Talk Line host Diane McEachern

This week’s program had a large number of callers on a wide range of topics, yet the program had an oddly small number of emails. Callers discuss the changes they’ve seen and changes they like in regional corporations; Dave Tranthum offers to name a walking trail in the ATG memorial park after the volunteer who steps up to spearhead the trail project; and the final portion of the show focuses on water and sewer rates in Bethel.

Listen to Talk Line live every Friday morning starting at 10AM, and catch the encore presentation Friday evenings starting at 7pm on 640AM.

He even has his own pet food brand very appropriately named Dr. Tim’s. Dr. Tim was able to sit down with us and talk about his experience as a veterinarian, dog mushing, and the free spay and neuter program.
