Every radio station I’ve worked at is a chapter in my life and WHFS is Chapter One. I’m so proud and grateful to be an alumnus…we pushed the limits of what could be done artistically and creatively on FM.
When you’re part of a great radio station like WHFS, you hope you can be proud of it 30 years down the road, and I am! Radio, when it’s great, is amazing–it changed our lives and there’s a great joy and pleasure celebrating the mojo of a station that so many people loved.
We were part of the journey in late 20th century music, politics and art…we had a tremendous feeling of community and creativity. We were your designated driver, you had to trust us and come along for the musical ride. I might take you up on two wheels around the bend but I always got you home.

Cerphe and HFS are part of the reason I’m in the business! Thanks.
As I understand it, the photo of Lowell George was taken the day before he died. It’s very sad to see how overweight, tired and bloated Lowell looked in the final years of his life, but it was the consequence of his overindulgent lifestyle of binge eating, smoking, drug abuse and heavy drink to cope with the pressures of being the leader, lead singer, chief songwriter, guitarist and record producer for Little Feat.
Lowell was a terrific and very multitalented musician and he also had a brief stint playing rhythm guitar with The Mothers of Invention, led by Frank Zappa.
