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!

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.

EARRS, the Eastern Area Radio Reading Service, made its final broadcast to listeners across the Cape Fear region on Friday.

During the month of November, Front Street Blues will feature a strong roster of female voices.  Make no mistake - women have a firm hold on this genre, and they're not letting go.
