From the Studio: One Heart Native Arts & Film Festival


Aislinn Rioux and Josephine Keefe came into the studio on Tuesday, October 16, to discuss the One Heart Native Arts and Film Festival. Leilani Finau, front vocals for the Seattle blues/rock band Daisy Chain, and who will open for Buffy Sainte-Marie this Friday, joined them by phone.

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.
