WHPK is a non-profit community radio station of the University of Chicago, broadcasting to Hyde Park and the South Side of Chicago for over 60 years. WHPK is dedicated to playing music not commonly heard on mainstream radio. Our programming consists of a wide variety of music for equally diverse listening audience. Such broad appeal is evident from the many formats we offer. These include: Rock, Jazz, Classical, International, Hip-Hop, and Folk, as well as specialty shows shows featuring avant-garde, Blues, dance music, and live in-studio performances. WHPK is not only dedicated to music. It has an equally renowned Public Affairs Format where community concerns are voiced and where interviews with local politicians and other public figures can be heard.
