Friday Feedback

Fridays, 7:35 am, 8:51 am, and 5:45 pm
  • Hosted by

Friday Feedback is our listeners' chance to tell us what you think about any aspect of the operations or programming of WHQR. Each week station manager Cleve Callison selects a range of comments representing viewpoints received. Most of them are presented without comment, but if there is a specific question asked we'll try to answer it.

The most meaningful comments, for us and for other listeners, are ones where you give us permission us to use your full name. But if you prefer we'll use first names only. If you miss Friday Feedback on the air, you can find it on the website each Friday morning.

You can submit your feedback in any of several ways:

  • When you make a pledge at
  • Comments section on our member survey (the deadline for 2011 is December 31).
  • Letters to WHQR at 254 North Front Street, Wilmington, NC 28401.
  • Via email to
  • Through our Feedback line, 910-292-WHQR (9477)

We value your input on Friday Feedback. Let us hear from you!

Last week I read a number of comments from listeners who had bones to pick with us. This week, we’ve had many fewer comments, and I used the opportunity to go back and see what people wrote to us who contacted us by web pledges during our one-day drive in December. And that reminds me to address an issue I have heard a number of people ask about, and that’s the selection of comments to read.

Thank you to the members of the Thursday Morning Music Club. They invited me to speak to them yesterday. They had some very nice comments about the station and some very interesting questions.

Note: We received so much Feedback this week that we couldn't get it all on the air. The text below, and the audio, include segments edited out of the on-air version.

We introduced a few program changes to our weekend lineup last week. A listener who wishes to remain anonymous wrote:
