By popular demand: WHQR's schedule will soon cater to youth audience
(this article was originally posted on 04/01/13 as an April Fool's joke)
High Quality Radio just keeps getting better and better! With recent audience polls and pledge drive feedback, WHQR has decided to reevaluate some of its musical offerings. Starting this month, I will be transitioning the bulk of music programming duties to current intern John Mortara. Though I will miss it deeply, I have been told that John has a good ear for what all the hip 20-somethings like to hear on the radio.
(John's friends, "Galactic Pegasus," will be performing their cover of Gangnam Style LIVE on the next episode of Crash Landings)
I am also pleased that I will remain as an announcer during the 9AM-1PM hour. By popular demand, the show will no longer feature classical selections. The new locally-hosted CRUST PUNK MURDER BLOCK will feature music from notable groups such as “Extreme Noise Terror,” “Doom,” “Cannibal Corpse,” and “Dirt.” As per John’s request, I will assume the on-air persona of Bobstein the Dragonslayer during our regularly-scheduled Midday Interview of arts community movers and shakers.
