Susan with her dad Harry, host of Raven Radio’s “Comin’ Up Country” for many years…and of course Luna and Spike!

Susan Chartier joined Rachel and Ken as the Castaway on Friday, September 6th, 2013 on a Deserted Island edition of Earbones. She brought ten songs that she would choose to have on an island if stranded, perhaps forever. We discussed her upbringing in Sitka, her family, friends, bad haircuts, little dogs with big collars and her recent medical training in both eastern and western tradition and we had time to listen to her songs! We also discovered that there is a dessert called “Better Than Sex Cake II”. Hear the program and see her song list below!

 

 

 

Susan’s Ten Songs:

skeeter davis; the end of the world
queen; bohemian rhapsody
allison krause; my love will follow you where you go
tori amos; silent all these years
beatles: blackbird
elton john; rocket man
lemon heads. bein’ around
florence and the machine; dog days, chromeo; i’m not contageous
ottis reddding, i’ve been loving you
