This month’s episode of Dearest Alaska follows the agricultural pilot program Pilgrim Produce at Pilgrim Hot Springs, managed by Unaatuq, LLC.

While KNOM joins BSNC employees Tasha Lee and Dan Martinson as the season approaches its end, you’ll see there’s still plenty of work left to be done!

Dearest Alaska is an experimental audio project; the program will be available on this website and broadcast live on the first Saturday and Sunday of every month at 12noon and 5pm on KNOM (96.1 FM, 780 AM).

If you or someone you know would like to participate in an episode of Dearest Alaska, please contact KNOM at 907-443-5221 or dearest.alaska@knom.org.

Dearest Alaska: Bring your radio to life with the sounds of Western A-K.
