We had a full morning of theater in our studio today, starting with a visit from members of Gonzaga University's production of Mr. Burns: A Post Electric Play. Director Charlie Pepiton and cast members Nathan Patrick Nelson, Annika Perez Krikorian, Mitchell Gomes, and Daniel Martin talked to Verne about their experience with the dark comedy by Anne Washburn which is inspired by the "Cape Feare" episode of The Simpsons.   The cast also performed a couple of numbers from the show live in our performance space.  

Mr. Burns opens November 10 at 7:30pm at the Magnuson Theater.  More information and tickets available from the Gonzaga University 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.
