I made a small donation to your fall fund pledge drive and received a very nice coffee mug. When I looked at it, of course, it was "MADE IN CHINA." When living in another area of the country, one of the local radio stations gave away coffee mugs. They contracted a local potter to supply a unique version of their mug. It was different as well as supporting the local community. Just a suggestion, it would be nice if the mug said "MADE IN USA" or even better "MADE IN WILMINGTON NC!" p.s. I love your radio station, it's the only one I listen to.

I seldom listen to HQR because I detest ‘chatter radio’, i.e. Talk of the Nation and Diane Rehm. And when I accidentally catch A Smooth Landing I do NOT recognize this as my station. I really enjoy Wait Wait. That’s my 2 cents, for what it’s worth.

We've received several messages about our recent debate on the Wilmington baseball referendum.

Does whqr have a stake in the stadium tax?...your short news blip that just aired about the debate last night contained only information about and provided by the "vote no" faction.

Listener Rachel contacted us Saturday about a problem with Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me – the program began with a repeat of the previous week’s show. WHQR along with a number of other stations were caught unawares by this error, which originated somewhere in the network and was impossible to fix in progress. It was quickly corrected, and the remaining 2 thirds of the show, as well as the Sunday repeat, went on as scheduled. Thanks, Rachel.
