Brad, from Wilmore, e-mailed us, “I have not, do not, and probably will not listen to the new game show programs airing on WEKU.   Except for 'Wait, Wait . . .'  I find these programs, silly, corny, frivolous, and vacuous (without substance)."

By e-mail, we received this note from listener Joan, “My entire radio experience was changed when I first heard your new format.  (My hours listening increased as did my twice annual contributions of many years.) The only time I am very unhappy with your programing is, of course, during fund raising weeks."

We had a call from a  very nice gentleman who describes himself as “a night listener.”  He’s unhappy with the lack of overnight classical music on weekends and not a fan of the two food shows back-to-back on Sunday, namely America’s Test Kitchen and the Splendid Table.

I mentioned last week that we heard some great comments at the six community meetings we held around the WEKU listening area last month. From our session in Hazard, Adam asked us to consider covering the arts in his community the way we do for Lexington,  “I know you cover a wide area, not just Lexington and Hazard but all around but I’d like to see a lot more of these local events profiled.”
