Great American Songbook Memorial Day Special

Update 5/22: So far, other stations that we know of who will be carrying this show are KHNS in Alaska, (Haines, Skagway and Klukwan), Spokane Public Radio, and KTXK in Texarkana, Texas.

WHQR presents a special program for this year's Memorial Day commemoration. Since 2010 WHQR has presented daily segments of the Great American Songbook, produced by George Scheibner with Dr. Philip Furia. Collectively the episodes present an enduring body of classic American song, performed generation after generation by musicians and singers.

91.3 back to normal; HD upgrade not yet complete

Engineer Jobie Sprinkle and Operations Manager George Scheibner worked over the weekend on installing new HD circuitry in our main 91.3 transmitter. Once this is done, listeners who have had difficulty receiving Classical HQR on 96.7 will be able to hear 24-hour classical music on an HD radio tuned to 91.3's HD2 signal.

Unfortunately, the HD upgrade could not be completed due to a missing part in the inventory supplied by the manufacturer. We will be ordering it and get Jobie back in action as soon as possible. 91.3, HD1 and HD2, and 96.7 are all operational as before.

91.3 at reduced power today for HD upgrade

A long-awaited power boost to our HD signal is scheduled to be implemented today (Saturday May 16). HQR News at 91.3 will be at reduced power beginning around noon while engineer Jobie Sprinkle and Operations Manager George Scheibner work on installing new HD circuitry in our main 91.3 transmitter. Once this is done, listeners who have had difficulty receiving Classical HQR on 96.7 should be able to hear 24-hour classical music on an HD radio tuned to 91.3's HD2 signal. Thank you for your patience.
