Inside WHQR

At WHQR, the Force is on our side. Our Jedi goes by the name of Jobie Sprinkle, AKA Jobie Wan Kenobi. Perhaps you noticed that we had some on-air technical difficulties over the past few weeks. The problem was that we needed a new audio vault, a piece of equipment that holds our recordings and puts them on the air (plus other things that regular people like us don't understand). Jobie Sprinkle is the one we called in to install the vault. He's been the Jedi engineer for WHQR for over 20 years.
