The oversized sample Permanent Fund dividend check that Gov. Mike Dunleavy used during his announcement of the historic (dare we say oversized) dividend on Thursday had a couple of treasures for treasure hunters.
First, the bank number is the Hall & Oates help line number. If you call that number, 719-266-2837, you’ll be given a choice of four Hall & Oates songs that will be played for you.
(Must Read Alaska tried it, pressed 2, and played “You’re a rich girl….” while writing this story.)
Then, the routing number is from the Tommy Tutone song, “867-5309/Jenny,” a classic on his album Tommy Tutone. Watch the band play the song on YouTube.
The Permanent Fund dividend announcement was made at the Three Bears store in Palmer, and, as is often the case, the governor’s staff makes a big sample check as a reveal.
