Kathy Hope Erickson photographs elusive Deserted Island!

Kathy Hope Erickson was the guest Castaway on Deserted Island on Friday, January 7th, 2013. Lo and Behold Kathy actually took a picture of her dessert on her island! She also selected ten songs she would choose to have with her, if stranded, perhaps forever. She also chose pear pie with streusel top as her favorite dessert. Kathy remembers her early years in Sitka, lip syncing as The Supremes (see below) and traveling across the country on the program. Below you can hear the show, see Kathy’s list of ten songs and link to a pear pie recipe.
