Thanks, All Things Considered, for helping me consider more things! -- Stacey

Wendy & Jerry Fingerhut are Executive Director and Treasurer respectively of Opera Wilmington. They wrote to Gina Gambony following a report and interview last week:

Thank you SO MUCH, Gina, for this wonderful interview and exposure for our new opera company, Opera Wilmington, showcasing the fabulous homegrown and local talent.

And Artistic Director Nancy King of UNCW wrote:

I can’t express enough my personal gratitude to each and every one of you who helped promote Merry Widow for this past weekend. It was, as you may suspect, a dream come true. From the interviews, to the promo spots, HQR was the most supportive partner possible. To have had the show sell out prior to our opening night was the ultimate performer’s fantasy realized! (and has never happened to me before, so thanks for that memory!!) I look forward to many more years of collaboration between HQR and Opera Wilmington!

Last week we ended our summer “Keep it Short” campaign in just 2 days – thank you, again. As always, we go lots of comments about the station. Here are some more I didn’t have time for last week:

Cape Fear Museum is proud to support WHQR. Thank you for your time, talent and dedication to the local museum community.

Dorothy from Wilmington wrote:

Thanks to all the great staff for their hard work and to George for all the terrific music. And here's to the Nature Conservancy and the American Society of Foresters.

Just moved to NC from NJ. Been a NPR listener since the '70s (WGBH, WQED, WHYY, WNYC). So happy to have a NPR station to listen to in NC.

Cherry Beasley from Lumberton wrote:

I especially like the music programs and Saturday programs. I have already renewed this year, but thought a little more would be helpful.

Feeding my NPR addiction. It's brain food. Thanks, All Things Considered, for helping me consider more things!

Sam Mitchell from Southport wrote:

The M.C. Erny Gallery is terrific.  I love the NPR news and your classical music.  I also enjoy the Cinematique independent film series at Thalian Hall.  Keep up the great work.

Karen Carver and Steve Bostic from Leland wrote:

We love streaming our home programming while traveling!

Sherri Kitter and Emmily Wilson from Southport wrote:

Please, please, please broadcast BOTH hours of Diane Rehm.

Listen to WHQR whenever I am in the car (provided my teenage girls allow it!)

A.W. Cotton wrote:

I drive from Shallotte to Wilmington Monday mornings and home Tuesday evenings to babysit our grand baby. I catch up on world and national news on Monday morning and catch some wonderful music on the way home on Tuesdays. Thank you for adding so much to my drive!

Love Magnolia Fatback hour! It's the only station I listen to in my car. I'm a realtor and when people drive with me, they love the classical music. People from out of town love driving with me--and then become members!

Ellen Hargrave said:

we have to support the public station because it’s so wonderful.
