This is so cool that you're posting WHFS tapes from this time period. 'HFS was so influential in the developement of my musical tastes! I remember being blown away with their unconventional selections. Songs like The Beatles' "Everybody's Got Something to Hide", Jimi Hendrix "You Got Me Floatin", and all of the really great cutting edge punk/new wave of the times. I also fondly remember the Sunday night reggae show followed by the Musical Starstreams show (I think that's the one - before that musical style became commonly known as "New Age" and turned to gloopy shit). I used to record those shows on an 8-track deck. Thanks for sharing these up!

amp,
It's feedback like yours that motivates me to go through all the stuff it takes to get these tapes out there for everyone to share. WHFS was a HUGE influence in musical tastes. Ufortunately I never really got into HFS before 1976 or so. Before that is was Black Sabbath, AC DC, UFO, Scorpions, Blues Oyster Cult, etc...Stll love those bands, but my music exposure was so broadened by this station, and it's a shame there's nothing even close nowadays. WRNR 103.5 FM Annapolis, MD, did it for a decade after HFS was dieing a slow death. I'll be getting some of those out on here soon, so stay tuned. Thanks again for the comments amp!

Yes i am AMP's younger brother and HIS 8-track tapes of WHFS were in turn influential to my own musical tastes. I still have a special part of my memory brain labeled "8 track" which includes the few WHFS prog rock tapes, motley crue, ratt and a few other funny ones. If I were older at that time, I probably would have been taping alot of WHFS. Who could have known that the few truly progressive FM stations would all disappear and never be replaced??? lame. but thanks for all your work, and for taping these gems in the first place! Tape digitizing is a very time-consuming process that rarely gets the appreciation it deserves.

xmp,
I always knew when I was taping these that they would always be special. And that is why I have so many from 1983, that was the year that WHFS announced it would be shutting down. I knew I had to get as much taped as possible before they would be lost forever. Thankfully they were resurrected as 99.1 in Annapolis and were a fine station for about a decade, then the station was sold and slowy eroded into corporate crud. That's when WRNR takes over and carried the torch. More on them soon. Of course nothing beats the original!

I have a couple of the WHFS "Real Rockin' Metal" shows, a short lived series aired on Saturday nights. I'll get those on my list to post.

Thanks very much; I just downloaded this (a friend mailed me the link). If I had known 20-25 years ago how much I would someday miss the old WHFS I would have taped as many hours as I could, but since I didn't, I'm really glad you did and posted some. Will come back and download more later.

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...
