Fireweed Fiddle brought originals written by band leader and fiddler, Rachel DeTemple to the KUAC studios. Marked by veterans of the Alaska music scene, wonderful female harmonies and energy to spare, Fireweed Fiddle is some of Fairbanks' Finest.

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.
