Dear Friend… (February 2023)

On a fundamental level, radio is about making connections. In order to transmit a radio wave, the right equipment is connected to the right level of electricity. Through a radio, that electric pulse connects the right listener to the right on-air host or guest.

Each week, the broadcast schedule holds potential for life-changing relationships. Someone looking for work might hear about a new job opportunity on the Job Files show, or someone struggling with substance use might be inspired to fight for sobriety. Through radio, Western Alaskans stay well-connected: with one another, to the outside world, and to local resources.

Thank you, so much, for making the radio connection possible!
