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.</p></blockquote><p>We thank anonymous both for the contribution and the comment.</p><p>Listener Izzi wrote:</p> Fri, 04 Jan 2013 10:00:00 +0000 Cleve Callison 29607 at http://whqr.org Friday Feedback for January 4, 2013 Friday Feedback for December 21, 2012 http://whqr.org/post/friday-feedback-december-21-2012 <p></p><p></p><p>Donna and Greg wrote:</p><blockquote><p>Merry Christmas to all.
