Today's special radio guest was pianist, composer, and recording artist Lynn Yew Evers. She visited the station to talk with Verne in anticipation of her newest CD Elysian, which will be released tomorrow, Friday, March 18th. This New Age/Contemporary Instrumental album features Lynn's compositional prowess as well as her skills as a classical pianist. She is joined on the CD by artists Will Ackerman (Grammy winner), Tony Levin (bassist), Eugene Friesen (cellist), and Wouter Kellerman (flutist).

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.
