Farewell to West Coast Live

It was a good run! And KPTZ is bittersweet to lose “West Coast Live,” the long-running radio program that retired from the airwaves, ending with its final broadcast of 2018 on December 29. The dynamic variety show began in 1993, and aired on KPTZ Saturday mornings for over 3 years, broadcasting on occasion from the Port Townsend Film Festival.

All of us at KPTZ send thanks and best wishes to West Coast Live host Sedge Thomson and crew. And we’re promised reprise podcasts from the show’s archives at

Stay tuned to KPTZ for a new program in the Saturday 11am – 12n time slot over the coming weeks, with thanks to host Charlie Bermant for stepping up to fill in until the new program is in place.
