Listener AD wrote in concerning our Myrtle Beach signal at 98-9:

I am very pleased to hear your station come in clearly, something I could not do in my car before at all. At home on the north end of Myrtle Beach, I could listen clearly only sporadically. Thanks for your pleasing format, and keep up the great work!

Last week's "Fresh Voices" commentary by New Hanover High School student Eleni Stoycos impressed Wellington Souza. He left this comment on our website:

We were contacted by a number of listeners regarding signal problems on the air which began last Saturday morning.

Jim Downey wrote about last Friday’s Smooth Landing:

George is playing Oliver "Tuku" Mtukudzi tonight and that is some of nicest, happiest music on the planet. Amazing that it comes from Zimbabwe, which is one of the poorest and most depressing country in the world. Thank you so much!

You need to stop claiming you don't run commercials. You most emphatically do run commercials, constantly. You simply insult the intelligence of your listeners by calling them euphemisms instead of commercials. Don't do that.

Bob Workmon never fails to make me smile. Of course he is always professional but his ability to add subtlety to his morning reading is greatly appreciated.  Case in point is the way he reads "In a World" as a voice over actor, is marvelous.

[I] Just wanted to thank you for your great event [Sunday] in the park [the Ice Cream Social]. I enjoyed talking with your staff I already knew and meeting some I knew by voice and name only; it was great to be able to put faces and names together. It was a wonderful community gathering and fun to mingle with so many folks who all love and support WHQR. And the ice cream was fabulous. Can't wait for next year! Thanks again for a wonderful event and for all you do to make WHQR the wonderful station that it is.

Listener Susan Hinger found a very creative way to give us feedback on something that we have been announcing. She wrote us a poem.

This week we aired a 2-part series produced by WFAE in Charlotte about North Carolina’s film incentive program. It got some reaction.
