D.C. Music Salon: The Story of WHFS 102.3FM

Shaw (Watha T. Daniel) Library

7 p.m.
We will take you on a trip back to the '60s, '70s and '80s when free form, progressive rock radio was in its heyday… HFS was more than just a local radio station, it was the voice of a generation. Hear from musicians, DJs Weasel, Cerphe, Josh, Adele, Thom and more–and fans as they reflect on a time when the music united a tribe who spoke out via the radiowaves about war, equality, and the times. Filmmaker Jay Schlossberg and special guests will be on hand to show parts of this film and swap stories on what made this station legendary.
