WAJH-FM (Jazz Hall Radio) is a non-commercial jazz and easy listening radio station, operated by the Alabama Jazz Hall of Fame and broadcasting in Birmingham at FM 91.1. Andy Parrish is general manager.

The station, originally called WVSU-FM, began as a student-run outlet for Samford University's program in journalism and mass communication. The station first went on the air on December 1, 1978, broadcasting from a 400-watt transmitter atop a 72-foot tower on the campus of Vestavia Hills Baptist Church on Shades Mountain.

In 2007 WVSU became the flagship for the 7-station "Samford University Sports Radio Network," broadcasting Samford Bulldogs football, basketball and baseball games.

In February 2018 the Alabama Jazz Hall of Fame took over operations of the radio station under a program servicing agreement with Samford. Ownership of the station as transferred, for $50,000, on May 1 of that year.
