Diane Rehm http://whqr.org en Friday Feedback for July 5, 2013 http://whqr.org/post/friday-feedback-july-5-2013 <p></p><p></p><p>This has been quite a week at WHQR. For about four days, we were plagued with network outages and slowdowns that disrupted everything from recording network shows to seeing web pages to answering emails. It’s frustrating when someone sends you a message asking “What’s wrong?” and we can’t even reply to tell them. Thank goodness for Facebook and Twitter.</p> Fri, 05 Jul 2013 11:00:00 +0000 Cleve Callison 39240 at http://whqr.org Friday Feedback for July 5, 2013 Friday Feedback for March 15, 2013 http://whqr.org/post/friday-feedback-march-15-2013 <p>Long-time friend of the station Bo Biggs of Lumberton was concerned enough about a recent Diane Rehm show that he wrote a detailed criticism. Here are some excerpts:</p><blockquote><p>As a long time listener of WHQR, I can appreciate the balancing act of views as over the years, the station has ventured into more talk vs. music, using the many excellent NPR programs. In that reflection, I have always maintained that a balance of views, be they the left or right, Democrat or Republican, or more close to home, Titan Cement’s pros or cons, be discussed.</p> Fri, 15 Mar 2013 09:00:00 +0000 Cleve Callison 33247 at http://whqr.org Friday Feedback for March 15, 2013 NPR President on The Diane Rehm Show http://whqr.org/post/npr-president-diane-rehm-show <p>Gary Knell, the new President of NPR, was a guest on the <a href="http://thedianerehmshow.org/shows/2012-06-07/gary-knell" target="_blank"><strong>Diane Rehm Show</strong></a> on Thursday, June 7th to discuss the future of NPR, including financing, competition for audience and changing technology.

However, there was no current playlist available that I could find. The latest playlist available was for yesterday, May 23. Do I have to wait until tomorrow to find out what the recording was? (I missed the ending, where the announcer provides this info.) Don&#39;t you provide a current playlist?</p> Fri, 01 Jun 2012 09:00:00 +0000 Cleve Callison 17367 at http://whqr.org Friday Feedback for June 1, 2012 Friday Feedback for March 16, 2002 http://whqr.org/post/friday-feedback-march-16-2002 <p>Listener Jacqueline wrote:</p><blockquote><p>I still miss the second hour of Talk of the Nation and Bob Edwards Weekend.</p></blockquote><p>Listener Jay wrote on Wednesday of this week:</p><blockquote><p>Why aren&#39;t you airing Bruce Springsteen&#39;s keynote address from the [South by Southwest] music festival in Austin TX tomorrow (Thurs) at 12:00 Central Time?

It&rsquo;s from the great American poet Robert Frost:</p><blockquote><p>Education is the ability to listen to almost anything without losing your temper or your self-confidence.
