From the Studio: The Modern Theater Presents "Lucky Me"

It's Wednesday, so that means it's Theater Day at Spokane Public Radio! Today we had the pleasure of talking with folks from The Modern Theater - Spokane about their upcoming show "Lucky Me." Rick Boal (playing Leo) and Brandon Montang (playing Tom) talked with Verne about the production, which opens this Friday, January 1st at 7:30pm and runs through January 17th.

Verne Windham got his start at Spokane Public Radio 20 years ago. “I came in to complain and they hired me.” He’s now the Program Director, as well as the host of Morning Classical and Concert of the Week. When choosing music for Morning Classical, Verne likes to keep the agenda as broadly defined as possible. For Concert of the Week, he focuses on the best of recent local performances, mostly classical in nature. For many years, Verne was also the conductor of the Spokane Youth Orchestra. He enjoys gardening, his vintage car and playing French horn.
