Satisfy That Blues Craving With A Midnight Snack at WHQR...
  Public radio's late-night foray into the blues couldn't happen at a better time.  WHQR 91.3fm brings you Front Street Blues, produced and hosted by Lan Nichols, every Friday & Saturday at midnight, in the heart of the Port City.
  The program presents an eclectic variety of music from within the blues genre, including traditional, contemporary, and classic blues peppered with the stylistic flavorings of Chicago, Piedmont, Memphis, West Coast, Delta, Gospel, Texas, Swamp, Pre-War, Urban, R&B, Soul, and British Blues. 
  FSB is also proud to feature local blues musicians and listeners spinning their favorite blues tracks and sharing their unique blues experiences with our audience.  Front Street Blues also supports live blues performances and jam sessions staged throughout the city, year round.  As well, artists, labels, and publicists are encouraged to submit blues music to FSB for airplay.

  Front Street Blues broadcasts from the studios of WHQR 91.3fm located high atop the Warwick Building in historic downtown Wilmington.
