Compass for the Week of 6/25/18

This week on Compass, we get an update on a local couple trying to hike 2,600 miles, from Mexico to Washington … we give you Part Two of our interview with the youngest person – and first woman – ever to lead the Nez Perce tribe … and geologists say that the catastrophic eruption of the Kilauea volcano in Hawaii should serve as a wake-up call for all of us here in the Pacific Northwest.


KPTZ Sponsors Make Music Day 2018

KPTZ is on the bandwagon to feature Make Music Day (MMD) on Thursday, June 21, a summer solstice musical extravaganza of performances and participatory events in and around Port Townsend, as part of the worldwide celebration of music.

In Jefferson County, 50 or more musicians will perform, teach, and lead jams and song circles. Besides KPTZ, where we’ll publicize MMD events all this week, there are nearly two dozen participating venues where music will be free to the public all day.

Spearheaded by producer-singer-songwriter Judith-Kate Friedman, Make Music Day Port Townsend events will begin at 8am and continue throughout the day until 10pm. At 8:30pm, the finale event at the Cotton Building on Water Street gets dedicated to the life and contributions of KPTZ host and producer Marcia Perlstein, who passed away last February.

Stay tuned for details and spread the word!

#113 Gary Keister, Old Alcohol Plant

(First airdate: June 19, 2018) GARY KEISTER: BRINGING LIFE TO THE OLD ALCOHOL PLANT. Our Town Host Maryanne McNellis interviews Gary Keister, the new owner of the Old Alcohol Plant. Gary has a unique vision. Half of the property is now a charming Inn & Restaurant, with spectacular views of the Port Hadlock Marina and the coast beyond. It features galleries that celebrate local artists and hosts classes and lectures. The reincarnated Old Alcohol Plant is fast becoming a popular venue for weddings, parties and conferences. Then there’s the “other side.” Gary has a unique vision. Half of the property is the Bayside Tower, which houses community members in need of transitional housing. The ‘for profit’ side (the Inn & Restaurant) helps support the ‘non-profit’ side. It’s an innovative and compassionate way to help with our housing crisis.


Compass for the Week of 6/18/18

This week on the Compass we take an incredible journey with a Port Townsend native who dreamed of becoming royalty – made that dream come true – then embarked on a life journey that has come full circle.
