Martyn Hawkins wrote to us via Facebook:</p><blockquote><p>You have been playing the most magnificent music [Wednesday] evening at [10]:10, [11]:25, and [11]:44. I have tried to find out what it was so I could buy copies of it. In your typical moronic "Radio With Vision" there was no way to find out. Even Mayberry RFD would have a more sensibly arranged station.</p> Fri, 25 Jul 2014 09:00:00 +0000 Cleve Callison 58614 at http://whqr.org Friday Feedback for July 18, 2014 http://whqr.org/post/friday-feedback-july-18-2014 <p></p><p>There’s not too much Feedback for our little clambake this week.

Rachael Lewis Hilburn’s voice was easily recognized and I thought it was a local broadcast, and then was surprised to hear this was a voice on a national presentation. Good job! And then, it is always, great to hear George Scheibner’s music following. Paco Strickland will always be recognized as a great local performer.</p></blockquote><p>Anonymous wrote on our recent survey:</p> Fri, 11 Jul 2014 12:52:14 +0000 Cleve Callison 57907 at http://whqr.org Friday Feedback for July 11, 2014 Friday Feedback for July 4, 2014 http://whqr.org/post/friday-feedback-july-4-2014 <p></p><p>Listener Dory wrote:</p><blockquote><p>I prefer public radio formats in which there are two stations--one news/talk programming and one music programming. Since the second WHQR station is HD (and not available to all), it makes sense to mix news and music programming on the flagship station. However, I'd love it if the music was more diverse--indie music, singer-songwriters, Alt-Latino, "college music." As it stands, the music programming seems almost entirely focused on older demographics.</p></blockquote><p>Anonymous wrote:</p> Fri, 04 Jul 2014 10:00:00 +0000 Cleve Callison 57526 at http://whqr.org Friday Feedback for July 4, 2014 Friday Feedback for June 20, 2014 http://whqr.org/post/friday-feedback-june-20-2014 <p></p><p></p> Fri, 20 Jun 2014 09:00:00 +0000 Cleve Callison 56807 at http://whqr.org Friday Feedback for June 20, 2014 Friday Feedback for June 13, 2014 http://whqr.org/post/friday-feedback-june-13-2014 <p></p><p></p><p></p><p>Grace Evanko Sullivan wrote on the website for <a href="http://whqr.org/post/moles" target="_blank"><strong>Andy Wood's Tuesday commentary on moles</strong></a>:</p><blockquote><p>I love this story!

What is this about? I have in the past contributed your station during your pledge drives. Why are you calling me directly for a specific amount? Is this a scam? If not, and it was from your front desk, I am highly insulted.</p> Fri, 06 Jun 2014 09:00:00 +0000 Cleve Callison 56055 at http://whqr.org Friday Feedback for June 6, 2014 Friday Feedback for May 30, 2014 http://whqr.org/post/friday-feedback-may-30-2014 <p>Listener Carla wrote:</p><blockquote><p>It is very easy to see that WHQR has a vendetta against Thom Goolsby - what is the beef??</p> Fri, 30 May 2014 09:10:00 +0000 Cleve Callison 55713 at http://whqr.org Friday Feedback for May 30, 2014 Friday Feedback for May 23, 2014 http://whqr.org/post/friday-feedback-may-23-2014 <p></p><p>Listener Jeannie wrote:</p><blockquote><p>We have really enjoyed the new morning announcer… Lovely voice.

Jemila, George, Bob and Pat, Rachel to name but a few all have pleasing radio voices that invite you into their world and make you feel a part of the programming. It's lively, tasteful, colorful, funny, upbeat and always makes for a bright spot in any day when you listen to them. I especially like to hear Barbara Bush beat the bushes for cash during the fund drives. Her bombastic and motherly southern drawl always drives me to action and gets into my pocket.</p></blockquote><p>A different Anonymous wrote:</p> Fri, 16 May 2014 09:00:00 +0000 Cleve Callison 54950 at http://whqr.org Friday Feedback for May 16, 2014
