First broadcast in 1973, KHDX 93.1 FM is Hendrix College’s student-run radio station. We are entirely supported through student activity fees allocated by the Hendrix College Student Senate. Our mission is to provide eclectic programming to campus, the city of Conway, and the globe through the FM airwaves, digital streaming, and our website. We accomplish this goal by allowing students to create and broadcast content with which they are deeply connected. Our passions manifest in the form of recorded and live music, spoken word, news, sports, and educational programming. The result is a station that represents the dynamic diversity of our student body. KHDX is also a tool for learning the ropes of radio broadcasting and event production. In DJ and executive staff positions, students get a chance to engage in developing content, organizing events, and managing/participating in a volunteer-based organization that impacts the student experience on Hendrix campus.
You may have noticed me at KHDX events or in the booth before — I’ve been a part of the KHDX staff for 3 years now. In the footsteps of my idols Katie Casper, Anna McCorquodale, and Hope Montgomery, I am honored to continue the KHDX matriarchy as the 2016-2017 station manager! I am a firm believer that KHDX is the best dang organization on campus because MUSIC and I can’t wait to meet all you DJs and music lovers. I am a senior French and Creative Writing double major from Atlanta, GA and love to talk all things food and Animal Collective. I write exclusively with blue Pilot G2 0.07 pens and extra sharp pencils.
Class: Senior (class of 2017)

Hi! My name is Hannah Blevins and I am the programming director for KHDX. I am a lover of oldies music and nearly all things nerdy (from Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings and everything in between). My show is Throwback Thursday, where I play hits from the 1920’s up to the 1990’s. I also have a habit of sharing geeky music facts during song breaks. I hope you can tune in!
Double Major in English & Philosophy
Hey guys! My name is Gabrielle Fulton and I’m the Music Director for KHDX! I’m a fan of all types of music from punk to hip-hop and some of my favorite musicians that I’ve been listening to recently are Wilco, Run the Jewels, Kendrick Lamar, Neutral Milk Hotel, and G.L.O.S.S. I also have a show on KHDX called “Shut the Folk Up!” in which I showcase DIY folk punk and independent grunge. Feel free to contact me with any music requests, I look forward to hearing from you!
Sophomore, Class of ‘19
I’m Everett Roddy, the Promotions Director for KHDX and a new addition to the station’s staff for the 2016 – 2017 school year. It’s my job to make posters for the awesome KHDX sponsored events that we have here on campus, as well as to reach out to local music venues and festivals. I’m an avid music listener and amateur musician myself, and my musical taste spans pretty much every genre you could imagine. From Thelonious Monk, to Enrico Caruso, to The Walkmen, to Jacques Brel—I can dig it all.
Jacob is the Technical Director for KHDX. He is in charge of all things related to the website, the equipment in the DJ booth, and all of the podcasting operations. He is a sophomore at Hendrix (class of 2019), majoring in Computer Science and minoring in Film Studies. You can often find him tinkering with the equipment in the DJ booth, running around campus trying to make it to his classes on time, or possibly cosplaying as the 11th Doctor if it’s Halloween. He’s very much into alternative rock and 70s/80s classic rock, so you can find him listening to everything from Knox Hamilton, Saint Motel, Vampire Weekend and Grouplove; to Supertramp, The Beatles, A Flock of Seagulls and Queen; and a lot of what’s in between.
