HFC’s student-run radio station WHFR-FM (89.3) will host its 13th Annual WHFR Record Show – its first since 2019 – on Saturday, Oct. 15, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. in the atrium of the Student & Culinary Arts Center (Building M) on the main campus.

The WHFR Record Show has become one of the premier shows of its kind in the Midwest, attracting vendors from the tri-state area and Canada. This show will have thousands of rare and mainstream records, CDs, DVDs, video cassettes, and other forms of music and movie memorabilia for sale by independent, local, and out-of-state vendors. There will be door prizes, giveaways, and more.

“It’s feels so good to be hosting a WHFR Record Show again,” said WHFR General Manager Susan McGraw. “Many of your favorite vendors will be returning, along with some new vendors, so get ready to start digging through those bins!”

60% of WHFR-FM operating budget comes from donations

As a non-commercial, volunteer-staffed station, WHFR-FM is not licensed to sell commercials and must rely heavily on support from HFC and from individual donations to operate. More than 60 percent of its operating budget comes from donor support.

Since it began as a student radio club with a closet-sized room for public address operation in 1985, WHFR-FM has developed into an award-winning, live, 24/7 broadcast and Internet outlet. On-air formats include blues, world, classical, avant jazz, indie rock, alternative/modern rock, techno, urban, big band, rockabilly, Americana, local news and views, classic radio drama, and much more. All music shows highlight new releases, independent labels, and local artists.


The WHFR Record Show is open to the public. Admission is as follows:

  • 9:00 to 10:00 a.m.: $10 (early bird admission)
  • 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.: $1-$5 (sliding scale admission)
  • All HFC students and employees are admitted for free, provided you have a valid HFC identification card
