This morning, NPR stations received word that the network has made major changes to its midday lineup. Here are the changes, starting July 1:

On January 18th, WHQR threw our First Annual Day Sponsor Celebration party at the Cameron Art Museum (thank you Cameron!). It was a great night and we tried to capture some of it on film. You might find yourself among the three hundred guests and WHQR friends who joined in the fun. Thanks to our volunteer photographer crew of Paul Reinmann, Lindsey McGrath, Beverly Pickett and Lan Nichols for these great photos. There are even MORE PHOTOS HERE!

If the NPR voice you hear covering the Aurora, Colorado trial of James Holmes sounds familiar, there's a good reason. The reporter is Megan Verlee, a/k/a Megan Williams of Wilmington, who won six regional Edward R. Murrow awards as a reporter for WHQR and now reports for Colorado Public Radio.

Starting this Sunday, 6PM-7PM, WNYC's Radiolab will be making appearance on WHQR 91.3fm and online at WHQR.org!

Thank you so very much to the 472 supporters that called and went online to help the station raise $27,125 AND send over TWO TONS of food to Good Shepherd Center.

Whole Foods Market in Wilmington: Hope you have a big truck!

Much thanks to our volunteers, Merritt and Mindy Blalock, Sugar on Front Street, Fat Tony's Italian Pub, and Jimmy John's as well!

It’s that most wonderful time of the year in Wilmington -- the week of the Cucalorus Film Festival. This is only the second time I’ve been around for it, but if it’s like last year’s, it will involve more films than one two-eyed human can possibly absorb, fun parties, and very high-quality people watching.

WHQR Adds "Ask Me Another" To The Sunday Lineup

Aug 20, 2012

WHQR's continues its exploration of innovative programs from NPR and other producers with the debut of Ask Me Another!

Ask Me Another is a rambunctious hour that blends brainteasers and local pub trivia night with comedy and music. Host Ophira Eisenberg invites in-studio guests and listeners alike to stretch their noggins, tickle their funny bones, and enjoy witty banter and guitar riffs from house musician Jonathan Coulton.

Where's George?

Aug 20, 2012

Longtime WHQR stalwart George Scheibner has been ill since early July. It took a while to diagnose what's wrong, but he's on the mend. He's recuperating at home but has been cleared by his doctor to return on a limited basis soon. Thanks to everyone sending best wishes!

My Top Five ways to get your kids into Classical Music

Wish your kids loved classical music as much as you do?

As a youngster, I had some great opportunities that transformed me into the classical music lover I am today.  I think that I was interested in classical music from a young age because I was able to interact and engage with it in a way that was fun.
