Listener Comments and Reviews

A couple of weeks ago, Van Harden was gone for about a week and Bonnie shared the air with Brian Gondle and Steve Locker and my gosh I had no idea there would be so much chemistry. Funny chemistry! I think WHO should seriously consider the combination permanently. Don't get me wrong, I like Van personally, but the show especially after so many years, is a bit stale. I often go to satellite radio instead. But I would certainly tune in for the humor. Think about it.

I like Simon Conway, Mickelson in the morning, very interesting and politically informative shows, especially when it comes to local politics. I can't stand Van and Bonnie, though, so stale and "corn-ball" even for the corn state. Also, some of the "buffer" personalities between breaks are nearly unbearable. One guy in the evening sounds like he always has candy clopping and slopping around his mouth (dentures?) and can barely read, he's so slow with the info, get on with it! Plus, the traffic guy needs to many times he chirps in only to say there's nothing happening. then goes neighborhood to neighborhood and says the roads are clear. If you have nothing to report, then get outta here, back to the show!!

I was trying to find the petition but was not able to. If you email me a link, I will be glad to sign the petition.

I was very disappointed that you replaced the Joh Michaelson show with John Batcheller. who does not have a very enjoyable program. I would have preferred Michael Savage or Michael Medved, who are far more interesting. , I will have to forego listening to John Batcheller on WHO.until there is a better show.l

I was in Webster City Iowa listening to an orthopaedic doctor at 8 a.m. on Sunday, but cant remember his name. Can you give me that info?

Glasses, I wear them to read all type faces, I think nurses in Japan would want them to read prescriptions. And about funerals, I qualify, have attended, and was the United States Flag recipient. So there is the 20/20 and red, white and blue of it, WHO, Carol

Please replace Our American Stories with anything else as this program is not interesting or enjoyable. I just checked schedule and it airs everyday and twice on Sunday. I used to only listen to WHO, as did my Dad and Grandpa, but find myself going elsewhere when this program comes on. I know several friends that share my view and are also switching stations. Please go back to news, politics or info and leave this program to NPR.

looking for link by guest host from 9-11 AM on Tues. March 10th 2020 re: best info site on new virus. Believe host was Maxwell. Thanx!

Very dissapointed in the replacement for Jeff Angelo. Its bad enough having to listen to the flagrant bias on TV and now you have brought this to WHO. Mike Wicket ? states he is a Liberal and I understand that, but I just dont want to listen to it on WHO Radio. I hope you are not condescending to the wave of Liberalism crossing the United States.

Why are you not carrying the Dan Bongino show? Rush WAS great but he is gone now. Let’s move on.

Don't you ever update this site? This station isn't nearly as good as in past years. I live just south of the Missouri line and can hardly get reception. The commercials are enough to deter any effort. Is it only about revenue?
