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.

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?

I observe that WHQR/NPR coverage and commentary on the recent Big Gulp regulations by Mayor Bloomberg focuses on beverage company opposition to the regulation - the classic evil corporation vs defenseless consumer paradigm. No one seemed to express any shock or outrage at the fact that municipal government is telling adults that they can't drink a particular beverage from a particular size cup.

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?

Listener Shaun Colley wrote in response to a recent story produced by Amanda Greene of Wilmington Faith and Values:

As much as I enjoyed the information I found the story lacking.

Listener Michele wrote earlier this week:

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.
