Soup To Nuts Live!: Mac & Juice Quartet

Mac & Juice Quartet

Beginning as an acoustic duo over a decade ago, Mac & Juice now travel the countryside as a quartet (acoustic and electric), playing original music described as “a broad-spectrum, rock & roll mosaic” with a vast stylistic range. Their latest release, Step Into The Light, is a mélange of genres that runs the gamut – from Stevie Wonder to Merle Haggard, with hook-laden songwriting and elements of bluegrass, jazz and Americana throughout.  Every show is a surprise, and this episode of Soup To Nuts Live! will be no different.

WHQR + Ice Cream = A Great Afternoon For All at Hugh MacRae Park

On Sunday, September 16th, WHQR members, listeners and staff came together for an Ice Cream Social at Hugh MacRae Park in Wilmington. Young and old alike shared in the fun as station staff put their backs into it and dug through frozen containers of delicious flavors like Strawberry White Chocolate, Vanilla, and Lemon Basil from Velvet Freeze.

The event was another way for WHQR to say "Thank You" for the generous support that keeps Public Radio vibrant and viable, year-round.  Make sure you browse all of the images in our photo gallery!

Friday Feedback for January 20, 2012

[A section of this post and corresponding audio has been deleted that incorrectly identified a contest winner's prize].

Last week I read a number of comments from listeners who had bones to pick with us. This week, we’ve had many fewer comments, and I used the opportunity to go back and see what people wrote to us who contacted us by web pledges during our one-day drive in December. And that reminds me to address an issue I have heard a number of people ask about, and that’s the selection of comments to read.

The arm of a crane placing bulkheads on the construction site of the Marriott Courtyard hotel bends under the stress, forcing nearby office buildings to evacuate. Onlookers gathered along Grace Street in downtown Wilmington to watch as crews worked to resolve the situation.
