Public radio in Alaska’s capital city wouldn’t be possible without the dozens of volunteers helping out on-the-air and behind-the-scenes. If you’d like to be part of the team, whether it’s helping present All Things Considered, A Juneau Afternoon, your own music program – or answering phones during our membership drives, please contact Jeff Brown at 463-6425. Thanks!
