Listener Nancy wrote:

Some may say it's an overused standby, but thank you so much … for playing Carmina Burana on Wednesday! I will never grow tired of it and always turn up the volume real high listening at home or in the car. There's a past NPR story in which  Scott Simon talks about why so many artists have performed the piece. Were the words really written by monks?

Scott Cornwall recently turned to our overnight BBC coverage for some information. He wrote this on our Facebook page:

I'm not really interested in British soccer scores, and that's all the BBC is talking about. I was hoping to hear something about Mali, a music festival, or something. At any rate, odds and sods....you should have played Stockhausen all night! Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz……..

Listener Peter sent in a pledge with this note:

Being 70 years old, I don't have a lot of extra cash, but I listen almost every day at some point.

Listener Joanna Puritz wrote on Wednesday night:

What has happened to Smooth Landing?? That is about the corny music I have heard. Once in awhile but Honky Tonk for a Smooth Landing is not Smooth.

There's a new yet familiar voice with us this week, hosting All Things Considered. As listener Jeff wrote:

It's great to hear Jeremy Loeb back with us.

Jeremy is a UNCW grad, and a former intern with WHQR who later worked at WUNC in Chapel Hill and in Washington, DC. We're delighted to welcome him back to the late afternoon shift.

And we're also very grateful to our intern Asia Brown, who did a terrific job on the show for the last several months. You'll hear more of Asia elsewhere on the station. So, welcome Jeremy and thanks, Asia!

An anonymous long-time friend of the station from Lumberton sent us a generous end-of-year donation along with this note:

Everytime I listen to Diane Rehm, my enthusiasm tends to be dampened. But never mind me. With the exception of my feelings that the station leans more left than it ever has before and is not balanced in certain program choices … the music is non-political and has no ideology, and I enjoy that – so I will donate.

We thank anonymous both for the contribution and the comment.

How many times on how many days are you going to rehash the Wilmington Ten story?  Enough already.

and later added:

[I'm] a long-time listener and fan of WHQR. But while we're at it, I have another nit-picking concern. I listen almost every night to the BBC World News and cringe when I hear, for the umpteenth time, the blurb on the hour every hour … stating that WHQR is proud to carry the BBC, etc. If this is supposed to sound fresh and spontaneous, it doesn't.
