An anonymous long-time friend of the station from Lumberton sent us a generous end-of-year donation along with this note:

Everytime I listen to Diane Rehm, my enthusiasm tends to be dampened. But never mind me. With the exception of my feelings that the station leans more left than it ever has before and is not balanced in certain program choices … the music is non-political and has no ideology, and I enjoy that – so I will donate.

We thank anonymous both for the contribution and the comment.
