KUCB

Unalaska Community Broadcasting was recently included in the American Archive Content Inventory Program through the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, and this allowed us to create a database of all of the tapes in our collection.  The AACIP program then funded the professional digitization of 65 tapes.  UCB footed the bill to digitize an additional 73 at-risk and high priority tapes at the same time.  One of the tapes that was chosen for digitization was the epic Crab Terror, produced by Channel 8 in 1984.  You can find the program in its entirety below.

At the celebration, DPS Director Jamie Sunderland presented Larry with an appreciation plaque, memorializing his caliber as employee, friend, and citizen. It was apparent that Larry was quite touched, and that Jamie will truly miss having him on the job.
