Please move the Diane Rehm show off of WHQR or to a late night time slot. My afternoon commute is ruined now that I have to choose between right-wing propaganda and the left-wing Rehm.

[A section of this post and corresponding audio has been deleted that incorrectly identified a contest winner's prize].

Last week I read a number of comments from listeners who had bones to pick with us. This week, we’ve had many fewer comments, and I used the opportunity to go back and see what people wrote to us who contacted us by web pledges during our one-day drive in December. And that reminds me to address an issue I have heard a number of people ask about, and that’s the selection of comments to read.

Thank you to the members of the Thursday Morning Music Club. They invited me to speak to them yesterday. They had some very nice comments about the station and some very interesting questions.

Note: We received so much Feedback this week that we couldn't get it all on the air. The text below, and the audio, include segments edited out of the on-air version.

We introduced a few program changes to our weekend lineup last week. A listener who wishes to remain anonymous wrote:

Last Saturday at seven minutes after 10 am we received this email from listener Harry:

WHERE IS CAR TALK?! And WHAT is this TOTAL religious CRAP you are foisting upon us!

The Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols is a live broadcast from King's College in Cambridge, England. It has been broadcast at 10 am on Christmas Eve ever since WHQR signed on in 1984. We have included this as one of several holiday-related specials scheduled at this time of the year, which have been publicized on the air and on our website for several days.

The week after a fund drive is a very good one for getting lots of feedback. Listeners who called or wrote in to our one-day drive on December 8th had some interesting comments for us and for our partners, Cape Fear Habitat for Humanity. For every pledge, Build Pro donated a standard 2x4 to be used to construct a Habitat house next spring.

Robert Sherman and Lucy Sherman of Hampstead said:

Leave the BBC alone.

Deborah Ullmer of Wilmington said:

I listen to it every am and my husband and I don’t know what we would do without it.
