March 2, 1996, Ken Waldman survived a plane crash on a flight from Brevig Mission to Nome, which makes for a good story. Yes, he was lucky--the photo of the airplane above barely begins to tell it.
He has plenty more stories, and is always happy to talk to print journalists, do radio call-ins, visit radio or tv studios. Here's Ken's BIO.
Below are links and photos, and there's additional material on request. For now, here are quotes about his music, his writing, his work with kids, and his knowledge of this business. Here's a page with even more quotes.
