Kevin Brown, producer of Front Porch Bluegrass, was interviewed by Verne on Tuesday about his new album, "Heroes and Sparrows".  The album of songs written by Kevin features Ben Winship, Natalie Rae Padilla and Eric Thorin. Release parties for the album will be held at The Bartlett in Spokane on Friday, at Di Luna's in Sandpoint on Saturday, and on Sunday in Tacoma.  

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.
