NPR Signal Problems - UPDATE

Dear Listeners,

As of 8:40am, we have recovered the Morning Edition feed. There was a problem at NPR's headquarters in Washington DC and they were unable to feed Morning Edition to member stations. The problem was system wide and we have not yet been notified by NPR of the cause. We'll update you as soon as possible.

We apologize for the  inconvenience and hope you enjoyed the beautiful classical music and local news in the meantime.

Sincerely,

The WHQR Team

My Top Five Outside Activities with the Kids

My daughters Kate and Maggie, and my niece Jaden. At the Arboretum.

WHQR has a terrific art show up in the MC Erny Gallery called OUTSIDE and I started thinking about all the fantastic ways to spend time outside in Wilmington. Mostly, it is so easy to have outside family fun. My husband Frank and I have six-year-old twin daughters, Maggie and Kate, who love playing outdoors so we've found lots of easy ways to get out and have a great time for very little money.
