Friday Feedback http://whqr.org en Friday Feedback for March 7, 2014 http://whqr.org/post/friday-feedback-march-7-2014 <p></p><p>In this week's big news, listeners all over the region were anxiously tuned in to WHQR on Sunday night to see if we'd do it yet one more time. Frequent correspondent Nancy Geimer wrote to us on Monday:</p><blockquote><p>Yay!! RadioLab this week was a program we've never heard before, and we enjoyed it. We look forward to hearing another program that we've never heard before, next week! Thanks for all you do.</p></blockquote><p>I wrote back to Nancy and asked if could use her name. Her reply?</p><blockquote><p>Why not? I'm starting to feel like a minor celebrity!</p> Fri, 07 Mar 2014 10:00:00 +0000 Cleve Callison 51421 at http://whqr.org Friday Feedback for March 7, 2014 Friday Feedback for June 28, 2013 http://whqr.org/post/friday-feedback-june-28-2013 <p></p><p></p><p>Listener Margo wrote:</p><blockquote><p>While I appreciate the thought behind your … community commentaries, as a woman, I am appalled at the many sexist and simplistic commentaries from local women on your station. Most support stereotypes about gender and/or Southern women, and invariably deal with superficial and demeaning subject matter …. I understand the desire for the station to air local voices, but surely [WHQR] could air instead commentaries … that do not contribute to the sexism and stereotyping so prevalent in this society.</p> Fri, 28 Jun 2013 11:00:00 +0000 Cleve Callison 38907 at http://whqr.org Friday Feedback for June 28, 2013 Friday Feedback for February 15, 2013 http://whqr.org/post/friday-feedback-february-15-2013 <p>Here’s an edited version of a letter we got from Sandy Evans, president of the <strong><a href="http://ncjazzfestival.com/2012-festival-2/" target="_blank">North Carolina Jazz Festival</a></strong>:</p> Fri, 15 Feb 2013 10:00:00 +0000 Cleve Callison 31779 at http://whqr.org Friday Feedback for February 15, 2013 Friday Feedback for February 1, 2013 http://whqr.org/post/friday-feedback-february-1-2013 <p></p><p></p><p>Listener Nancy wrote:</p><blockquote><p>Some may say it's an overused standby, but thank you so much … for playing Carmina Burana on Wednesday! I will never grow tired of it and always turn up the volume real high listening at home or in the car. There's a past NPR story in which&nbsp; Scott Simon talks about why so many artists have performed the piece.
