This broadcast of WHQR's Soup To Nuts Live! features an August 28 performance by Jesse Stockton, accompanied by hand drummer Andy Lade.  On any given night, Jesse's songwriting weaves many tales, and this intriguing evening inside the MC Erny Gallery at WHQR's studios was no exception.

Friends of Public Radio, Inc., licensee of WHQR Public Radio, has completed the purchase of the station's office and broadcast facilities at 254 North Front Street from Hexagon Holdings, Inc.

Hexagon has owned the third floor property in the Warwick Building for several years, with WHQR as its sole tenant. The agreement was signed by David Zumbro, Chair of the non-profit Friends of Public Radio, and representatives from Hexagon Holdings. The agreement followed a vote by the station's Board of Directors to purchase its own radio facility.

Beginning as an acoustic duo over a decade ago, Mac & Juice now travel the countryside as a quartet (acoustic and electric), playing original music described as “a broad-spectrum, rock & roll mosaic” with a vast stylistic range. Their latest release, Step Into The Light, is a mélange of genres that runs the gamut – from Stevie Wonder to Merle Haggard, with hook-laden songwriting and elements of bluegrass, jazz and Americana throughout.  Every show is a surprise, and this episode of Soup To Nuts Live! will be no different.

New Hanover County is seeking public feedback on new strategies that will affect recycling operations, landfill space and other aspects of countywide waste management. At an open meeting Tuesday night, half a dozen locals expressed mounting concern over the lifespan of the county landfill.

He's cool, calm, and collected, a hardcore Bluesman, and a prolific performer who believes in his art. Lightnin' James brings his own music (and a couple of notable Blues standards) to life during WHQR's Soup To Nuts Live! in the MC Erny Gallery. James has performed throughout the Carolinas and competed at the 2012 Cape Fear Blues Challenge.

Check out this clip of James performing Divin' Duck Blues by Sleepy John Estes.  (Video: Lan Nichols)

Two different artists, two different cultures, two different styles - a perfect contrast!  This much-anticipated exhibit features E. Francisca Dekker and Benjamin Billingsley.  Stop by 254 N. Front Street (3rd floor) and see what's hanging in the MC Erny gallery at WHQR.

There's no mistaking the voice. Or the songwriting. Once again, Jeanne Jolly brought the whole package to WHQR's Soup To Nuts Live! in Wilmington NC on Thursday, April 18, 2013. 8-string guitarist (and Jeanne's producer) Chris Boerner and drummer Nick Baglio painted a wonderfully melodic backdrop for Jeanne's performance.
