There is something comforting about the way people who work for Cape Fear Hospice and Life Care Center are not afraid to talk about death-you know, that thing that happens to everyone but we mostly don't want to talk about?  As we get older, we realize how it affects us when others pass away and come to grips with the inevitable journey we each will take.

I’m just 'shootin' you guys [some money] because I'm loving the night time music schedule. The Jazz has kept me from too much tv watching during the week, and Soup to Nuts, Smooth Landings etc have been so awesome lately too. Thanks for your sliver of sanity on a cluttered radio dial!!

I found that by tuning my car radio to your music station while I was in Wilmington, I can still get it in/around Southport (smiley face).  I had been unable to tune into it from Southport.

Seven shark attacks in a month off the North Carolina coast – most of them causing serious injury – is record-breaking.  On the next CoastLine, we’ll talk with a researcher about shark habits, safety protocols, and whether you have anything to worry about the next time you head to the beach. 

Listen for CoastLine Wednesday at 12:06 on HQR News 91 3 FM.

Local artist Fritzi Huber curated a show called "If It Fits, Mail It" at ACME Studios downtown.  The show has one simple stipulation:  if the postal service would deliver the piece, it would be hung in the show.  Two-hundred pieces of art were mailed to ACME from 10 countries. 

The opening reception for this exhibit was at the end of June, but the exhibit is open until the third week in July.  The closing reception will be on Friday, July 17th.
