(First airdate: January 2, 2018) CAPTAIN PETE TALKS WHALES & THE VIBRANT PORT BUSINESS. Our Town Host Maryanne McNellis interviews Pete Hanke, owner of Puget Sound Express and a Commissioner for the Port of Port Townsend. PSE will add another high-speed boat to its fleet this spring as the public’s appetite for whale watching continues to grow. Meanwhile, the Port is grappling with multiple issues including a failing breakwater at Port Hudson. Marine trades are an economic underpinning for the region, with jobs at the Boat Haven rivaling the number of jobs at the Mill. Port Commissioners want to make sure there will be a steady flow of educated young tradesmen for this seafaring town.
On January 1 from 8-10am, Mike Sierociuk substitutes for Donn Trethewey to present Mike's personal list of the best new songs introduced in 2017 on his Spool Going Round show. Featured on this Best of 2017 show will be music from Fleet Foxes, London Grammar, The National, and many more great albums from this past year.
