LIVE AT THE SCANDLING CAFE - 11am to 1pm - first week of class!

Join WHWS for Fridays Live at the Scandling Cafe as we broadcast live from the Scandling Center's Fireplace Lounge (between the Scandling Cafe and the main entrance to the Center) from 11am to 1pm every weekday the first week of class.  That's Monday August 30th through Friday September 3rd.

Speaking of Friday, Friday afternoon we'll be on the Quad for Involvement Expo!  Come see us there!

No matter what day it is, we'll be live on 105.7, playing requests, interviewing folks, hosting open mic, and - of course - giving away free swag.  C'mon, everyone loves a free t-shirt!   And hey, maybe we can convince FATSC host Lindsay B. to tango with her boyfriend again!  :-)   If you're an HWS student, you've got no excuse!  Get over to the Scandling Center for lunch and hang out with WHWS!
