Alternative Talk 1150 will again be the home of this year’s Albert Lee Appliance Seafair Cup radio broadcast as it covers the action from the shores of Lake Washington, Sunday August 2nd. The station’s coverage will begin at 10 a.m. on that Sunday and include live race calling during the H1 Unlimited Hydroplane races, and related commentary live from Seafair Weekend!
Veteran broadcasters Gary Shipe and Brad Luce return to call the races live from their vantage point high atop the broadcast tower near the Stan Sayres Pits.
Sunday’s races put a cap on a busy Seafair weekend where attendees can enjoy such activities as time trial qualifying, aerial acrobatic shows, water sport demonstrations, and historical displays. Don’t miss the action starting at 10am with coverage throughout the day until 6p right here on Alternative Talk 1150!
