From the Studio: Million Dollar Quartet


Director Matt Wolfe, with Jeff Rowden as Elvis Presley, Michael Feldman as Johnny Cash, Matt McClure as Carl Perkins, and Henry McNulty as Jerry Lee Lewis spoke with Verne on Wednesday morning and previewed a few numbers of the Coeur d'Alene Summer Theater's final 2017 main stage production of "Million Dollar Quartet."

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.
