Alaskan Morels and Operation Salami Drop

Mike Brummer of Hobby's Delicatessen & Restaurant joined Mark and Francis to talk about "Operation Salami Drop" - a drive to send over 20,000 salamis to troops stationed with the 42nd Infantry Division in Tukrit, Iraq. A Donation of $10 will get a salami to a soldier. Contact Stage Left at 732-828-4444 to donate or email .

Jay Moore of the University of Alaska Fairbanks Cooperative Extension discusses the bumper crop of morel mushrooms. Morel mushrooms, treasured for French cooking, thrive on land a year after it's disturbed by forest fires. Alaska set records in scorched earth last year. More than 6.5 million acres burned, mostly in Alaska's Interior, the vast middle swath between the Brooks Range in the north and the Alaska Range in the south. With the right moisture and temperatures, Alaska could witness a morel gold rush in late spring.
