The alternative rock music Baltimore grew up with and the personalities
who made it popular return to the local airwaves when “HFS” debuts on Monday,
August 1. 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 12 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.
Bob Philips, Senior Vice President and Market Manager of CBS
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 90’s, Jenn Marino, longtime radio
personality Chris Emery, and Neci. Neci has the notoriety of
being the only DJ who has hosted every HFStival—all nineteen of
HFS listeners will also hear “Loveline with Mike &
Dr. Drew,” an entertaining and informative show offering advice to
callers about relationships and addiction, weeknights from 10:00PM to Midnight.
