Friday Feedback

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

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 whqr.org
  • 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 feedback@whqr.org
  • Through our Feedback line, 910-292-WHQR (9477)

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

Folks, The past several days have been a problem with the [Lumberton] translator with so much static that it is difficult to keep the station tuned.  Have you considered asking WFSU or WUNC to take over the control of this translator as a service to the folks in the Lumberton area?

I observe that WHQR/NPR coverage and commentary on the recent Big Gulp regulations by Mayor Bloomberg focuses on beverage company opposition to the regulation - the classic evil corporation vs defenseless consumer paradigm. No one seemed to express any shock or outrage at the fact that municipal government is telling adults that they can't drink a particular beverage from a particular size cup.

This morning (May 24) shortly before 10:00, I heard a recording on your station that I really liked and went to your website to find it on a playlist. However, there was no current playlist available that I could find. The latest playlist available was for yesterday, May 23. Do I have to wait until tomorrow to find out what the recording was? (I missed the ending, where the announcer provides this info.) Don't you provide a current playlist?

Friday Feedback for May 5, 2012

I'm back from a week's vacation, and picking up some Feedback from the last two weeks.

Listener Madeline wrote:

I'm glad to know that the station does not screen their comments from listeners, but sometimes I think "what a bunch of whiney people. Go ahead and listen to another station. We know you aren't giving anyway!" [The people at WHQR] are doing a great job.

Friday Feedback for April 20, 2012

Listener Francesco wrote: "I am a European living in Wilmington, and I listen to NPR. Sometimes I ask myself how it is possible that in America Jazz is so little broadcast?..."

Especially on week ends when there is so little to watch on tv at night. Yes because Jazz is the music for the night!  Instead classical music covers most of the day and nights. It's really strange that people have to hope to listen to Jazz in America, the country where Jazz was born!

Listener Nick wrote: "There are many programs that I enjoy, but NPR's coverage leaves much to be desired. They are biased, [and] lack objectivity, and journalistic integrity.
