Shannon Haugland’s Island has no monkey business

Shannie

Shannon Haugland arrived in 1990 to work at the Daily Sitka Sentinel and has lived here ever since. She enjoys movies, early jazz and and her family of friends here in town. Shannon was our guest castaway on Friday, January 14th and brought the ten songs that she would choose to have if stranded on an island, perhaps forever. She would also choose crepes as her one dessert since the island is, after all deserted. Shannon’s ten songs, a recording of the show and a link to her crepe recipe are below.

Nat King Cole – Stardust

Django Reinhardt – Smoke Rings

Evita – Requiem

Paolo Conte – Via Con Me

Rent – I’ll Cover You

Abba – Fernando in Swedish

Superman II – It would be good to play the Fanfare/overture

Benny Goodman/Helen Forrest – I’m Always Chasing Rainbows

La Boheme – Aria Moonstruck: O Soave Fanciulla 3:47 Giacomo Puccini, Luba Orgonasova, Slovak Radio Symphony Orchestra & Will Humburg

Ace of Base – The Sign
