Friday Feedback for March 7, 2014

In this week's big news, listeners all over the region were anxiously tuned in to WHQR on Sunday night to see if we'd do it yet one more time. Frequent correspondent Nancy Geimer wrote to us on Monday:

Yay!! RadioLab this week was a program we've never heard before, and we enjoyed it. We look forward to hearing another program that we've never heard before, next week! Thanks for all you do.

I wrote back to Nancy and asked if could use her name. Her reply?

Why not? I'm starting to feel like a minor celebrity!

Listener Nancy wrote:

Some may say it's an overused standby, but thank you so much … for playing Carmina Burana on Wednesday! I will never grow tired of it and always turn up the volume real high listening at home or in the car. There's a past NPR story in which  Scott Simon talks about why so many artists have performed the piece. Were the words really written by monks?

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.
