WBFH, also known as The Biff, will begin broadcasting its 41st Annual Biffstock pledge drive at 8 a.m. Wednesday, April 26, and will continue until 11 p.m. Biff radio students will be collecting money and pledges from listeners in the community to help underwrite radio station enhancement expenses.
“Biffstock is a fun event for the radio students and it gives listeners a chance to support community radio with their donations” said Biffstock 2017 Chair Dean Hysni. All 18 Biff students from Bloomfield Hills High School will be scheduled for a one-hour shift during the total of 15 hours of live programming that day. Pledge drive information can be found on the station website wbfh.fm. Listeners can also follow the station on Twitter (@TheBiff881), on Facebook (WBFH 88.1, The Biff) and on Instagram (thebiff881).
Those who donate receive donor announcements aired on the station and their names listed on the station website. Listeners who would like to be an underwriter can do so by calling (248) 341-WBFH or clicking on the Donate Now link on the station’s website.
The pledge drive will air on the same day as the 6th annual national High School Radio Day which is a nationwide celebration of high school radio stations in the United States. More information about High School Radio Day can be found at highschoolradioday.com.
The Biff can be heard at 88.1 on the FM dial, online at wbfh.fm and on the free Biff Radio app. The community radio station is supervised by the WBFH management team of General Manager Pete Bowers and Assistant Manager/Technical Director Ron Wittebols.
WBFH has been honored with both national and state recognition numerous times in its 40 years of broadcasting. The Biff has won 1st Place, Best High School Radio Station in a national competition six times and has been named the Michigan High School Radio Station of the Year by the Michigan Association of Broadcasters ten times.
