    I think they were having fun with me anyway. My 'thing' as far as they were interested was cello or 'bowed' instrument strings. So they'd give shirts with those in mind...

    Until someone got wind that I had a secret alter ego.

    Suddenly their electric string shirts started showing up at rehearsal. You think elementary school children can be cruel....try a bunch of orchestra snobs who think one of their own has defected to the dark side.

    I always liked the old Dean Markley stickers with something dirty hidden in them, like nekkid legs sticking out of the hay in the loft. Can't find a good pic, though.

    Edit: See next post.

    I liked the decal you got with Dean Markley strings 100% based on the knees in the hayloft. 20191202_072812.jpg

    If you lived in the D.C. area back in the 70s and/or 80s, you knew right away that someone had his "ears on" when you saw this bumper sticker.

    Oh yeah, here's another recollection of the station, featured on t-shirts (I had one).

    Not music related, but back in the early 80's there was a heavily customised Yellow Ford van in our area. Flame paintwork across the front and sides, chrome exhausts each side along the tread board, blacked out windows. And a sticker like this on the back....

    WHFS had more influence on my musical tastes than any other radio station, ever

    I haven't seen "Nuke Gay Whales for Jesus" on the hatch of a boxy Volvo in a few decades.

    In my youth I always loved the bumper sticker from Houston's AOR station. It was a pretty good station. F1852C32-064E-41CE-8162-258C5B8376E4.jpeg

    Yeah, buddy! We had these stickers on everything. If you used a black marker, it could be altered to say, uh, something else. But this is a family board, so I'll leave that as an exercise to the reader.

    Man, they were our friends every day. Lopez in the morning. "Mad Dog" Tony Colter (who passed away just this year) at night. Sarah Fleischer. It was such great radio.

    Hammerjacks! Home of Kix. Everybody played there. Crack the Sky! The very best place to see The Ramones. One of the greatest rock clubs of all time. Truly legendary.

    Weasel, Damien, and all the rest. Alternative when it was really alternative. "Mad Dog" Tony Colter even did a short stint there after 98 Rock, but classic rock was really his bag. It was the only time after Valley Girl that I heard Frank Zappa on the radio. I turned his show on one evening, only to hear Camarillo Brillo, and I knew Frank had passed.

    I was listening to HFS on the day they changed formats to Latin music. They just changed mid stream. Unfortunately, they were a shadow of their former selves long before that happened.
