WHPK 88.5 fm Chicago

WHPK a non-profit community radio station of the University of Chicago, broadcasting to Hyde Park and the South Side of Chicago for over 50 years

WHPK was the first to bring hip-hop to the South Side’s airwaves nearly two decades ago, when other radio stations were still playing Huey Lewis and the News. Quite a few have caught on by now, but our Rap shows continue to be the best out there. DJs JP Chill, Extreme, V Funk, Kev Duce, Thaione, Pugslee Atomz and Kevin Maxey play the cutting edge of the hip-hop underground while keeping a firm grip on the old-school—all unedited and uncensored. And on Friday nights you’ll get to hear live mixes by legendary DJs from around Chicago.

Thanks to AB at Fake Shore Drive for telling me about streaming this station online. I tuned in for Pugslee Atomz show last night (Wed), which was chock full of Cool Kids, Dilla, Mikkey Halstead, FSD shoutouts, **Update** Mick Luter, and a bunch of stuff I’ve never heard before… You won’t be disappointed.
