Listener Ned wrote from Topsail:

NPR is ending Talk of the Nation on July 1st. Is it possible that WHQR will at that time broadcast both hours of the Diane Rehm show? That would be great.

This Saturday's Metropolitan Opera live broadcast of Wagner's Gotterdamerung will begin at noon, an hour earlier than usual. As a result our regular broadcast of This American Life and portions of All Things Considered will be pre-empted. TAL fans, please tune in to our encore presentation on Friday, Feb. 17th at 7:00pm on 91.3. Thank you!
