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.
[music in] The great pianist Marian McPartland passed way this week. Although she had not made any new recordings in recent years, her program Piano Jazz was the longest-running music show on NPR, and one that we carried for several years. Mary Virginia Swain posted on our website:
I listened to this show religiously when WHQR carried it. Such a delightful show, and Marian McPartland was a gem of a creative talent.
