KPTZ is getting ready for our first-ever Live Location-Broadcast Concert! On Thursday, June 27th we’ll be hunkering down at the Wheeler Theater for a live broadcast of Centrum’sVoice WorksWomen’s Singer/Songwriter Showcase.
It’s going to be an amazing night of music with members of Centrum’s Voice Works artist faculty, including Pharis Romero,Yvette Landry (pictured), Kristin Andreasson, Suzy Thompson, Nancy Thowardson, …and more! Tickets are limited but fear not! You can listen for free here on KPTZ’s airwaves, 91.9 fm, and streaming online.
Please join us in welcoming the newest member of our Board of Directors, Steve Shapiro. You may know Steve as the friendly Pharmacy Manager at Port Townsend’s Safeway Pharmacy. What you may not know is that Steve has been a dedicated KPTZ Volunteer since its launch in 2011. His work as the station’s bookkeeper, as a writer for the Community Calendar, and as an administrator of our fundraising software make him a valuable asset to KPTZ.
Steve grew up in Florida, went to Pharmacy School in Georgia, and moved to Port Townsend in 2008. Of volunteering with KPTZ, Steve says,”the appeal is doing something for the community, and helping out in a field different than my everyday work. I really enjoy working with the other volunteers, and meeting KPTZ listeners. I look forward to being a part of the development for KPTZ’s future.”

From Wednesday May 8th through Saturday May 11th KPTZ will hold our annual Spring Fund Drive. We are seeking funding to be able to double the size of our signal reach.
Recently, we’ve received approval from the FCC to expand our signal from 900 watts to 2200 watts, so we’re poised to grow the station’s coverage significantly. We’re hoping to raise $15,000 during our shortened drive, and we’re inviting you all to renew your memberships!
This month, people throughout the region have been reading and discussing Pam Houston’s Contents May Have Shifted as part of the Port Townsend Library’s Community Read. KPTZ has joined in with a series of short readings of chapters from the book, and a 1/2 hr. interview with Pam Houston and KPTZ host, Sheila Bender.
The chapters are each only 3 to 7 minutes long, and are being broadcast in our news and information blocks from noon to 1pm and 5 to 6pm on weekdays, as well as during the noon hour on Sunday. They are meant to stand alone, not necessarily to be heard in sequence.
The readings were produced for KPTZ by Sheila Khalov, and read by the actors who performed the stories live at PT Shorts at the beginning of the month (Marsha Goldman, Barbara Thompson, Lynn Ring, Cris Wilson).
The extended interview with Pam Houston can be heard on Saturday March 23rd at 12:30 pm, and again on Wed. March 27 at about 12:25pm, after one of the chapter readings.
Join us and tune in as we take part in this fun community event!
