The Guitar Hour: Larry Almeida and Paul Grove

Part 2 of the Guitar Hour, featuring Larry Almeida and Paul Grove

Verne and Leon were joined in the studio today by two special guests, local guitarists Larry Almeida and Paul Grove.

The 2019 "Friends of the Guitar Hour" concert series will feature Almeida at the Jacklin Arts and Cultural Center in Post Falls this Friday at 7:30 PM.

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.
