Cerphe on HFS – Chapter One

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.




Come on down to the old Psyche Delly location at 4844 Cordell Avenue and have some chow (brunch or lunch) and meet me and some of your favorite ‘HFS deejays up close ‘n personal. Join me, Weasel, John Hall, Fred Sirkey and others. There is NO cover charge! Click here to register on Facebook. We’ll be talking about Feast Your Ears: The Story of WHFS 102.3 FM, the feature length documentary in production. A Kickstarter kick-off benefit concert is happening Saturday, September 19, 2015 at Villain and Saint in Bethesda. More to come on that!

HFS Community – by Weasel

It was described by a word that we just don’t hear anymore, community. It was something we all felt very much a part of and felt like we were all equal. Common ideals, a common culture a common outlook and to paraphrase Bob Dylan, “the times they were a changin'”. It felt like a whole new town was springing up around us. There were newspapers that reported on our lifestyle, new bands sprang up that played our music, new clubs that featured those bands record stores sold their records and retailers sold the clothes and tools of our life.

And through it all there was a soundtrack of our lives on the radio. WHFS, and that community will never exist again. But now Feast Your Ears: The Story of WHFS 102.3 the movie will bring back the memories and save them for posterity. I hope you will join me and my colleagues for the ride – and join our “tribe” – the HFS Heads!



In case you haven’t heard, I’m still on the radio waves at WTMD, the NPR station in Towson, Maryland. Join me on WTMD 89.7 FM every Friday evening from 7 – 10pm. The program repeats Saturdays from noon to 3pm.

WTMD - Weasel's radio program




Here’s what WTMD has to say about my weekly radio show…

Remember Radio the way it used to be?

Every Saturday afternoon at 12 and Friday nights at 7, the legendary Weasel brings three incredible hours of music and story telling.  Weasel handcrafts long themed sets about news events, pop and American history and whatever else tickles his fancy.Weasel on-air WTMD by Baltimore City Paper

Sets can last long into the hour with Weasel weaving a musical play by play of each tune’s history and importance.  Weasel’s long radio career started during the glory days of WHFS in Bethesda and been a friend and musical guide to generations.

In March, the Baltimore City Paper published an article about me written by Charles Cohen. Click here to read all about it!
