WHWS broadcasts a diverse program schedule, as befitting a college radio station.   Mornings we broadcast Spanish-language Radio Bilingue, Take a break with the Mid-Morning Reprieve and then it’s off to the races with a rock/alternative format mixed in with our students’ eclectic tastes!

Along the way we have added some special noontime programs!

Radio Bilingue : Weekdays – 2am to 10am

A Spanish/English language service from KSJV in Fresno, California, Radio Bilingue is heard across the United States via satellite and affiliate stations like WHWS.  We are the sole radio affiliate in New York state, and the only station in the Geneva area that airs Spanish-language programming!

RB broadcasts a mix of music, news and information shows.  Their full schedule is here (remember that the times listed are Pacific Time, which is 3 hours behind Eastern Time).  The schedule of RB shows WHWS broadcasts is shown in green below.  Tune in at 5-6am ET for Linea Abierta, their daily call-in talk/public affairs show!

Mid-Morning Reprieve : Weekdays 10am – 11am
Every weekday morning, Jake Longwell takes you on a tour of unusual and eclectic music designed to be perfect for at-work listening.   From jazz to classical to new age to new wave, it’s the Mid-Morning Reprieve on WHWS!

  • Monday: The Jazz Scene  The best in traditional and contemporary jazz music from the 1920s through the present.  This program is ideal for both longtime jazz fans, and anyone who is just getting into the genre.
  • Tuesday: Classics and Beyond  A fresh new approach to classical music programming on radio. The show features the entire spectrum of “classical music” from early music straight through to the latest classical compositions. From orchestral works to experiments in electronic music, if it’s classical, you’ll hear it on The Classics and Beyond.
  • Wednesday: Sounds from the Global Village  Featuring traditional, folkloric, and contemporary music from around the world. You will hear everything from scratchy field recordings made during the early 20th century to the latest fusions of music and culture from around the world.
  • Thursday: Jazz Progressions  Designed for the more adventurous jazz fan. Every week, we feature some of the best in jazz/rock fusion, avant-gard, free jazz, acid jazz, and jazz-influenced electronica.
  • Friday: Lake Air  From the picturesque Finger Lakes region of New York state comes Lake Air. Every week, Lake Air presents an hour of “unique contemporary music”. A music mix that is just right for relaxing, or as background music for any occasion. The best in contemporary jazz, new age, and acoustic music are blended to create a sound you’re unlikely to hear anywhere else. So, sit back, relax, and enjoy the refreshing sound of Lake Air.
