Every Tuesday at 7pm Pacific Time, Chicago Bob presents an hour of blues on KPTZ FM, 91.9 Radio in Port Townsend WA. We also stream it live worldwide on KPTZ.org, with archives available for two weeks after each show. The format is 2/3 music and 1/3 stories and background. We talk about the musicians, studio sessions, the times and the trends, stories to make the music come alive again.

Each week has a topic to tie together the music and stories – here are some shows from past months. (Click the months to open the actual audio files.)
