Harold Balazs passed away on Saturday, December 30, 2017 at the age of 89. His artwork will again be featured this January at The Art Spirit Gallery in Coeur d'Alene. We hope you enjoy this compilation of archived recordings with "Uncle Harold." 

This morning we heard archive recordings of interviews with artist Harold Balazs and Art Spirit Gallery founder, the late Steve Gibbs.  An exhibition of Balazs' work, "One More Time", will run from January 13 through February 4, 2017 at The Art Spirit Gallery in Coeur d'Alene.

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.
