George Scheibner

We received some calls and messages on Monday when listeners heard Donald Trump’s full speech to the Detroit Economic Club on our air. Some pointed out that there were some odd moments, such as when our local announcement aired right on top of NPR. Some wondered why we decided to pre-empt Here and Now to carry it. In both cases, at the beginning of the day, we were not aware that NPR intended to preempt the entire noon hour (and beyond) of Here and Now to carry the speech. A communications snafu caused us to miss some of the normally scheduled program cues.

Moon men, the Mercury, and Mayhem. CFCC Drama presents War of Worlds featuring WHQR’s own George Scheibner at the Humanities and Fine Arts Center Studio Theater, for one night only, October 30th at 8pm.  

You can listen to the broadcast on WHQR 91.3 FM--just remember to keep your wits about you; it’s only a play!

Last week I read a message from Scott, who was having trouble getting our webstream on his iPhone. On our web page M R W wrote:

Scott could also try the NPR News app for listening on his phone. it has streams of both HQR stations and has always worked well for me.
