A recent New York Times Magazine section featured the latest in Candy-colored sunglassess including neon green sunshades by Marc Jacobs for only 350 dollars, says commentator Nan Graham. Who knew her husband was avant guard in eyewear?
Nan Graham's WHQR commentaries can be found in her books, Turn South at the Next Magnolia and In a Magnolia Minute.
WHQR Commentaries don't necessarily reflect the views of WHQR Radio, its editorial staff, or its members.

[I] Love your programming and appreciate all you add to the Wilmington community. [I] am wondering about the schedule for This American Life, normally heard noon on Saturdays with a rebroadcast the following Friday at 7:00 PM. However, several times in the last few months, there has been a new broadcast on Friday nights, which was repeated the following day at noon.
I love, love, love everything about your programming! Home, car, wherever, WHQR is the station we tune our radio to. Sure there are some programs we don't care for but we have the option to change the channel because we know there are other WHQR listeners who might enjoy what we don't and we wouldn't think of asking you to change just for us. Keep up the great work!
I fail to understand why scarce resources are expended on a call-in show that is delayed broadcast and whose topicality is stale by the time it is aired. [Tuesday’s Diane Rehm] broadcast was about Iraq and the Maliki crisis, some of which had become out dated by 3 PM.
Mr. Cohen has identified a problem that does concern us. In the next few weeks you’ll be hearing more about our response to this concern. Stay tuned.
In this week's big news, listeners all over the region were anxiously tuned in to WHQR on Sunday night to see if we'd do it yet one more time. Frequent correspondent Nancy Geimer wrote to us on Monday:
Yay!! RadioLab this week was a program we've never heard before, and we enjoyed it. We look forward to hearing another program that we've never heard before, next week! Thanks for all you do.
I wrote back to Nancy and asked if could use her name. Her reply?
Why not? I'm starting to feel like a minor celebrity!
While I appreciate the thought behind your … community commentaries, as a woman, I am appalled at the many sexist and simplistic commentaries from local women on your station. Most support stereotypes about gender and/or Southern women, and invariably deal with superficial and demeaning subject matter …. I understand the desire for the station to air local voices, but surely [WHQR] could air instead commentaries … that do not contribute to the sexism and stereotyping so prevalent in this society.
