Love the "stealth" campaign idea -- hope it's successful! Also love having the news station.

Thank you, June. We’ve been very pleased with the results of the Summer Stealth campaign so far. Thanks to all who have, like June, made comments with their pledges at Most of today’s Feedback comes from that source.

Today's guests are from the Long Bay Symphony, a professional organization based in Myrtle Beach, SC. New Executive Director Kim Williams and continuing Artistic Director Charles Evans told us about the orchestra, its chamber music group, its educational outreach programs, and their next concert. On Sunday at 4 pm at Myrtle Beach High School, the Long Bay Symphony will hold their next concert. The program is Tchaikovsky and the Romantic Spirit, featuring the music of Brahms, Victor Herbert and Tchaikovsky.

I prefer public radio formats in which there are two stations--one news/talk programming and one music programming. Since the second WHQR station is HD (and not available to all), it makes sense to mix news and music programming on the flagship station. However, I'd love it if the music was more diverse--indie music, singer-songwriters, Alt-Latino, "college music." As it stands, the music programming seems almost entirely focused on older demographics.

After many years of planning, WHQR has now officially signed on its new Myrtle Beach transmitter. The new signal at 98.9 FM will rebroadcast WHQR's main FM channel.
