The Fall Football Chopping Block—and Pre-emption for the 75th Birthday of WHRB

Harvard AthleticsEvery fall Hillbilly at Harvard suffers some curtailment because of Harvard football.  This year there are three night games (two on Fridays), and two mid-afternoon games (including The Game at Yale!) so only five shows will be affected: see below.  For late risers and those of you in earlier time zones, remember that you can record HAH and listen whenever you like.  That goes for all of you, of course; see HERE.

whrb_logoFootball aside, on Saturday October 3rd, WHRB will be in the throes of celebrating its 75th Anniversary, and as part of those celebrations WHRB alumni will gather to spend the morning  reminiscing on-air about their experiences at the station as undergraduates.  Hillbilly at Harvard will be pre-empted, and country music will be in short supply, but some long-time listeners to HAH and other WHRB programming may enjoy listening in to conversation about WHRB, stemming from the days when it was a closed-circuit campus AM station, then a metro-Boston FM outlet, to its presence today on the World Wide Web.
