When we don’t have a live DJ hosting a show, you hear our eclectic, hand-curated proprietary database of music we call WHUPtunes, thousands of songs that we cull from the vast storehouse of music from across the US and around the world (and stashed in the mythical WHUP vault) that helps create our unique sound. For the past year we have been revamping and upgrading the delivery system, doubling the size of the collection and making scheduling changes that will make the WHUPtunes listening experience a constant joyride through unexpected musical realms. Though we don’t have a firm release date yet, we are now in the testing stages of the project and hope to have it online by the end of the year.
In keeping with our commitment to local and regional music, we plan to include two WHUPtunes hours devoted exclusively to recordings by North Carolina artists. We will also be spinning a broader array of international music from all corners of the globe that you’ll only hear on WHUP! Stay tuned for more details as we near the go-live date.
