August 1, 2011 at 8:55 AM (PT)
The Alternative Rock music BALTIMORE grew up with and the personalities who made it popular return to the local airwaves when "HFS" debuts at noon TODAY. The station will feature tracks from artists such as FOO FIGHTERS, RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS, PEARL JAM, COLDPLAY, INCUBUS and GREEN DAY, along with live and local hosts presenting the music. Listeners can tune-in to the station beginning at noon on WWMX 106.5 HD2 or 97.5 FM. The station will continue to be streamed online at www.hfs975.com or via the RADIO.COM app for a variety of mobile devices.
SVP/Market Mgr. BOB PHILIPS said, "The music made popular by HFS has lived on long after the station went off the air. HFS has built a loyal following online and now those listeners can have more access than ever before as we bring back one of BALTIMORE's well-known brands to radio stations across the dial. HD Radio Technology allows us to offer additional channels of programming alongside our over the air stations, and through a relationship with the owners of 97.5 we have this unique opportunity to expand the reach of the HFS programming."
Personalities familiar to the HFS audience return to anchor the station’s programming, including TIM VIRGIN, who was first heard on the station in 2000; GINA CRASH, a well-know HFS personality from the late '90s; JENN MARINO, longtime radio personality CHRIS EMRY and NECI. NECI has the notoriety of being the only DJ who has hosted every HFStival -- all 19 of them.
HFS listeners will also hear LOVELINE WITH MIKE & DR. DREW weeknights from 10p-midnight.
