I’m just 'shootin' you guys [some money] because I'm loving the night time music schedule. The Jazz has kept me from too much tv watching during the week, and Soup to Nuts, Smooth Landings etc have been so awesome lately too. Thanks for your sliver of sanity on a cluttered radio dial!!

I found that by tuning my car radio to your music station while I was in Wilmington, I can still get it in/around Southport (smiley face).  I had been unable to tune into it from Southport.

Seven shark attacks in a month off the North Carolina coast – most of them causing serious injury – is record-breaking.  On the next CoastLine, we’ll talk with a researcher about shark habits, safety protocols, and whether you have anything to worry about the next time you head to the beach. 

Listen for CoastLine Wednesday at 12:06 on HQR News 91 3 FM.

Please Touch the Art: Mail Art @ ACME

Jul 2, 2015
ACME Studios

Local artist Fritzi Huber curated a show called "If It Fits, Mail It" at ACME Studios downtown.  The show has one simple stipulation:  if the postal service would deliver the piece, it would be hung in the show.  Two-hundred pieces of art were mailed to ACME from 10 countries. 

The opening reception for this exhibit was at the end of June, but the exhibit is open until the third week in July.  The closing reception will be on Friday, July 17th. 

Sure, playing in the women's World Cup burns a lot more energy than watching the women's World Cup. But the number of calories expended in sports and daily activities isn't always so obvious.

To figure it out, we dove into this database compiled by Arizona State University. It charts the energy expenditure for hundreds of activities, from mainstream ("bicycling, leisure, 5.5 mph") to obscure ("caulking, chinking log cabin").

I've had this phrase running through my head since we started updating our Commencement Speeches database a few weeks ago: "If you're too big for a small job, you're too small for a big job."

Who said that? It was Katie Couric at American University last year.

Who knew that a commencement address could get stuck in your head? Well, the best of these speeches have a lot in common with a great pop song. They are simple, emotional, and pack a universal message into just a few words.

Fundraising is often used as a proxy for the strength of a campaign, and Hillary Clinton's team wants everyone to know she's $45 million strong. Clinton is the first major candidate to announce their fundraising haul this cycle ahead of a midmonth reporting deadline.
