As Heard on Morning Line: A Death Row Story

Jul 24, 2017

Our guests this morning on Our Community included Joe D'Ambrosio, an innocent man who went to prison at the tender age of 26 for a crime he did not commit.  After 20 years in an Ohio prison, through a stroke of luck (or divine intervention, depending on who you ask),  D'Ambrosio was able to meet Reverend Neil Kookoothe, whose education in Law and Nursing allowed him to percieve Joe's innocence and moved him to find a way to do something about it.

Two events in Anchorage this week highlight the journey, and share the story -

Our Community: WEIO Report Featuring Marjorie Tahbone

WEIO via Facebook

Each July, athletes, vendors and spectators converge on sunny Fairbanks to partake in an event that, in some ways is completely ancient, and in other ways was first held in this form in 1961, and continues today - the World Eskimo-Indian Olympics, also known as WEIO.

This year, KNBA is fortunate enough to have Marjorie Tahbone, a young leader and champion in her own right, contribute a phone report as she witnessed Autumn Ridley take first place in the Alaskan High Kick.

Live music this Friday morning on KNBA - 

Ukulele Russ is from Maine, originally, but now calls Fairbanks home - when not on tour.  Certain elements of the experience of living in one of the coldest cites in America influences his music, whether it's the timing of gigs around moose hunting season, wardrobe choices that reflect a less stuffy attitude, or some of the lyrics and witticisms included in his show.

Today on Morning Line:

The Rachel Baiman Band, with a beautiful Americana sound, came by and visited with host Danny Preston and shared some fantastic music.

Friday June 02, 2017 Ava Earl joined us for a Live In-Studio session as she begins a summer celebration of her new self-titled album. The young artist from Girdwood shines on the new release, her second full album, with well written and confidently delivered songs that were recorded in Portland, OR.  Nothing gets in the way of Ava's stories as the album was recorded with a minimalist approach to capture the same delicate but confident presentation you get when seeing and hearing her live.
