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'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.
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!
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.
