Scott Burton hosts on Monday, April 8, 2019.
Tune in to Juneau Afternoon all week for a variety of Folk Fest-inspired music, interviews and more. We’ll start with this year’s Alaska Folk Festival opening act, the Juneau Pride Chorus. We’ll preview their Monday night concert at Centennial Hall and hear about upcoming events.
We’ll also meet Dr. Guy McPherson to hear about abrupt climate change.
That’s Juneau Afternoon on Monday: 3 p.m. on KTOO 104.3 FM, and repeated at 4 p.m. on KRNN 102.7 FM.
Tune in this Monday at 7:00 p.m. for Mind Over Matter with Elaine Schroeder. Her guest is Dr. Emily Kane, and the topic will be management of chronic pain.
Alaska has a lot going on right now.

- A 4% rate increase will take place in January. The City and Borough of Juneau has been steadily raising water and wastewater utility rates for more than a decade to raise revenue to fund improvements to aging infrastructure.
- Joe Balash is one of the highest-placed Alaskans in the Trump administration. In a brief phone call, Balash said he’s resigning to pursue another opportunity.
