A long-awaited power boost to our HD signal is scheduled to be implemented today (Saturday May 16). HQR News at 91.3 will be at reduced power beginning around noon while engineer Jobie Sprinkle and Operations Manager George Scheibner work on installing new HD circuitry in our main 91.3 transmitter. Once this is done, listeners who have had difficulty receiving Classical HQR on 96.7 should be able to hear 24-hour classical music on an HD radio tuned to 91.3's HD2 signal. Thank you for your patience.

Hello. Please stop your radio hosts from reading the national and world news topics that be will covered in the upcoming NPR programs. It’s too redundant. Many times the national news hosts already preview the upcoming story. It does not give our own news people more clout - it just sounds weird. I turn the radio off when I hear the Wilmington staff do this.
In 2006, the United States Senate established Endangered Species Day to recognize efforts to conserve imperiled species. May 15th marks the celebration’s tenth year. Some endangered reptiles enhance the tourism economy in the Cape Fear region.
Four types of sea turtles lay their eggs along the coast of southeastern North Carolina: loggerheads, green sea turtles, leatherbacks, and a few Kemp’s Ridley. Once a hatchling makes it to the ocean, the sea turtle has a one in one thousand chance of survival.
Rube Goldberg, 1883-1970, was a cartoonist, inventor, engineer, and author who developed wacky convoluted ways of solving tasks. Example: A fourteen step method of finding your misplaced eyeglasses illustrated like a comic strip. My husband was graduate cum laude from the Rube Goldberg school of repair. He was not handy around the house…well, not in the conventional way. Original ways of solving problems was second nature for him. The inclination was reinforced by an inborn gene for frugality. My husband was innovative to say the least.
Local author Lynn Seldon came in to talk to us about his first published work of fiction, Virginia's Ring. The novel reflects his time spent at the Virginia Military Institute in the early 1980's. The book is very appealing to graduates of similary military academies, but Seldon says the story has something for everyone.
