For the past few years, a few of us have considered the idea of having an ATA "theme song". We investigated a few options. The best alternative involved creative Fairbanks genius Craig Compeau. Craig has been using well-known melodies and modifying the lyrics to fit his views. Many of the resulting songs are humorous criticisms of government. Others focus on life in Alaska. Everyone can agree that they are well done.
ATA Director Dan Tempel heard a song that he liked and realized that the lyrics could be modified to tell a great story about Alaska trappers. We asked Craig if he could work his magic. Craig enlisted the aid of local singer Roger McGill. You can hear the result by clicking on the button below. We hope you like it.
If you want to download the song, go to Craig's website: www.alaskansongs.com.
