My wife and I love WQED. We listen to 89.3 on our commute every weekday. The music and Jim Cunningham’s cheerful voice are good for my blood pressure (which, in turn, is good for other commuters). Seriously, Jim, Anna Singer, and many others involved with the station—plus, of course, the station itself—are Pittsburgh treasures that need to be supported, so we try to do whatever we can to help out.

WQED is an ambassador for Classical Music and the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra. WQED is spreading the word about the greatness and the need for Classical Music, and for me it’s sensational what this radio station is doing. I hope that as many people as possible can support WQED. It’s unique in the world.
