Q: How long has WHSS been around?

A: WHSS started broadcasting in 1975, and initially played jazz music, relegating rock music to evening broadcasts. The station started playing a mixture of music styles in 1980, and began its' current modern rock/alternative format in 1998.

Q: How can I get my song on WHSS?

A: Mail it to us! We are out to provide our listeners with the best mix of alternative and modern rock music available, period. We do prefer that you send your songs on CD, but MiniDisc and audiotape will also work. Just a side note: if your song has questionable content, we may edit it for broadcast. If you already know it has questionable content, please send us a radio edit if at all possible.

Q: How can I be a DJ on WHSS?

A: If you're a Hamilton High School student, you are eligible to be part of the Broadcasting Arts Career Education program, which is a three-year program that teaches students entry-level skills in radio broadcasting and audio/video production. For more information on the program, email David Spurrier at

Q: Why do you guys play those news shows, anyway?

A: It's simple: we're a non-commercial radio station. As a result, we have a responsibility (an ugly word, to be sure) to keep the public informed on issues of the day. That's why we air news and public affairs shows during the school year.

Q: Why can't I hear WHSS?

A: There are many answers to this question. For starters, we are not allowed to increase our signal's strength. If we did, we would interfere with WDPS and WQRP, which share the 89.5 FM frequency in Dayton. In addition, there are two stations in the Cincinnati area - WMKV 89.3 FM, and WNKU 89.7 FM - which can interfere with our signal (and, unfortunately, vice versa). As a result, we can be difficult to pick up in areas close to Dayton and Cincinnati.
