According to my husband, in the highly competitive contest to guess the departure date and time of Kristine and Sharon from Akutan, my Dad said that there is always the Tustemena. It will arrive in Akutan on April 18!!! Thanks, Dad. Kristine and I were happy to hear that, because that would mean that we would be back in time to record Mom’s story before you guys head out for vacation! Ha!
When Kristine and I started working for StoryCorps, after training, Kristine came home with the equipment and I stayed in Anchorage to record at AFN. Kristine’s mother was in Unalaska so Kristine and her mother, Carol, were the first Unalaska StoryCorps conversation.
Kristine and I feel that it is appropriate that my mother be the last Unalaska StoryCorps conversation. So Mom, get your stories ready. We’ve got our listening ears on!
