Singer/Songwriter Wes Colquette and Alaska Live host Lori Neufeld

Born and raised in Alaska, Wes Colquette writes songs from the heart and the Alaskan experience. Colquette is releasing his debut "Gypsy Heart" in just a couple weeks and shared many selections and the stories behind the tunes. One song that Colquette played did make it on the show but not on the album because he had just wrote it hours before the show.

Lori’s love for public broadcasting runs deep. She was raised on Car Talk, Morning Edition, Adventures in Good Music with Karl Haas, and later while studying wildlife biology at Bethel College in North Newton, Kansas, she realized that if she helped answer phones during the fund drive at KMUW, she could meet and chat with the hosts of locally produced shows.
