On Today’s show we heard from Mark Calvert from AWARE and Steve SuWing, a parent leader with the Father’s Community Café. Shona Strausser from Perseverance Theater was in to talk with us about this summer’s STAR program. Betsy Longenbough and Pam Finley from the Holy Trinity Episcopal church shared about two fundraisers they have on Saturday: a plant sale in the morning and an afternoon tea. Jody Weber from the Weber Dance Company and Philip Crowder from Juneau Dance Unlimited were in to talk about their collaboration and tomorrow night’s performance. Listen to audio from the program below. We regret that our first interview with Mark Calvert and Steve SuWing did not record.

- The festival sold out in record time this year.
- Inuit leaders and organizations from Canada have been lobbying the U.S. for the last year. Polar bear sport hunting is an important industry to the Inuit economy.
