At 106 years-old Emma Lommasson is the University of Montana’s oldest living graduate. When Lommasson woke up Thursday morning, she could boast of having met all but five of UM’s presidents. By Thursday afternoon, with the help of some loyal friends, that list whittled down to four when President Seth Bodnar walked in her senior living center to surprise her.

The songs on "White Noise," the latest recording from Seattle singer, guitarist and songwriter Noah Gundersen , draw comparisons to Jackson Browne, Neil Young and Iron & Wine. Fellow Seattleite Nancy Wilson of Heart raved, in 2011: “Noah Gundersen is my favorite new singer-songwriter. Music like this will never become dated. His timeless songs are full of true humanity and longing. Just what the soul doctor ordered.”
