Chuckanut Radio Hour featuring Leif Whittaker, author of My Old Man and the Mountain: A Memoir!
Chuckanut Radio Hour at The Leopolds Crystal Ballroom featuring Lief Whittacker, My Old Man and the Mountain: A Memoir - musical guests, The Prozac Mountain Boys.

My Old Man and the Mountain is Leif Whittaker's engaging story of what it was like to "grow up Whittaker," as the son of mountaineering legend Jim Whittaker and Dianne Roberts, and amid an extended family of accomplished climbers. Readers learn of his first adventures with family in the Olympic Mountains; his battle with a serious back injury; and his efforts to stand apart from his father's legacy.

Leif Whittaker was born in Port Townsend, Washington, at the foot of the Olympic Mountains. He reached his first major summit when he was 15 years old; he has since climbed many of the world's tall mountains. A writer and a photographer, Leif's work has appeared in Powder, The Ski Journal, and Backcountry. Leif lives in Bellingham, Washington, and is a seasonal USFS climbing ranger on Mount Baker. Visit him online at leifwhittaker.com. Leif will be interviewed by Jason Martin, Director of Operations and Guide at the American Alpine Institute.

The Chuckanut Radio Hour, a recipient of Bellingham's prestigious Mayor's Arts Award, is a radio variety show that began in January 2007. Each Chuckanut Radio Hour includes guest authors, musicians, performance poet Kevin Murphy, Cascadia Weekly columnist Alan Rhodes, and episodes of "As the Ham Turns" serial radio comedy, not to mention groaner jokes by hosts Chuck & Dee Robinson and announcer Rich Donnelly. The Chuckanut Radio Hour's first guest was Erik Larson and has since included Alexander McCall Smith, Elizabeth George, Cheryl Strayed, Sherman Alexie, Tom Robbins and Garrison Keillor, among many others. Tickets for the Chuckanut Radio Hour are $5 and will soon be available at Village Books and BrownPaperTickets.com. Receive a free ticket with pre-purchase of My Old Man and the Mountain (OR if you've already bought the book, with each paid ticket you'll receive a $5 voucher to spend on Village Books merchandise at the show). The Radio Hour airs every Friday at 7am, Saturday evening at 7pm and Sunday at 9pm on SPARK RADIO, KMRE 102.3FM.  Co-sponsored by The Leopold Retirement Residence, The American Alpine Institute, Whatcom Community College Foundation, 12th Street Shoes, and Westside Pizza.
