About OUR TOWN. Have you ever wondered about the people you see every day around Port Townsend? The clerks at Safeway or QFC? The fire fighters or police officers? The barista who serves your favorite coffee just right? KPTZ’s new show “Our Town” profiles some of the fascinating people who live, work and play in Port Townsend. It’s not about the ‘big shots’ – it’s about the real people who make up the texture of the community. Host Maryanne McNellis talks to some of Port Townsend’s finest – from fire fighters to foodies, from artists to animal handlers, and even the occasional bus driver or teenage beauty queen. Listen in and meet someone new. “Our Town” gets you out and about, meeting someone new each time you tune in.
