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.

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.</p> Fri, 06 Jun 2014 09:00:00 +0000 Cleve Callison 56055 at http://whqr.org Friday Feedback for June 6, 2014 Friday Feedback for May 30, 2014 http://whqr.org/post/friday-feedback-may-30-2014 <p>Listener Carla wrote:</p><blockquote><p>It is very easy to see that WHQR has a vendetta against Thom Goolsby - what is the beef??</p> Fri, 30 May 2014 09:10:00 +0000 Cleve Callison 55713 at http://whqr.org Friday Feedback for May 30, 2014 Spring 2014 Survey Results http://whqr.org/post/spring-2014-survey-results <p><strong>WHQR's Spring 2014 Survey </strong>is now complete.
