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

Shaw (Watha T. Daniel) Library

1630 7th St. NW

Washington, D.C. 20001

Take 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.

D.C. Music Salon is film series/book club about different topics related to music, featuring discussions with expert guests. We show films and have discussions with musicians, filmmakers, authors and other fellow music lovers. These aren’t lectures, and all are welcome to join the conversation. Most meetings start with a quick introduction of a guest or topic, then show appropriate footage; we may discuss a relevant film or book and likely ask questions of the expert guests. Washington, DC, especially the Shaw neighborhood, has a musical heritage second to none and our salon celebrates it. However, not every session is dedicated to D.C. All are encouraged to attend!
