Chuckanut Radio Hour featuring Brian Griffin, author of 'Fairhaven: A History' - with Musical Guest Stephen Ray Leslie!
Join us as we welcome Brian Griffin to the Chuckanut Radio Hour. Brians latest book tells the complete history of Fairhaven, that most southerly community on Bellingham Bay, one of the four original towns that were consolidated in 1904 to become the present City of Bellingham. A new arrival in 1889 said, "only crude raw beginnings, the primeval forest of giant firs and cedars barely pushed back to the hillsides, mud streets gouged out, raw with jumbled piles of burning stumps, flames and smoke obscuring the sky. On the beach, tents flap in the breeze and a few unpainted wooden structures suggest civilization is to come." In 2016, what would be recognizable to any of those old-timers would be the enterprising spirit of the latest inhabitants, who have done so much to create Fairhavens modern growth and economic strength. Brian Griffin, a life-long south side resident and recipient of the Mayors Arts Award, is here to share the story. This month, the Chuckanut Radio Hour will be held at the Bellingham Theatre Guild (1600 H Street, Bellingham, WA, 98225), and ticket proceeds will benefit the BTG For The Future Fundraising Campaign. Musical guest will be Stephen Ray Leslie.

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 features a guest author and includes guest musicians, performance poet Kevin Murphy, Cascadia Weekly columnist Alan Rhodes, an episode of "The Bellingham Bean" serial radio comedy, and some 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. The Radio Hour airs every Saturday evening at 6pm and Sunday at 9pm on SPARK RADIO, KMRE 102.3FM. Tickets for the Chuckanut Radio Hour are $5 and are available at Village Books and BrownPaperTickets.com. Doors open at 6:30pm, and you must be seated by 6:45pm as the show begins promptly at 7pm. Co-sponsored by Whatcom Community College Foundation, 12th Street Shoes, and Westside Pizza.
