When Rachael Davis first opened her mouth to sing she had clear tone, sharp control, an extensive range and a keen understanding about the nature of a tune, which were all unusual for a two-year-old. At five-years-old she learned to sing harmony to the mountain songs her mother sang to her, at eight she earned five dollars for her first paying gig with the family band Lake Effect. At nine-years-old Rachael took up piano and started writing the songs that would ultimately prime her for her future as a songwriter.

25 YEARS!--Happy Birthday WHFR!

WHFR-FM began regular broadcasting on Dec. 20, 1985. Now streaming on the internet, accessible to computers and smartphones everywhere, with many shows archived regularly to our website, WHFR is a miracle of local involvement, initiative, and service.

I remember that first day at the transmitter atop the Liberal Arts Building at HFCC when we flipped the switch on: just as snowy and cold as today--but we could feel the excitement beginning. Thanks to all our loyal listeners and community supporters along the way!

Jay Korinek, WHFR Station Advisor (1976 to present)
