I love, love, love everything about your programming! Home, car, wherever, WHQR is the station we tune our radio to. Sure there are some programs we don't care for but we have the option to change the channel because we know there are other WHQR listeners who might enjoy what we don't and we wouldn't think of asking you to change just for us. Keep up the great work!
