We begin this week with a call from Ann, from Winchester, “I just want to thank you for your excellent programming. If I’m in the car, I’m listening to WEKU and, most of those days in conversation over dinner, I will comment on some sort of news that I heard on NPR."
Ann continues, " My husband and I both are contributors, monthly supporters, and again we thank you for your programming,”
From Lexington, here’s Fred, obviously a Classic 102.1 listener, “I really appreciate having a good, consistent quality classical and jazz station to listen to with little commercial interruption and just good music.”
Before I sign off this week, a special note: We have posted the holiday program schedule for both Classic 102.1 and the WEKU stations on the website at WEKU dot fm.
This year’s holiday shows began, of course with Thanksgiving programming and will continue through New Year’s Day.
In the coming weeks, you’ll hear shows like Advent Voices, The Big Tiny Desk Holiday Special, Chanukah in Story and Song, jazz and blues Christmas music and favorites such as Tinsel Tales and Jonathan Winter’s reading of Dickens’ A Christmas Carol.
Of course, there’s the annual New Year’s Eve Toast of the Nation and New Year’s Day ‘Live” from Vienna plus numerous holiday-oriented performances from the Lexington Philharmonic and shows from Christ Church Cathedral.
We will, of course, be interested in your feedback about this year’s holiday schedule and about the individual shows.
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 there.
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.
