I need to take the next few days off, and so we’ll hear a few shows from the Ship Report archives.

The two part show that you’ll hear today and tomorrow is a listener favorite: the true story of the sinking of the commercial fishing boat Meteor on the Columbia River Bar, told as no one else can by Michael McCusker.

You can hear Michael Thursdays on KMUN radio in Astoria, with his insightful show, “A Story Told.”  Among the many hats Michael has worn in his life is being a commercial fisherman. Here’s his story of how he was the last man standing as the boat he was working on, the Meteor, sank on the bar.

We’ll hear the finale tomorrow
