Mid-August already. Where did the summer go? When we started this project 8 weeks seemed like an eternity. With only 2 weeks left, it seems like the days are flying by faster than ever.
Interviewing and editing have continued this week – primarily for Leif and Fraser’s last 2 episodes each. Leif is working on programs about bird research and fire-fighting. Fraser is working on shows about fish (especially salmon) research and Split Rock Environmental (see link to their website below). The last 2 weeks of our project are going to be very editing-intensive but we’re confident that we can make our deadline.
In the past 2 weeks we’ve been pleased to receive some publicity. “Daybreak Kamloops” on CBC Radio 1 broadcast a story on our project last week. This week there was an article on the project in the Lillooet News and another on the “Radio Survivor” website (links to the latter 2 stories can be found on this webpage). We are grateful to all of these organizations for the attention.
I can’t say to what extent (if any) it’s due to this webpage, but in the last month, the Radio Lillooet website has been viewed by people around the world. In addition to visits from the U.S.A. and Canada, we’ve also been visited from Brazil, India, Mexico, Australia, France, Italy, the United Arab Emirates and – most recently – Albania. Thanks to all of you!
