Kimberly wrote last week:

I listen to WHQR at work, and usually I listen off the NPR website because it streams (as opposed to downloading the mp3 file). Within the last month, the WHQR stream from the NPR website is the WHQR classical station. In case this is a mistake, just wanted to let you guys know - otherwise, often, the mp3 file won't play consistently from the local website.

Alexa Doran, poet and WHQR/UNCW Graduate Fellow

In reference to last week’s CoastLine show on offshore drilling, Alina asked:

Where can we listen to the archived version of this if we missed it live?

For Alina and other: all of our CoastLine shows are archived, usually later on Wednesday afternoons. Each show is in three parts.

Flutist Suzanne Bona, host of Sunday Baroque; pianist Barbara McKenzie; guitarist Richard Goering, last February during Suzanne's visit to Wilmington

An anonymous listener wrote:

Your stations do such a good job. Recently on Sunday Baroque, you had a Galliard on with bongos, tambourine and acoustic guitar. Why not throw in a Hammond H3 and a Fender Stratocaster and a set of back up girls?....  I had to cut the radio off. Sorry.

Also last week, listener J. Tennille wrote on our website:

We’ve had plenty of good comments on Friday Feedback recently. Better fasten your seat belts for today’s installment.

Last August we conducted a survey of classical music listeners as we prepared to launch Classical HQR on 96.7. Now that it’s been on the, we’ve re-contacted with those who filled out the earlier survey and who gave us their mailing addresses. A few responses have come in, too few so far to draw any general conclusions, but some of the comments are … interesting.

We haven’t had any inquiries about this, but I want to give a brief update on some weather-related and other issues we’ve had recently, mostly affecting Classical HQR.

It’s been pretty quiet in this first week since the holidays. I assume most people are catching up on backlogs. A number of people mailed, phoned or webbed in with 2014 year-end gifts, some with comments. We’re grateful to all of you.

Listener Robert made a contribution and wrote:

I listen less and less to WHQR, particularly since the transition to the new format. What little listening is to the news station. Pity.

This listener heard a bilingual Christmas music program on Classical HQR last Friday.
