Wilmington Faith and Values

Listener Andrea wrote: “I have moved from NY to Wilmington in the past few years, and absolutely love having a radio station that makes me feel connected to the community I have transplanted into. I especially like Communique and the Writers Almanac, and love preparing dinner in the evenings listening to jazz. Thanks for making a 20-something Northerner feel right at home!”

Your stations do such a good job. Recently on Sunday Baroque, you had a Galliard on with bongos, tambourine and acoustic guitar. Why not throw in a Hammond H3 and a Fender Stratocaster and a set of back up girls?....  I had to cut the radio off. Sorry.
