We apologize for not being able to broadcast this live. KDLG in Dillingham had the same problem during their broadcast, but essentially the audio stream is a high quality stream making it impossible to keep a consistent connection with our internet.

We will try to download the archive and broadcast it tonight, update on times will come.

Here is the link so you can give it a try yourself, you may need to restart your stream rather frequently but it may be worth it.
