Genuine Mr. Carter

by | Mar 11, 2006

I’m listening to Ike Carter’s “Nothin’ but the Blues” on Savannah State University Radio, WHCJ 90.3 FM. It airs every Sat. morning from 8:00 to 12:00.

At the moment, Mr. Carter is kicking a lot of Muddy Waters from the 40s and 50s. You can’t ask for more than that from a DJ.


According to Wikipedia, The station just recently started broadcasting 24 hours a day. The station’s signal covers all of Chatham County, and can also be heard in Effingham, Bryan, Beaufort, and Liberty counties.

WHCJ plays jazz, reggae, gospel, blues, and salsa music in addition to featuring a lineup of talk shows, commentary, and cultural enrichment programs that provide a major source of programming for the African-American community.

Given that music is the universal language, I’d say the larger community is also well served by SSU’s radio station. Lovers of the blues, gospel and jazz would do well to make sure this station is properly funded.
