More bluegrass! I am from the mountains.

Rinda left a web comment on Jemila Ericson's interview with Cathy and Bill Furpless of the Historic Amuzu Theatre in Southport, hosting Rock ‘n Roll Is Here to Stay!:

Loved your interview! Both of you sound great on the radio! Can't wait to see the show!! Love that era of music!

You could take a lesson from WFAE! I just moved here from Charlotte and was seriously disappointed with your station. I listen to NPR for news and stories, not classical music. There are other stations for that. I will not contribute to your station.

A number of listeners wrote on our website about the proposed baseball stadium in Wilmington. I won’t go over them here, since the purpose of Friday Feedback is on WHQR’s operation, and not the issues we cover. But a couple of people commented on our reporting.

Listener Jennifer wrote to us last week:

Although I'm often not a fan of the tracks selected, I AM a big fan of the idea and spirit behind Smooth Landing - which I consider to be an example of local programming at its best … I was blown away by the quality of music selected [recently] by guest host Jeremy Loeb - so much so that I wanted to write to say a) I hope you keep Smooth Landing as a part of your broadcast for a long time to come and b) … I hope to hear more of Jeremy's musical picks in the future. Thanks and keep up the good work.

During our on-air fund drives we receive many comments along with pledges from listeners. Here’s a sample from our Summer drive, which ended Wednesday night.

Donna and Brian Shiro of Wilmington said:

I enjoy Morning Edition and Science Friday! Great station with great staff.

Mary Stephenson of Myrtle Beach said If she couldn't get her classical music, she would be in such a bind!

The thing I look forward to most about when I can retire is that I will be able to listen to more of [WHQR]. I am not a big fan of classical music but I appreciate that others are.

George Edwards of Wilmington wrote:

Good variety, considering the demands for balance. I would enjoy more evening jazz, .... I would also endorse these shows for consideration; Fiona Ritchie-Thistle & Shamrock (in addition to the new Celtic music show which is quite good), Mountain Stage, and Putumayo World Music.

Maitri Libellule recently became a sustaining member of WHQR. She wrote:

I love it. I have it on most of the time here but my favorites are are ANYTHING Garrison Keillor, from The Writers Almanac, and of course Prairie Home Companion, the talk shows, and I love Car Talk. I like classical music but don't like the opera at all and usually turn it off then. But I appreciate so much you being there and all you do. Wish I could do more. Blessings to all of 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?
