The Decemberists Drop New Single, Coming to the Smith Opera House!

If you listen to WHWS, you have heard The Decemberists. Now your chance it see them live is coming later this Spring.    The Decemberists new single “Severed” was released today and can be heard at the top of most hours on WHWS 105.7 FM this evening (1/17) and tomorrow afternoon and evening (1/18).

The other news dropped today is The Decemberists will for the first time ever play The Smith Opera House in Geneva on Monday, April 23, 2018.   Tickets for the show go on sale at The Smith Friday (1/19) at 10am.  The show is expected to sell out, as it is one of the smallest venues the band is playing on their upcoming tour.

The Decemberists explore a new sound with a new producer on their inspired eighth studio album, “I’ll Be Your Girl,” which will be released March 16 on Capitol Records. The acclaimed Portland, Oregon-based band worked with producer John Congleton (St. Vincent, Lana del Rey) and embraced influences such as Roxy Music and New Order to spark a new creative path, as can be heard on the synth-driven lead single “Severed.”

YOU! (yes you) Can Be Featured In Our Weekly Video Series!

Looking for a reason to join the WHWS Radio squad? Well look no further! Not only are we a team of sweet radio peeps who love music (and the sound of our own voices ) but we also love videos! They say video killed the radio star- but in this case, video just made the radio star cooler and much groovier. Each week, we put out a new video as a part of a weekly series called “WHWS Listens!” to showcase new music that has come out that week or that we’ve been listening to in the station.

But here’s the best part: with each video we bother some radio staff member or DJ to awkwardly (or not awkwardly, totally up to you) do an intro for us! These videos surface on Facebook, and tend to get around ten to one million views each week. So remember, if you are passionate about music, secretly wish you were DJing every frat party, or want to make your debut in our video series: now is the time! Check out some of our past intros thanks to our lovely DJs and staff.
