Andy Kline hosts on Friday, January 11, 2018.
We’ll get to know coffee roaster David Thomas and learn about the art of brewing for Foodie Friday.
Hydrologist Christian Keinholz will preview his Friday night Fireside lecture about Suicide Basin, water accumulation, and outburst flooding.
And we’ll hear about spring class opportunities at UAS’s Career and Technical Education Center.
Producer’s note: While Sentinel Coffee does underwrite Juneau Afternoon, we’d like to clarify that has not influenced Thomas’s appearance on today’s show. Juneau Afternoon producer Scott Burton toured Sentinel Coffee over the summer in Gustavus for a story and was impressed by Thomas’s knowledge and an extraordinarily delicious cup of coffee.
That’s Juneau Afternoon on Friday: 3 p.m. on KTOO 104.3 FM, and repeated at 4 p.m. on KRNN 102.7 FM.
