Old Gold: Historical Vignettes of Juneau, Alaska
Compiled by R.N. DeArmond
One result of the start-up of the downtown street project in March 1985, was some discussion and questions on the Uncle Fat's Morning Radio Show on Station KINY about earlier street work in the older downtown part of Juneau. These discussions and questions led to the development of a series of history vignettes for broadcast on that very popular morning show.
The vignettes were broadcast each week-day morning from mid-March until the end of May, and they brought requests from some of the listeners for copies. The KINY management decided to have the vignettes printed in connection with the station's Golden Jubilee celebration, marking its 50th year of broadcasting in Juneau.
