Many thanks to Willy (the whale) Bennet for successfully troubleshooting a problem with our broadcast system on the South Side of Maui. Hereʻs a photo of Willy (with goggles) during adventures at the buoy with the French film team. Pierre Lavange, the main subject of the film, is in the water (in silver). We hear from the Director, Dominique, that it will be seen on National TV in France, and that they are looking for connections with U.S. broadcasters.
The whales are in the distance, and we have turned up the gain on our system to take that into account. You will be hearing shrimp, boats, paddlers, wave noise, and (if we are lucky) some end-of-season songs to culminate this season. The whales I hear now are probably ten miles away. Maybe later tonight weʻll hear something closer. Thanks for listening!
