There’s a lot going on in the world these days and as such, scheduled programming can sometimes be preempted. There is a possibility of this happening so Monroe’s live broadcast, which was originally scheduled for tomorrow, is being rescheduled for Thursday, April 7, 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. Pacific (12 p.m. to 1 p.m. Eastern), on Johanna Wildoak’s “Wildoak Living” radio program on KZYX, Mendocino Public County Broadcasting. The broadcast will be live-streamed on the KZYX website here.
The program will also be archived in the KZYX jukebox for about two months. You can look for the program by date and time of broadcast here. It will also appear as a podcast on all major podcast platforms. Simply search for “KZYX.”
Below, a few journal entries from Dick Proenneke, beginning April 7, 43 years ago today.

April 7, 1979:
My arm and shoulder showing only a trace of soreness from the heavy gouge work so gave them another go at it by continuing with the burl bowl.
April 10, 1979:
I sanded more on my burl bowl. Nearly good enough and now if I had some Flecto wood finish I would see if it was worth the elbow grease that went into carving & sanding.
April 14, 1979:
From a poplar wood log I sawed, chopped and gouged out a holding device for holding spruce burls for hollowing. A wide notch with the end undercut to catch the lip of the burl and prevent it from tipping while I use the gouge.
April 20, 1979:
I wrote another letter and then after noon I would do a little sanding. I was surprised that it went so well. Maybe fifteen minutes work to finish the burl bowl that I then wrapped for mailing to the lady in Juneau who sent me the ceramic mug.
