Now web listeners can experience what our HD2 listeners have enjoyed for years: our 24-hour all-classical channel. No matter whether you're at home, on your boat, or traveling around the world, you can join us here at the station.
At present the service consists of a classical service from Minnesota Public Radio, with brief local announcements. As we move forward, you'll hear more local content on the channel.
Every now and then you may hear a WHQR announcer say "This CD was part of a major donation by Lee Fetner and Jeff Wingfield." Major, indeed! Lee and Jeff recently donated their entire collection of about 1350 classical CDs to the station. This is not only a huge addition to our 7000-CD classical library, it’s the biggest single donation of CDs to WHQR of all time.
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?
I'm back from a week's vacation, and picking up some Feedback from the last two weeks.

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.
