) far from the campus of Henry Ford College.
