Alaska Oil| Looking at the Special Session … UAA Volleyball and Dick Clark’s Legacy

Dave Stieren asked me to come on his  afternoon talk radio show yesterday to start a periodic discussion on Alaska oil issues.  In the course of addressing the issues which are on the agenda for the Special Session, we also touched on the University of Alaska Anchorage Volleyball Team, Dick Clark’s legacy and started toward — but didn’t quite reach, yet — bluegrass music.  The discussion is at the first half of the third hour yesterday.   The podcast is available at The Dave Stieren Show Hour 3 (4.19.2012).
