Remembering Actress Patty Duke

Patty Duke, award-winning, nationally-acclaimed American actress, died yesterday in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, where she lived with her husband Michael Pierce the last 25 years. Patty talked with Verne back in July 2013 about her role in the Spokane theater performance of The Giver.  In remembrance of her, here is that interview from 3 years ago.

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.
