From the Studio: Tim Behrens & Olivia Brownlee

Spokane Public Radio

It was a pleasure to have actor Tim Behrens and composer, arranger and musician Olivia Brownlee in to talk with us today about “My Favorite Toy Was Dirt: An American Story in Concert.” Penned by the late, great humor writer Patrick F. McManus, the production features Tim vs. seven musicians who interrupt, interject, and interfere with the proceedings as they play Olivia’s original score.

The two Spokane performances will be at 7:30 PM—one on February 15 in the SCC Lair Auditorium, and the other on March 1 in the Opportunity Presbyterian Church—with two more shows at 7:30 PM on February 22 and 3 PM on February 24 in Sandpoint’s Panida Theater.

Suitable for all audiences.

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.
