KUAC to host a virtual visit with Martha Barnette, co-host of "A Way With Words."

The Zoom get-together is Saturday, Jan. 30 from 7 to 8 p.m. Guest Host John Perreault will interview Barnette about fun and fascinating words and their meanings.

“I'm really excited about meeting KUAC FM listeners,” Barnette said. “As soon as we started airing there, calls and emails from Fairbanks started pouring in. There was clearly a pent-up demand for thoughtful conversation about language and all aspects of it."

“A Way With Words,” which airs Saturday mornings at 9 on KUAC FM, is a fun radio show about language examined through family, history and culture.

“Once I learned more about all the great services that KUAC provides, joining forces for a fundraiser was a no-brainer," Barnette said. "AWWW is produced by a small nonprofit in San Diego, so we understand the importance of supporting this kind of work."
