WHUR Launches New Quiet Storm Sister Station

Heritage Radio Station embarks on its Golden Anniversary  

Known as the home of the “Original Quiet Storm,” 96.3 WHUR is rolling out a new sister Radio Station with the iconic format that can now be heard morning, noon, and night.  Formally WHUR-World, 96.3HD2 is now “The Quiet Storm Station.”  

The late Melvin Lindsey

The Quiet Storm Station gives listeners the ability to hear their favorite slow jams around-the-clock seven days a week.  Programmed by WHUR Music and Assistant Program Director Traci LaTrelle, the music on The Quiet Storm Station holds true to the flavor originated on WHUR back in 1976 by the late Melvin Lindsey. 

“You will hear classic hits like ‘Old Friend’ by Phyllis Hyman to new favorites from Kem.  It’s the perfect blend of music to help you unwind or to set the right romantic mood,” said LaTrelle. Occasionally, you will even hear Lindsey’s satin voice between songs.  

“We are deeply humbled and very excited over the opportunity for Washingtonians and listeners beyond the DMV to hear the voice and music of Melvin once again.  The launch of this Radio Station ensures that Melvin’s legacy will live on,” said the Lindsey family. 

The Quiet Storm Station comes as heritage Radio Station 96.3 WHUR prepares to celebrate its 50th Anniversary December 10, 2021.   “What better way to kick-off the road to our Golden Anniversary than to have in place a new Radio Station with the Quiet Storm format that helped to put 96.3 WHUR on the map,” said WHUR General Manager Sean Plater.  

As a bonus, the Radio Station will also keep listeners informed and engaged weeknights from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. with the award-winning news/talk “Daily Drum Show,” hosted by veteran broadcaster Harold Fisher.  Often copied by urban Radio Stations around the globe, the true sound of the Quiet Storm can also still be heard at its original home 96.3 WHUR with John Monds from 7:30 p.m. to midnight.  The Quiet Storm Station is available now at 96.3HD2, The Quiet Storm Station website and on the Quiet Storm Station mobile app.
