Maitri Libellule recently became a sustaining member of WHQR. She wrote:
I love it. I have it on most of the time here but my favorites are are ANYTHING Garrison Keillor, from The Writers Almanac, and of course Prairie Home Companion, the talk shows, and I love Car Talk. I like classical music but don't like the opera at all and usually turn it off then. But I appreciate so much you being there and all you do. Wish I could do more. Blessings to all of you.
In the quiet of the WHQR music library, on a slow Sunday afternoon, Willard Fields sat across from me at a large writing desk. His easy manner reflects a life doing mostly what he feels passionate about – radio and jazz.
Fields speaks with pride about his father who was one of the first black broadcasters in the Midwest, but music, it must be said, is what lit Fields' path in broadcasting.
