Ignite! Community Theatre paid a visit on Wednesday, October 17, to kick off its Booklight Reader's season with the courtroom drama, "The Night of January 16th." This play by Ayn Rand has a fascinating twist: The jury is selected from the audience and the play has different endings depending on the verdict. Guests were (from left) Ingrid LaVoie, Mark Hartley, Alex Barclay, Dan Griffith, LuRicka Kougl and Mike Noel.  

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.
