I want to say thanks again to Robbie for sharing these tapes.
This tape from Diane is very fine indeed. It's got great mid 80's tunes 'HFS was pioneering back in the day.  Along with some all time favorites of mine.

WHFS 102.3 DAVID, The Blizzard of Feb 11 1983, Shared by Jim

Our new good buddy Jim sent us another email detailing this WHFS tape from Feb 11 1983 that he shared.
 Here's the text:

This tape is interesting for the music mix of course, but also for what was going on outside. On Friday, February 11, 1983 the Washington DC area was buried in one of the largest blizzards in recent DC history. According to NOAA: This storm beat the Presidents Day Storm and was the second greatest snowfall of record for the Washington area (at the time). It covered an unusually large portion of Virginia and Maryland with more than a foot of snow. The storm set a new 24 hour snowfall record in Lynchburg, Virginia, with 14.6 inches, Roanoke with 18.6 inches and Baltimore, Maryland with 22.8 inches. Parts of Northern Virginia measured as much as 30 inches on the ground. Washington, DC officially recorded 17 inches at National Airport, but 2 feet of snow fell in surrounding suburbs. Winds gusted over 25 mph all day on February 11 causing drifts up to five feet. The heavy snow and winds paralyzed the region.

Meanwhile, David was on the air at 102.3 FM playing the likes of Simple Minds, Peter Gabriel, David Bowie, After the Fire, Elvis Costello, The Jam, The Fixx, Dream Syndicate, Malcolm McLaren, Grace Jones, Icehouse, U2, Talking Heads, Robert Palmer, Blancmange, The Teardrop Explodes, and others.

WHFS 102.3 FM October 1981 With David Behind The Mic.

Now this is what makes this blog biz worth all the work. Jim shared two 60 minute tapes for me to share today. Here's his verbage from today's email:


Thanks for your reply and offer to post the links to my HFS tapes.

I’ve posted the first set of tape/.mp3 files up on zippyshare.  So feel free to link to them when you get the opportunity.

These four files contain two 60 minute cassettes worth of WHFS 102.3 FM with David behind the mic.  Both tapes are from October 1981, although I’m uncertain whether they were taped the same day.  Regardless, file A flows into B and file C flows into D.  An added bonus is that I let the tapes roll through the back announcing, news features, and commercials so you get the whole HFS experience.

Hope to have more files ready soon.

Tape 2

How sweet is that? Thanks so much Jim!!

What This Is All About

I've been collecting live music from various sources since the mid to late 70's. Radio shows, TV broadcasts, radio show pre-FM CD's and vinyl LP's and some trades. Most of the shows posted here, I recorded and ripped myself. I always had top of the line stereo equipment and cassette and open reel recorders for those on air broadcasts.

I've downloaded plenty of bootlegged concerts from various blogs. As a rule I will only post stuff from my collection and not what is already available out there.

I also post out of print CDs and LPs from my collection.
I will repost from my readers anything someone sends me as long as it is either out of print or something that's not from someone else's blog. If you want to share a link for a cool item on your blog, or someone else's, please feel free to post it in the comments........

Enjoy and please leave a comment and pass this blog along.

Can you believe that so many out there are starving for the old WHFS? Amazing!

If you leave a comment, how about using a nickname instead of Anonymous. At least make up something please. Thanks!

I have reconsidered my position...and will re-upload dead links, so long as you go to that particular post and make the request from the comments page...
