Dear Friend… (June 2023)

As soon as the snow melts and winter parkas come off, bustling activity begins in Alaska.

Construction crews and seasonal workers return to work sites. In Nome, the first barge brings in long-awaited supplies ordered months ago. Soon, salmon will start running. Not long after that the first berries will be ripe.

The bountiful food put away, resources shipped in, and homes and public infrastructure repaired during the summer months will shelter and feed the families through eight long months of winter.

Through it all, at work sites and fish camps, the radio is a constant companion. It keeps us informed, entertained, appraised of stormy weather, and engaged with the rest of the community. Every day, your support helps make our way of life possible. Thank you!
