Well folks, it’s that time of year again when we do our best to bring our listeners aboard to show some support for WHPC, 90.3 FM.
All of us working here at the station are a team, so we are certainly not competing with one another. Fundraising is about achieving our inclusive goals, and that is exactly why Heidy and I are here today.
But, just because we have a job to do does not mean that we cannot do our job, so we’re going to stick with our Alternative Top 40/Top 500 of the Top 40 by featuring a related alternate plan. We will be playing singles from the era that we started covering at the start of 2023 – which is to say we will cover top 40 singles from my first book, American Hit Radio, the same book that got me a spot on WHPC about 25 years ago! For about 10 years, we’ve been playing entire albums, so while we do our best to bring is some money for the station, figure we can have some fun playing singles from the ‘starting point’ of our album playlist.
