It don’t mean a thing, if it ain’t got that swing!

Seaman Lindy and Chief Alan from Air Station Sitka guest host on The Speaking Tube and take us on a swing journey. Listen to their favorite songs to swing to, songs you wouldn’t expect to swing to and learn about their love of the pretzel. Oh yeah, they both have thrown a telephone pole in the Highland Games as well.

Happy Birthday to us!

As seen in our sign on poster designed by Sitka artist Vern Culp, Raven Radio turns 32 years old today. Technically, KCAW went on the air with a limited broadcast schedule at an earlier date, but March 6th is the “official” birthday of Raven Radio. Thanks to everyone who has contributed to the ongoing success of our community station since our sign on in 1982 and the years before~! more

This week (12-31-13) radio stations in Southeast Alaska say goodbye to a longtime friend and colleague, Matt Lichtenstein. Lichtenstein is the most senior reporter in CoastAlaska, and our regional expert on fisheries. He’s been at KFSK in Petersburg for 18 years, but on Tuesday he hung up his microphone and tape recorder and picked up his Grundens to join the SE commercial fishing fleet full time as a power troller. Be sure to listen to him sing “Ode to a Lost Cannonball.” more
