Deeper Blues

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.
