DEARBORN — The Henry Ford College student-run radio station will host its seventh annual WHFR Record Show on from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Oct. 18 in the Student & Culinary Arts Center on the main campus, 5101 Evergreen.

The show will offer thousands of rare and mainstream records, CDs, videos and other forms of music memorabilia for sale by independent, local and out-of-state vendors. There will also be door prizes, giveaways, and more.

The event is open to the public. General admission is between $1 to $5 on a sliding scale with an early bird admission for $5 from 9 to 10 a.m. All proceeds benefit WHFR-FM 89.3. Admission is free for students with valid student identification.

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

The station began as a student radio club with a closet-sized room for public address operation in 1985. Since then, 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, techno, big band, rockabilly, Americana, noise, local news and views, and classic radio drama.

“We are extremely proud of providing almost 30 years of successful and award-winning broadcasting to the community,” WHFR general manager Susan McGraw said.
