Not all stations are equal

Just a quick note to say something that I’ve wanted to pass on for some time.  Having travelled around the western states over the last years and searched out the classical stations, I have found that not all stations are equal. It has become clear that the music selection and the quality of personnel at KQAC is far above others that I have heard.  In the same way, I didn’t realize how special Portland is until I spent time in LA and Phoenix. Life is indeed good. Thank you for your significant part in our life here. Yes, I believe my membership is current. –Brent

Couldn’t Be More Grateful

I came home after a Long day of seeing clients who are struggling with depression and addiction.  And I leave my radio on for my cats to your station.  I just got off of work tonight, right when you started playing Gorecki’s Symphone No. 3 in it’s entirety.  I couldn’t be more grateful.  I Love this song and to come home after today to it – I am thankful. In caring, –Kellyjoy

Christmas Baking Music

Just busy on baking Christmas cookies – and your broadcast gives a perfect background for this job! Many thanks from Thailand. –Wolfgan

Appreciates All Classical Portland

Yes, indeed, I do appreciate your station, your calendar and your e-letter. All of these reflect the pride you take in your work.  Keep it up.  Get rich if you can.  And keep on doing what you do so well. –Richard in Portland

Peter and the Wolf, Flashback

Thank you for playing Peter and the Wolf!  Made me stop and pull out the old LP I listened to as a child with this on side A and Snow White, Cinderella, Rapunzel, etc., on side B! Great hearing this again! –Steph

Listens to WQXR, KING, WGBH and now KQAC

I live in the Boston area, and through the internet have the option of listening to a number of fine all-classical, commercial-free stations. WQXR in New York, KING from Seattle, and our own WGBH are three of my favorites. The first time I dialed up KQAC was approximately a month ago, and now I find myself, increasingly, a listener. I have not as yet dissected the reasons for its appeal, except there is a freshness to the programming with a tone that manages to be serious without being pretentious. Whatever you are doing right, I hope it continues. –Bill

Listens on iPad

I have just recently discovered your radio station via the TuneIn app on my iPad and have to say you are doing a wonderful and professional job. Thank you. –John in Bellingen, New South Wales, Australia

Appreciates everyone at All Classical

Although I cannot afford to contribute at the moment I just wanted to appreciate everyone at All Classical for everything you do day to day.  I assume I am below the median age of the majority of All Classical listeners but I greatly enjoy listening to the musical selection on the way to and from work to home.  It really sets me up for a great day at work and brings me back to a stress free feeling when I leave work. Thanks again, –Danny

Sweet Dreams with All Classical in Japan

Hello. It’s been more than 6 months since I started listening to wonderful tunes of your station. We have a 7 ( 8 at your summer time) hour time difference between Portland and Tokyo, so I always listen to your classical music at midnight just before going to bed. Maybe you intend to give tunes to the U.S. locals as a wonderful wakeup for mornings at that hour. However, I fully enjoy your programs for a nice sleep with sweet dreams here in Japan. I imagine how your city is like when you report weather forecast. It is a shame that I have never been to Portland before and it must be a nice city even though I have visited the U.S. for more than ten times. I hope that your business keeps going on for listeners all over the world. –Kazuhiko in Chiba, Japan

Listening in the UK

We have classical music stations here in the UK but we tune to your station all the time because we so enjoy the choices of music and your presenters. We hear Brandi as the timings fit our day. We are fascinated that you seem as obsessed with the weather as we are here. Thank you and keep up the good work. –Adrienne & Peter in South Coast, Poole Dorset
