KPTZ announces the debut of Cats in Our Laps, hosted by Tossed Salad’s Phil Andrus. Two hours of music, short readings, and conversation. Open to humans and cats of all ages and critters of all species. On Sundays from 8-10pm, starting July 5.
The debut of Cats in Our Laps features readings from Aldo Leopold’s A Sand County Almanac read by his great-grandson, Peter Leopold Freeman, who also brings his piano artistry to the show. In the second hour, Phil will invite listeners to join in conversation about the comfort the outdoor world brings us in these pandemic times – whether outdoors in our backyards, in more wilderness settings, or on the water. If other matters are on your mind, you are welcome to add them to that conversation. Call in number: 360-2125-7270.

How long have you volunteered at KPTZ? I have been coming for the past year and a half. Just a couple of months from when KPTZ first aired.
Why did you decide to volunteer with KPTZ? I was talking with a friend of mine who is on the board of directors and told me they were looking for volunteers to help answer phones.
What do you like most about volunteering here? I like meeting and working with interesting people I would not otherwise meet.
I understand you play a ukulele, so you must be a lover of music. What genres of music do you like best? Classical, especially Choral music, Big Band music from the 40’s and Blue Grass.
Will we ever be able to hear you play your ukulele on air? NO!
