I love this story! We recently moved and the previous owners had mole poison in the garage. I threw it out immediately- poor guys [smiley face].

Did someone from your station call me and ask right out blank for a … donation at approximately 9 pm on a weeknight? 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.

It is very easy to see that WHQR has a vendetta against Thom Goolsby - what is the beef??

We have really enjoyed the new morning announcer… Lovely voice. Smooth delivery. Congratulations!

We're also glad to have Ken Campbell on board as our new Morning Edition anchor. Ken will be working on that show and on CoastLine, our new local talk show which will debut on June 24th. You can find out more at whqr.org; look for People under the About tab.

You have a wonderful staff of announcers. 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.

Listener Dan let us know Wednesday at 4:38:

Your internet feed is down.

As it happened we have been working on moving these feeds to a new, more stable server. The heavy rains and power outages Wednesday afternoon have taken their toll on our HD2 all-classical stream. We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience while we work on the problems.

Today is the day, boys and girls, when we deal with some technical issues. We are after all in the business of working with audio and computer technology all day long. Not all of these will affect every listener, but I hope they’re of interest.

Forgive us, but we’re still basking in the glow of the Spring member drive which ended last week. Here are some more listener comments that came in during the drive:

Late in the drive Paul and Rebecca Reinmann wrote:

[We] have suggested following the Car Talk Guys approach - send in your pledges on a $5,000 and $10,000 bill, and we're there! Voila! We'd need only two more pledges at this rate.

Well, there ya go.

As usual, our Spring pledge drive brought a lot of comments from people pledging. And also as usual, here’s a sample.

Your station is a shining beacon in a 'radio sea' of blandness.

I wish you had a show giving more analysis of North Carolina concerns like the voting rights changes, seismic testing, local education, etc.
