About WDFH:

WDFH 90.3 FM, Westchester Public Radio broadcasts from a tower in Mount Pleasant.  We’ve actually been on-air since 1995, but with a tiny audience and weak signal. In 2009, the FCC approved a long-awaited signal expansion which permits us to broadcast in a generally northward direction from Mt. Pleasant to reach as many as 400,000 potential listeners in central and northern Westchester and eastern Rockland County. WDFH may be heard at www.wdfh.org, and on smart phones through the Public Radio Player application.

WDFH is a not-for-profit, commercial-free station staffed by volunteers who are dedicated to providing quality programming which includes a freeform mix of rock, jazz, blues, folk, and programs that showcase local musicians. We offer local news and public affairs through locally-hosted and produced programs, and carry Pacifica Network shows like Democracy Now, Free Speech Radio News and This Way Out plus shows from independent producers. There’s a reason on the very left of the radio dial!

Since WDFH is operated by volunteers, we’re truly a “community” public radio station. Our quality local programs are relevant to our listeners. Longtime station volunteers Vinny Cohan, Dave Foster and John Dyer host weekly music programs using a library of more than 100,000 recordings. You’ll rarely hear the same song repeated in a month, much less in the save day!

A list of our current locally-hosted and produced news and public affairs shows: follows. You may visit www.WDFH.org for a program schedule:

  • In Focus, an in-depth discussion of local news and public affairs, is hosted by WDFH veterans Jane Botticelli and Vinny Cohan with guest reporter Gary Cahill, editor and publisher of The Gazette, based in Croton-on-Hudson.
  • Eyes on Westchester is a conversation about current issues affecting central and northern Westchester. It is hosted by Melinda Battle, with Faith Ann Butcher, Editor-in-Chief of The Northern Westchester Examiner.
  • Recovery Talk, hosted by veteran journalist Robyn Leary, is a pioneering show dedicated to resilience in recovery. Health and medical topics, new science technologies, advances in trauma research, public policy, addiction treatment, recovery advocacy, veteran’s affairs, domestic violence resources and anti-crime initiatives are among the many subjects covered.
  • For the Greater Good spotlights the work of Westchester-area not-for profit organizations. Due to the nature of media these days, promoting their services, programs, events and needs has become more challenging than ever before. Host Di Morgan provides the time to discuss the role they play in our area and in our lives.
  • Village Green explores environmental and social issues reflecting the greening of communities in the lower Hudson valley and beyond. Hosted by Maxine Margo Rubin, it builds awareness and promotes grassroots efforts in the areas of energy use, alternative energy sources, food and local farming, water and land use, and more eco-friendly habits.
  • OutCasting made its debut in October 2011. Students from local high school Gay-Straight Alliances and similar groups plan the show, conduct interviews and assist with

editing and production. We believe this is the only program of its kind in the U.S. enabling students to actually host and produce a program exploring LGBTQ issues they face on a daily basis.

WDFH relies on donations and underwriting from individuals, businesses, corporations and foundations to survive and pay for operating expenses. Listeners are asked to make an investment in a nonprofit, commercial-free radio station that exists only for the benefit of its listeners.
