Whfs 99.1

Recommended Posts

Hey you guys,


as many of you know, whfs was silenced last week because Infinity Broadcasting decided to replace it with a Spanish station. This is the very station that promoted local and new bands. Please help us bring it back. So far 34,000 people have signed an online petition about the situation and people have protested outside the station. Here's the link for the petition: http://www.petitiononline.com/991hfs/petition.html


If you wish to call Infinity Broadcasting (like many of us have already), here's their number: (212) 846-3939


Thank you so much everyone!

Let it die. Even if you could point out one small good thing the station was doing, it was just that--small. Sure the HFStival was big mega concert, but did YOU discover any of the bands that played there? One of the great things about the WHFS of old was that at any given moment the song coming out of your radio might never be played again, and if your friends didn't hear it, you got to be the one to claim you heard the band--even if the DJ at the station really did have the jump on you. And speaking of DJs, they even got to pick the music they got to play! Sure, some of it sucked, but if it did, you probably didn't hear it more than once.


Maybe radio will never be good again. But there are always new bands who would love for you to be the one who will be able to say "I remember seeing them in that dive bar on..."


Support your local music.

On June 10, 2009, the WHFS alternative format was relaunched as HFS2 once again, now located at WIAD 94.7-HD2 in Bethesda, Maryland and serving the Washington, DC area. It is also available online HERE.


The alternative rock station, WHFS, returned to the airwaves at noon on Monday, August 1, 2011! The first song played was Smashing Pumpkin's "Today." The station is now officially on WWMX-HD2 (106.5 FM) and is translated on W248AO (97.5 FM).[1] W248AO was moved to The Candelabra tower in Baltimore, and the power was increased to 250W.


We can feel young again!
