Our interview with Pete last summer
In April and May of the year 2000, Talkeetna resident Mike Fisher traveled to Eastern Europe to experience the landscape by bicycle. After his trip, he shared his observations of the people, politics, and culture with the KTNA listening audience in three half-hour journal-style essays. Before Mike passed away early this year, he requested that Lithuanian Spring be aired again.We think you’ll agree that the trip was just as good the second time around.
