Carl Wiser is a former DJ from Hartford’s WHCN.
He is the creator of Songfacts.com, a database of 16,000 songs and popular resource for radio shows nationwide that was written up in The Chicago Tribune, USA Weekend and Men’s Journal.
Songfacts is a website devoted to song information, including the history and meanings of the songs. The site is organized into a database with each song getting it’s own entry. Originally used as a resource for DJs, the site gained widespread recognition when Yahoo chose it as a pick in 2002. Songfacts also conducts interviews with songwriters and musicians, which are available in their entirety and used as content for the database.
