On today’s show enjoy an array of music and interviews with homegrown Alaskan musicians like The Builders and the Butchers (pictured above).

We’ve passed the winter solstice, and now days are getting longer. Alaskans of old whiled away the dark winter nights with home made music – picking guitars and singing folk songs . But a new generation of Alaskans are making music in a new way and some are making a name for themselves nationally by using home made recording technology and marketing themselves on the internet. Join host Ellen Lockyer and her guests John Gurley of Portugal. the Man, Ken Sease from Mirror Studios and Josh Fryfogle from Make A Scene in Wasilla for a lively conversation about how young Alaskans are rocking the music world on  Hometown, Alaska this afternoon at 2:00 pm.
