"I thoroughly enjoy Anchorage Memories,
it is absolutely magnificent" Robert

“I’ve learned a lot about my hometown of Anchorage, and you’ve jogged memories of things I haven’t thought about for years. I can only say YAY!”  Juanita.

Do you remember

“Mukluk Telegraph”?

KENI radio in Anchorage, featured “Mukluk Telegraph”, where they broadcast personal messages for people living in rural Alaska who were far from the nearest phone.

On Mukluk Telegraph you heard messages like -

“flying over from Anchorage this Thursday. should land by noon. Please be there to pick me up.”

Well, we've come a long way since then. Now we use email.

Do you remember using two tin cans and a bit of string to talk to your friend?

Most of the time you were saying “hello, hello, can you hear me now?” And of course, your friend kept saying “what?”

Well, even though they were fun to make and use, today you can put away that string and those tin cans because we use the instant world of email.

But with a few keystrokes, you can instantly send us your questions, comments, or just say hello. Ok, it's not as much fun as “Mukluk Telegraph” or even a string and two tin cans. “Can you hear me now?”
