About WDFH

Listen | Programming | Staff | History | Photos | Commentary | Press

WDFH is the only public radio station in the lower Hudson River Valley.  We are in the category of public radio called community radio.  Community radio stations are noncommercial stations that are owned by independent, non-institutional not-for-profit organizations.  There are only about a few hundred community stations in the United States out of about 15,000 radio stations altogether.  Most of the rest of the country's noncommercial stations are licensed to schools, colleges, universities, and other institutional organizations so community radio is a rare breed in several ways:

  • We're powered by volunteers from the community your friends and neighbors, not a staff of "full-time professionals" who may or may not have any real commitment to the communities the station serves.  Get info on joining the staff as a community volunteer or student intern).

  • We're local and focused so we can be much more responsive to the needs and interests of our communities.

  • We're noncommercial and not beholden to the corporate drive toward the lowest common denominator (info on making your pledge to support WDFH). 

Our music programming includes a freeform mix of progressive and alternative rock, jazz, blues, and folk.  We regularly feature in-studio musical guests.  We also broadcast a significant schedule of news and public affairs programming (schedule).

Public radio stations are institutions in their communities, and we are working to build WDFH so that it can be worthy of that description.

Licensed by the Federal Communications Commission as a noncommercial educational FM radio station, WDFH broadcasts on 90.3 MHz.  Our newly expanded signal the result of a 7 year expansion project completed in early 2009 can now reach about 400,000 potential listeners in the lower Hudson Valley.  You can also listen online from anywhere in the world.
