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.
