The Spokane Valley Summer Theatre's 2017 season opens Friday, June 23rd with Always, Patsy Cline. This morning, director Yvonne Johnson, music director Drew Olsen and cast member Andrea Olsen (who plays Patsy) stopped by the studio to preview the show.  

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.
