SPR's 40th Anniversary: Auntie's Voices with Nancy Roth

Julia Sweeney

In celebration of Spokane Public Radio's 40th Anniversary, we present this episode from the archives, "Auntie's Voices: Nancy Roth Interviews Julia Sweeney," which originally aired in the 1990s. 

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.
