Summer is approaching (despite a little snow). That means flowers are growing, and so are the volunteers! We talk personal growth and hitting the 11-month mark in this week’s audio blog.
The winter sea ice is in its final break-up stages, and as summer nears, Tyler reflects on the opportunities a year in Alaska has afforded him: like the chance to accompany a real-life duck hunt.
For this week’s audioblog, Davis takes you behind the scenes of “AK Country” and discusses what kind of country music he likes to play on the show and how he prepares every week for it, and he shares some samples of the latest episode from this Wednesday.
The KNOMers enjoy a theatrical weekend at the premiere of “Good in the Country,” a “Nome-grown” musical set in Nome.
In this week’s volunteer audioblog, Lauren shares messages from local elders about staying sober and finding hope. They’re radio spots she’s produced recently for KNOM.
Spring is back in Alaska, and Tyler’s ready. “I can’t overstate how excited I am for the sun to come back,” he says. “When I close my eyes, I can taste the blueberries, cloudberries, and salmon that will soon start to appear on our table.”

In this week’s audio blog, Lauren and her fellow volunteers are looking back to Iditarod 2017 — and embracing their live reports, faults and all.
“Whether it’s the people who race or the people who come to watch,” Tyler says, “Iditarod’s energy will always be enough to keep this armchair musher at the edge of his seat.” At Iditarod’s end, Tyler and his fellow volunteers chat about the Last Great Race.
