Now a decade later the Down Rite Daddies have changed and aged to perfection as one of America's hardest working road bands, sharing the stage with the likes of Jerry Lee Lewis, Wanda Jackson, The Reverend Horton Heat, Big Sandy and His Flyrite Boys, Gene Summers, Glen Glenn, Chuck Berry and many more.
This week marks our 200th "Motor Live Drive @ 5" with Carnival Girl featuring veteran rockers Serana Verlin and Gary Adams. WHFR started the "Motor Live Drive @ 5" in January 2007 and have had a live band in the studio almost every week since. Currently, hosted by Mr. White, Margaret, and sound engineer Alan Contino it's been a welcomed challenge to bring in the best music in town and have it ready for broadcast at 5 pm every Thursday. With all the great Motor City musicians it has been gratifying to give them a live opportunity to showcase their talent over the air!
