Radio stations around the Washington region are playing Whitney Houston songs as fans mourn Whitney’s death. Many have been stunned at the news of her death.

“It’s so raw,” said Ric Chill, a DJ at Magic 102.3 FM.
 
He said listeners have been calling in with stories on how Houston’s music touched their lives.
 
“And emotionally, you’re trying to figure out exactly what happened. How this happened because she was only 48-years-old. You know. She’s so young. She had so much more to give. It’s a real tragedy,” said Chill.
 
Some of the callers cried on the air as they shared their stories. One woman said Houston’s music helped her get through a tough time in her life when her husband passed away.
