The finding of the Bill Baker Totemland Topics tapes Bob Kern
has come up with is great. Bob had mentioned to me that tapes
of radio history in Ketchikan are very rare or even non existant.
That's why I'm glad to hear of the find. In 1971 when I first
joined KTKN and worked the eving air shift, one of my duties
was getting Totemland Topics on the air nightly. He truely was
a colorful and entertaining personality. It's too bad radio
today has ventured into the modern age of computers and automation.
Ketchikan has always been unique from a broadcasting standpoint
due to it's isolation and service to outlying areas. If you
never listened to Totemland Topics, I urge you to due to do so
on Bob's website.
