A new locally produced program on KPTZ! Tune in for Deeper Blues with Chicago Bob Longmire, a time set aside for an in-depth focus on various aspects of blues culture: performers, styles, social issues, and more. Every Tuesday at 7pm Bob will focus on a different performer or topic for an hour to enjoy learning more of this uniquely American culture. Please also note Bill Mericier’s Jazz Notes new start time of 8pm on Tuesdays, following Deeper Blues.
Born in Tacoma, Bob Longmire lived in Chicago for over 40 years before coming “home”, drawn by Port Townsend’s creative spirit and by Puget Sound. Deeper Blues is his chance to share music and stories that underlie the blues, toward a better understanding of those who shaped it, enjoyed it, and developed it over the decades.

(First airdate: July 11, 2017) In this exit interview, Pleasures and Treasures host Marcia Perlstein pays homage to a very special woman in our town, Sweet Laurette. Her warm, delicious restaurant has been sold. Tune in to hear her memories of Port Townsend and get a glimpse of her next adventures.
Although it may be true that “everything changes except change itself,” as the Greek philosopher Heraclitus famously said, that doesn’t mean that the pace and nature of change can’t be controlled—-which is arguably the purpose of the Jefferson Land Trust, the venerable local nonprofit that has gained wide recognition as an exemplar of the land conservationist movement. This week on the Compass, we talk with Jefferson Land Trust Executive Director Richard Tucker and former executive director Sarah Spaeth about the past present and future of the Trust and the lands it stewards.
