The week after a fund drive is a very good one for getting lots of feedback. Listeners who called or wrote in to our one-day drive on December 8th had some interesting comments for us and for our partners, Cape Fear Habitat for Humanity. For every pledge, Build Pro donated a standard 2x4 to be used to construct a Habitat house next spring.

I listen to it every am and my husband and I don’t know what we would do without it.
Wednesday, November 9: Political scientist Ralph Kornegay will be our guest live at 7:40 and 8:40 during today's Morning Edition to discuss yesterday's election returns. Send your questions to email@example.com.
Each week we read questions and comments from WHQR listeners. So whatever's on your mind, good, bad or indifferent about any aspect of our programming or operations, let us hear from you. You can send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll air it on Friday at 7:35 and 8:50 am, and 5:45 pm.
The Friday after a fund drive is always a good source of material for Friday Feedback, and we had a bumper crop this time, with comments from over 800 listener-members. Of course we’re very happy that the drive went over its goal by the stated end last Tuesday, and especially happy that we had pledges from 295 new members. So we decided to limit today’s selections to new members only, to see what the tipping point is that converts a listener into a member.
