Compass for the Week of September 25, 2017

We attend a fundraiser to support four Canadian First Nation Tribes in their legal defense against a planned oil pipeline they say infringes on their aboriginal title and rights, and then we hear about recent medical studies showing that our health may not depend so much on what we eat as when we eat it.


Compass for the Week of September 18, 2017

Over more than 45 years of cruising with her husband Larry, Lin Pardey has possibly logged more hours at sea than anyone else alive, and also probably done more to document those experiences in books, articles, and videotapes than any other. Pardey came all the way from her home in New Zealand to be at the 41st Port Townsend Wooden Boat Festival, where we interviewed her live during the four-hour remote broadcast from the Festival of Phil Andrus’s Tossed Salad on Friday afternoon. This week on the Compass, we bring you a lightly edited version of that live interview.


#95 Teresa Hoffman

(First airdate: September 12, 2017) Our Town Host Maryanne McNellis interviews Teresa Hoffman, owner of the Port Townsend Athletic Club. She didn’t set out to own a fitness club. But thanks to hard work, determination and a couple of angel investors, she’s built the Athletic Club into a healthy and growing business. This mother of five spends part of her “off” time tending to eleven horses with her youngest daughter.


Compass for the Week of September 11, 2017

This week on the Compass, we talk with KPTZ Board President and General Manager Robert Ambrose about his past and the future of the station under his direction, and then we talk with the saviors of what is almost undoubtedly the world’s oldest surviving luxury yacht, which was recently in Port Townsend for repairs.


Free Spin Moves to Saturday

If you’re looking for KPTZ’s funky, bluesy, rockin’ Free Spin Program, take a rocket ride into Saturday as DJ Ron McElroy and his Free Spin program move to a new time: Saturday afternoons from 4 to 6pm.  Climb into the groove when Ron will be in the house, offering up a smooth mix of musical styles to spin you up to Saturday night.

NOTE: KPTZ hosts and programs are playing musical chairs over the next few weeks, so stay tuned to find out who lands where and when. Updates will also be available here, so watch this space.

Another Friday time change (TGIF): As of September 8, Phil Andrus and Tossed Salad are moving your savory radio-listening diet an hour later, to broadcast each and every Friday afternoon from 1 to 5pm.
