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?
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!
