Thirty-three years ago today, March 6, 1982, Raven Radio KCAW signed on as your community radio station. As seen on the sweatshirts around town and the hundreds of mugs populating kitchens around the world, Raven Radio has been adopted into the homes of listeners with an appetite for Southeast news and a ear for lively, dynamic programming. And it all started with a lone voice, cast out in to space in the hope that someone – anyone – was listening.
This is Raven Radio, KCAW in Sitka, partially funded by the community of Sitka as well as the Alaska Broadcasting Commission, signing on the air…
Our unofficial sign on day was February 19, 1982 when Marika Partridge got on the host microphone. Below is an audio artifact from that day.
Thank you to all our listeners, from Yakutat to Port Alexander, Sitka to Kake, Pelican, Elfin Cove, Tenakee, and Angoon, who keep Raven Radio thriving!
