New Jersey native (now Michigan resident) Daddy G hosts this new show on WHFR, where you will be whisked off to the Malt Shop where the jukebox plays music from the 50’s and 60s. His lighthearted approach will make you laugh and the music will make you dance. For some, it will evoke memories of their youth. That’s "The Malt Shop" with Daddy G every Thursday from 2-4 PM. Locally-produced alternative programming, only on WHFR.FM.
It's a real about face this Thursday as we engage two of the most enterprising turntablist-come-electro-musicians North of the 9 o'clock hour.

Tune in at 5p.m. Thursday, the 19th, to Motor Live Drive @ 5. Music and interviews for your ride home that keep it moving! On the station Makin' Waves.
