Rachael Lewis Hilburn’s voice was easily recognized and I thought it was a local broadcast, and then was surprised to hear this was a voice on a national presentation. Good job! And then, it is always, great to hear George Scheibner’s music following. Paco Strickland will always be recognized as a great local performer.</p></blockquote><p>Anonymous wrote on our recent survey:</p> Fri, 11 Jul 2014 12:52:14 +0000 Cleve Callison 57907 at http://whqr.org Friday Feedback for July 11, 2014 WHQR Annual Meeting http://whqr.org/post/whqr-annual-meeting <p><strong>WHQR's Annual Meeting</strong> will take place on Thursday, July 17th, 2014, at 6:00 pm in the MC Erny Gallery at WHQR, 254 North Front Street Suite 300, Wilmington.

Since the second WHQR station is HD (and not available to all), it makes sense to mix news and music programming on the flagship station. However, I'd love it if the music was more diverse--indie music, singer-songwriters, Alt-Latino, "college music." As it stands, the music programming seems almost entirely focused on older demographics.</p></blockquote><p>Anonymous wrote:</p> Fri, 04 Jul 2014 10:00:00 +0000 Cleve Callison 57526 at http://whqr.org Friday Feedback for July 4, 2014 Region Weathers Hurricane Arthur http://whqr.org/post/region-weathers-hurricane-arthur <p> <em><strong>Update 10:00 am</strong></em>: Hurricane Arthur has passed through our area without significant damage, though residents to our north are not so lucky.
