Harpur Radio Workshop, hereafter known as WHRW, is a free-format, educational, and community radio station located on the campus of Binghamton University. WHRW provides non-commercial broadcasting resources for students, staff, faculty, and members of the Southern Tier. The station has been active since 1966. WHRW holds a non-commercial, educational license. This means we have an obligation to act for the benefit of the community, without profiting from our service to them. It also means we are free of the shackles of playing what makes us money. WHRW is required by federal law to follow FCC regulations. However, we strive to maintain an atmosphere free from other restrictions on what you can play, say, or do on the radio.
With our unique programming and approach, WHRW strives to stimulate, educate, and entertain our audience, while also reflecting the diversity of the local and world community. We provide a channel for individuals, artists, groups, issues and music that have been overlooked, suppressed, or underrepresented by other media. Students, staff, faculty, and community members are welcome to volunteer and apprentice to broaden their musical knowledge, as well as learn the operational aspects of running an FCC licensed radio station.
