From the Studio: Beautiful - The Carole King Musical

Our final studio guests this morning were from Beautiful - The Carole King Musical which will play from November 9 through November 13 at the INB Performing Arts Center in Spokane.  Cast members Julia Knitel and Liam Tobin spoke with Verne of their experience portraying Carole King and Gerry Goffin in the musical which tells the remarkable true story of King's songwriting and performing career.

Tickets and more information available on the West Coast Entertainment website.

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.
