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.

Especially on week ends when there is so little to watch on tv at night. Yes because Jazz is the music for the night! Instead classical music covers most of the day and nights. It's really strange that people have to hope to listen to Jazz in America, the country where Jazz was born!
I still miss the second hour of Talk of the Nation and Bob Edwards Weekend.
Listener Jay wrote on Wednesday of this week:
Why aren't you airing Bruce Springsteen's keynote address from the [South by Southwest] music festival in Austin TX tomorrow (Thurs) at 12:00 Central Time? All the publications say it is going to broadcast live on NPR.
