Jun 30, 2018

The Wood River just hit 1.1 million in red escapement, so its Special Harvest District opens to set net gear Saturday night. Plus, Dillingham songstress Teresa Duncan serenades us live over the air.

Friday's catch across Bristol Bay notched just shy of a half-million, pushing the season total to 4.9 million so far. However, we're turning our focus from fish numbers to fish tunes for this special weekend edition of the show.

Teresa Duncan just retired from Dillingham City Schools and has been writing poetry and making music since she was a teenager. In between performing three numbers live from KDLG's studio, Teresa shares her tips on songwriting, beating performance jitters and living a good life.

Catch this program nightly at 6 p.m., 10 p.m. and 2 a.m. on AM 670, and online at KDLG.org. (With early broadcasts Saturday and Sunday at 1:30 p.m.)
