Feedback: Issues with Corbin Signal and Comments from Donors

Mar 30, 2015

First up, a response to listeners who have been in touch regarding technical problems with our signal at 88.5 in Corbin. We are very much aware of some issues there in the last few days and engineer Bill Browning is looking into what’s going on there.  

Send your feedback to: WEKU@eku.edu, post on Facebook, send a tweet @889weku or call and leave a voice message at 859-622-1657

The best we can tell at the moment is that it’s another case of an unreliable Internet connection.  We apologize for the disruptions and we remain grateful to those who write or call to let us know about them, especially Karen in London.

As you may have heard, we are getting ready for the Spring Fund Drive.  It is, of course, a time when we are looking forward to comments that come in with the donations that arrive in the mail, online or on the phone.

In the spirit of the season, as it were, here are a few comments that have come in with donations during recent weeks: From a listener in Lexington (choosing to remain anonymous,) “We are regular listeners and are grateful we are now able to support you. We enjoy your great detailed reporting on a vast number of stories and subjects. Thank you so much!”

Judy and Joe wrote, specifically mentioning Interfaith Voices, wondering about why it’s only on the air Sundays at 6:00 a.m. All I can say about that is that we are always open to considering alternatives.  As you know, there are a lot of great shows competing for prime air time. Listener feedback such as yours is one of the elements we look at when considering changes.

Trevor, from Corbin, says, “Love the BBC News Hour, as well as On Point with Tom Ashbrook. Here and Now is another favorite. Will often listen to classical and/or jazz music in the later hours.”

A listener from Georgetown comments, “It's all good. Although "Ask Me Another,: not so much.”

We’re interested in your feedback, especially those comments that come with pledges.  Write to us at any time at WEKU@eku.edu or call 859-622-1657.  You can also post on the WEKU Facebook page or send a tweet @889weku.

Then tune in again next Monday at 6:31 and 8:31 am and 5:33 pm for Listener Feedback on 88-9 WEKU.
