Fishermen do audio postcards, too!

Last week’s solstice party brought dozens of people downtown for food, live music, and an all-around good time.

While interviewing people for KSTK’s audio postcard, reporter Shady Grove Oliver came across two fishermen off the purse seiner Iver P. Nore.

Austin Hicks and Rafe Rilnus are both from the lower 48 and were very excited to be on the radio—so excited, in fact, that they asked if they could try their hand at interviewing.

They went around for a few minutes talking to people enjoying the evening.

Oliver told them KSTK would run their interviews on the radio- so here they are.

This is an audio postcard from the solstice party compiled by fishermen Austin Hicks and Rafe Rilnus [let us know if this is not how to spell your name].
