Vehicle Donation Program WHQR Public Radio set up shop in 1984, in a converted bar in a strip mall in Wilmington. Founded by displaced opera lovers, the original Friends of the Opera, the station thrived by truly becoming a community station, supported and staffed by public radio lovers.
Ten years to the day it first went on the air, the station moved to a new home, a renovated building in the historic downtown. We added new studios, a custom-designed library and gallery for performances and exhibits, all warmed by blasted brick and mellow pine floors.
Yet so little has changed. WHQR is still known as the small non-profit radio station with a big reputation for unique performances, solid programming and a community spirit that covers southeastern North Carolina.
