Hunter at Sunrise: Our Music is a Voyage

spray top open blue speed 1253 763Hunter At Sunrise can be heard every Sunday morning from 7-11am eastern on this site. We broadcast from the studios of  89.5 WHRV FM in Norfolk, Va. Just click the player to listen. We here at Hunter At Sunrise believe that there is still great new music out there...that the spirit of discovery still exists especially on Sunday mornings. We believe that the majority of music these days is mired in the sounds of the past or caught in the repetition of new pop music that is performer and personality driven. Hunter At Sunrise is about the flow of morning music and not the angst of every day current events. It is a haven from the humdrum of the work-a-day week, a soundtrack for relaxing on a Sunday morning.  We draw our playlist from the obscure past and the futuristic artists trying to stretch the boundaries of modern songwriting.  We believe in Hampton Roads and the local music scene.  We want to present live fresh music and have it last. Thanks so much for listening.
