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.

Jemila Ericson at a Homes of Hope orphanage in India

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.

Serious question. Do jazz 'musicians' have scripted music or do they just randomly play that disconnected rubbish? If pictures are a series of lines that please the eye and music is a series of sounds that please the ear, what is jazz?

This week marked the 37th anniversary of the murder of John Lennon on the streets of New York. George Scheibner played a tribute on Smooth Landing.

A couple of weeks ago, I read a message from listener Bo, who said he would listen but not longer contribute because he felt that WHQR and NPR are consistently liberal. By the way, in response to inquiries, this Bo is not our old pal Bo Biggs from Lumberton, who is a conservative and a valued supporter of WHQR. At any rate, here’s what Delthea Simmons wrote:

This edition of Friday Feedback is a little different. I’m actually away at a professional conference this week, so this was recorded early in the week, before many comments typically come in. Still, we’ve had some interesting messages with web pledges recently.

Clear, interesting, and local-I love our NPR station!

In memory of Tom Magliozzi.

Last week we aired a clip from a caller to CoastLine who complimented us on having a conservative on the show, and went on to say that he generally thought we were “90 percent liberal.” Listener Bo wrote:

The elections and the electioneering are over; the TV ads are gone, and with a little luck those pesky highway signs will soon be gone. WHQR’s news team spent hour after hour on special programming for our CoastLine talk show, including candidate forums for many events. Before we bid farewell and/or good riddance to all that, here’s a comment from listener LeeAnn:

I’m diving back into some messages that came in during our recent fund drive, and some follow-ups. Remember that for listeners who would like to hear Classical HQR on 96.7 but are having difficulty, there is a solution for you – an HD Radio which will pick up the HD2 signal of 91.3. This works very well and you can find out about our Pay It Forward plan at whqr.org.
