History[edit]

The radio station originated in 1982 as WDFH, a community radio station that broadcast a freeform format of progressive and alternative rock, jazz, blues, and folk. WDFH had a several-decades long history, starting out as a cable-based station in the 1980s and finally moving to the FM band in 1992.

One of WDFH's notable programs in its final years was OutCasting, a program for LGBTQ youth.

On July 29, 2013, WDFH ceased broadcasting, and the broadcast license was subsequently purchased by New York Public Radio, changing call letters to WQXW and becoming a rebroadcaster of WQXR.
