THE ALASKA CHIEF
Essentially the signature ballad for L. Ron Hubbards Alaskan radio show, a recording of Ron performing his Alaska Chief preceded every Mail Buoy program. At ballads end, with four bells and a jingle, he would next be heard welcoming listeners with a hearty, Greetings mariners! The ballad itself tells of the all too typical north Pacific disaster Ron had dedicated himself to curbing, and is prefaced by the following: To be played at midnight, on a Spanish guitar or ukulele with two jugs of whiskey. And with proper sad emphasis.
