In the information age, radio retains its relevance

Alaskans have ridden high on the 21st-century wave of information technology-- a dramatic tidal shift in the way we live and work. Most of us these days would feel somewhat incomplete without our iPhones, internet, cable and streaming video.But another mode of communication, radio, has stood the test of time. It is as relevant today as it was in the 1920s when the Territory of Alaska’s first commercial stations were established: KGBU in Ketchikan and KFQD in Anchorage.
