A big thanks to all our generous donors. We raised $19,000 during our fund drive week and we added 30 more members to our growing community of contributors. Under the guidance of Larry Stein and Nora Petrich the week was full of wonderful programming and the station was brightened by the good nature and smiles of all the volunteers who answered phones, played music or helped out in so many ways. Our final impromptu talent show was terrific fun and the phones were ringing right up to the last minute.
(first airdate: April 23, 2016) Created by Al Bergstein for Earth Day 2016, this one-hour radio documentary describes the life of a most extraordinary modern outdoorsman, who died in January at age 104. A pioneering mountain climber, mountain rescue founder, ceramics engineer, kayak pioneer, coastal geologist, and environmentalist, this program features interviews with people who knew him: Jim and Lou Whittaker (mentored by Wolf), George Yount (who flew and kayaked with Wolf), and Jim Johannessen (who worked with Wolf on his pioneering shoreline restorations).
