Listener Feedback to Others' Comments, Awards, 'Glitches'

May 22, 2017

From Trevor, in Corbin, “I've submitted listener feedback before. Mostly it's been to praise this station for the fantastic job it does keeping listeners informed, but I have also commented on certain programming that, in my opinion, is of little value to most people tuning in."


Send your feedback to: weku@eku.edu, post on Facebook or send a tweet @889weku. You can leave a voicemail at 859-622-1657

Trevor continues, "With that being said, I try to be constructive or helpful in some way with what I have to say. There are others, though, who apparently just want to use listener feedback as a platform to make meaningless observations, or start ridiculous arguments.

Case in point, the gentleman who called in to say that an announcer was wrong when she wished everyone a ‘good Friday afternoon’ during a broadcast because that Friday wasn't ‘Good Friday.’

As if that wasn't petty enough, I then hear another comment this morning from the same listener, admonishing the station for not being considerate enough when you addressed this ‘concern’ of his on the air. Are you kidding me?!? Get a life!

Anyway, congrats to WEKU on their recent first place awards from the Kentucky Associated Press. Any accolades you receive are well deserved, as you continue to be a huge part of my daily routine. Except for Q, that is. Still don't like that program..."

From Cathy in Nicholasville, “I just wondered why the station keeps glitching out. It's been doing it for a couple of weeks and is getting worse. It's like someone turns the dial to another station. It usually only lasts a second or two but is beginning to occur more often and for longer seconds.”

We also heard from a constant listener, Pete, about the same issue.

To Cathy, Pete and all who have been in touch about this, thanks for noticing and letting us know about it.

You are right, it was occurring more often and we were finally able to diagnose it and repair it. Actually, there were apparently two issues contributing to the interruptions listeners were hearing.

We’re pretty confident that it’s fixed but, we invite all our listeners to let us know if you hear problems of this kind, or others.

We also heard from a constant listener, Pete, about the same issue.

We’re glad to hear from you.  Write to us any time at: WEKU@eku.edu, post on Facebook or send a tweet @889weku or leave a voice message at 859-622-1657. You can also call 800-621-8890 and follow the instructions you will get.

Then tune in for Listener Feedback again next Monday morning at 6:49 or 8:49 or at 5:33 in the afternoon during All Things Considered on 88-9 WEKU.
