An EXTRA Talk of Alaska this week
It's getting closer and closer and schedules are getting tighter and tighter so this week the folks at APRN are adding an additional episode of Talk of Alaska so we can all be a little bit more knowledgeable when it's time to fill in the dots. The Governor makes his appearance Tuesday morning and the challenger, Bill Walker, makes his appearance Wednesday morning. Both live at 10am Tuesday and Wednesday this week (and both being repeated the same evening at 9pm on HD3)
 
Early Pledge Drive

tbt_banner.jpg

It's that time of year when we ask for your support to help us continue to bring you the bits of radio that help you stay an informed citizen (like the debates and election updates), an entertained listener (did you hear This American Life's new spinoff, called Serial?), and apprised of community events (the community calendar is always full this time of year).

 

Not only will you be supporting all of that goodness, but you'll also be entered into a drawing for a set of cross country skis OR a snowboard from Orion's Mountain Sports if you pledge by midnight on October 29! If you're a new member, you'll be entered into a special drawing for a photography package from Simply Lovette Photograpy -- just in time for the holidays.

 

Lots of great stuff this Fall for our pledge drive, including an entire day of retro radio on October 30 (and great food). Stop by, tune in, and pledge right here via the Donate Now button or by calling 486-3181. Thanks!

            The Wet Dogs are delaying their departure from Anchor Point. After working until the wee hours separating water from their gas and replacing fouled fuel injectors, the five jet-skiers are ready to go back in the water. But according to team leader John Lang, they feel the need for a shakedown cruise before hitting the open ocean.

            A long-time member of the Kodiak community recently published a book of poems inspired by fishermen and the other customers she's served over many years from behind the bar. 

            Having worked at Tony's Bar for 22 years and at B and B Bar for the past six years, Wendy Ann Waldheim has met and been inspired by many people. "Before the Dawn," a book of about 40 poems published this spring, is her tribute to those people.

            The five jet-skiers blazing the trail for a 2,000-mile race from Anchorage to Bristol Bay were waylaid before they got out of Cook Inlet.

            John Lang, who calls himself a Good-Will Ambassador on the Paving the Way Expedition for the Wet-Dog Race, said they didn't plan on stopping in Anchor Point, but wound up there anyway after getting some bad gas, which clogged their watercrafts' fuel injectors.

            Their next stop is Port Graham, near the tip of the Kenai Peninsula. There they'll decide if they should embark on the 100-mile leg to Kodiak today, or wait until Friday morning.*

            The route of this year's test run will take them on to Old Harbor, Alitak , Chignik, Perryville, Cold Bay, False Pass, and then into Bristol Bay where they'll head north to Port Moller, Port Heiden, Egegik, Naknek, Igiugig, and finally Iliamna.

 

*UPDATE: Lang called this afternoon to say he and the other riders will be staying another night in Anchor Point to install water separators in their fuel lines, and they will put their jetskis back in the water Friday morning and make for Port Graham and then Kodiak. -ed.
