Chuckanut Radio Hour featuring Brian Doyle, author of Martin Marten

Dave is a "human animal," fourteen years old and contemplating adulthood. Martin is, well, a Marten, also growing up and finding his way in the world. As Dave and Martin cross paths, again and again, they - and we - witness the awe-inspiring interconnectedness of the world and its many inhabitants, human and otherwise. Martin Marten is a coming-of-age tale like no other, told in Brian Doyle's joyous, rollicking style. Join us as we welcome Brian Doyle (author of Mink River and The Plover) back to the Chuckanut Radio Hour! Music by 3-Oh.

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 Receive one FREE ticket w/ each preĀ­-event, in-store purchase of Martin Marten.
