The other night at a benefit the Ear was fortunate enough to meet Spike Walker, former crab fisherman, raconteur and author of the harrowing saga of search and rescue at sea, "Coming Back Alive."

He told the Ear that he will be appearing in a four-part retrospective called "After the Catch," in which the captains and crews on local favorite "Deadliest Catch" tell tales of their adventures at sea, and much more, at 10 p.m. Tuesdays on the Discovery channel. WALKER is featured in two of the episodes.

Unfortunately, the first episode of the four has already run Tuesday, but hopefully it will be re-run. For details about the shows, go to ( episode/after-the-catch/after-the-catch.html
