Today we had members from the Coeur d'Alene Summer Theatre 2016 season opener Peter and the Starcatcher.  CdA Summer Theatre's Artistic Director Jadd Davis was accompanied by the show director Matt Giles and actors Brandon O'Neill, Nik Hagen, and Sophia Franzell.  They talked to Verne about the show and also performed an excerpt for us.  Peter and the Starcatcher opens Thursday, June 16th and runs through July 3rd.

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.
