While I am no big fan of the radio, it's kind of sad that D.C.'s WHFS switched over to salsa music today at noon. I listened to it a little (very little) over the past few years, and I can say this: it wasn't total shit. And that's a compliment in today's radio terms. Sometimes they played actual songs, by bands that didn't have a PR machine behind them, or bands you couldn't hear on every other channel. Granted, it wasn't a savior of music, but they had a pretty respected history. And they did put on the HFStival, and if you're a Jawbox fan and own My Scrapbook of Fatal Accidents, you've heard their short set from that show. So anyway, WHFS is muerto, and salsa music lives.
