Harper College Radio Station a Finalist for Chicago’s Overall Best

What does 100-watt 88.3FM Harper Radio have in common with Chicago radio powerhouses like WXRT (93.1FM) and WBEZ (91.5FM)?

Besides being on the lower end of the FM frequency spectrum, the Chicago Reader has named the Harper College Radio Station as a finalist in their “Best of Chicago” online poll. WHCM is one of only five (5) radio stations to make the final cut for entry in the poll. The other stations listed (in addition to ‘XRT & ‘BEZ) are Chirpradio (107.1FM) and Vocalo Radio (91.1FM).

Part of what makes WHCM different is a commitment to playing local music. In addition to The Local Music Show featuring the best bands and artists from around Chicago, Harper Radio is dedicated to featuring music from the community throughout the day.

The Reader poll is open now through noon on Wednesday, February 15th with the winners announced in the April 6th edition of the publication.
