KYUK recently switched This American Life to Saturday at noon, which left a vacant hour to be filled on Sunday evenings. The decision was made the fill the hour-long gap with two different half-hour segments. Read the descriptions below to find out more about the shows, and when they will air.

How To Do Everything
Here’s how this show works: listeners send hosts Mike Danforth & Ian Chillag questions—from “how do I break up with my hairstylist of 20 years” to “how do I not sound stupid when ordering wine” to “how do I escape a charging rhino”—and they answer them. Usually, given how little they actually know how to do, they find experts who can help answer the most bizarre of inquiries. How To Do Everything on Sunday evening starting at 8:06pm following NPR’s Headline Newscast on 640AM KYUK.

Encounters: Radio Experience in the North
Fans and listeners across the State of Alaska and beyond have been requesting that KYUK carry a show called Encounters; a weekly show focused on the nature around Alaska and other parts in the North. Join host Richard Nelson every Sunday on 640AM at 8:30pm for a half-hour segment containing a tight weave of scientific and indigenous perspectives, as Nelson bubbles over with boundless enthusiasm for all things wild.

Diane and Joe host another rousing edition of KYUK’s weekly call-in show.

A caller early in the program brought this idea to the forefront: “If people would take care of their dogs there would be no need for Bethel Friends of Canines.”

Other topics for this week’s show include upcoming Veterans affairs events, subsidizing water and sewer in Bethel, the upcoming ballot initiative on legalizing marijuana, and, once again, the most popular topic was subsistence versus commercial fishing regulations.

You can give your opinions and comments on “Talk Line” every Friday morning starting at 10AM on 640-AM KYUK. “Talk Line” is also available in a recorded encore edition every Friday evening starting at 7pm on 640-AM.
