We’ve been telling you that all our talk shows and daily briefings are archived for you on our CordovaTV youtube channel.  What you might not know is that if you subscribe to our channel (which is completely free) AND click the notification bell (also free), you’ll automatically get updates the moment a new post is ready.  So again, visit youtube.com/cordovatv, subscribe to the channel, and click the notification bell -- that will make you the first to know when we have new content for you.

Construction continues on the Northern Region Culverts Stage III project. Orca Road is closed 7am to 7pm Monday-Saturday, and 7am to 12pm Sundays to all non-essential traffic. The Alaska Department of Transportation hopes to have the project completed by early June, and they’re sorry for any inconvenience!


Another reminder that the Cordova City Council voted to repeal the City’s mask mandate and relax its COVID-19 Emergency Rules in light of Cordova’s high vaccination rate, high vaccine availability, and new CDC guidelines. Individual businesses may continue to require masks at their discretion. Masks will still be required at Cordova “Mudhole Smith” Airport and Alaska Marine Highway per Federal requirements for public transportation. The CDC still advises that people wear masks while in health care and congregate settings.

Remember that our town meeting talk show is available any time you would like to be a guest, suggest a guest, or just have us cover a topic.  It’s an on demand program, we can record at your convenience, and then the air slot is weekdays in the 10am hour on KLAM. You can also send a letter for us to read if that’s better for you.

KLAM listeners – We've got an opportunity, if you would like, to expand special talk programming on Saturdays to kind of change things up a bit… long-form shows, NOT about politics, but about "better living" topics.  We already have On the House with the Carey Brothers sharing home tips… but there are also shows to help you learn about new tech (computers, smartphones, etc) and get to know your existing tech better, car care and maintenance, hunting and fishing topics from around the country... that kind of thing.  If you’re interested in being a listener or sponsor of this kind of programming, call us at 3796 or email ‘saturday <at> cordovaradio <dot> com’.

You’ve heard the Carey Brothers for years with the ‘On The House Tip of the Day’ weekday mornings on KLAM… now we’re also carrying their longer Saturday show each week from 11am to 1pm, right after swap shop. James and Morris Carey offer home tips, share homeowner trends, and even answer questions from listeners.  So plan to join us Saturdays from 11 to 1 on KLAM for On the House with the Carey Brothers -- sponsored by ACE Hardware on AM-1450.
