On this installment of NWAR, we’ll hear from Spokane native Marshall Peterson who, after many years away, returned, ultimately to found an art gallery in the West Central neighborhood of the city. Also, a song from the musical Cabaret is on tap, courtesy of Spokane Civic Theatre. We'll ponder the question: Is it still a tribute band if some members are descended from the original crew? And we’ll again quiz an orchestra conductor about the route he took to the podium. Music on the way in is from keyboardist Bogdan Ota, whose work has been featured on both The Piano Bench and NWAR. Bogdan offers his crossover program Bliss this Friday evening at 7:30 in the Salvation Army Kroc Center in CdA. On the way out we'll hear from the local Celtic band, Floating Crowbar.

After more than 25 years of teaching music, theater and English in San Francisco schools, Jim relocated to Spokane in 1995 to become organist/music director for St. Augustine Parish on the South Hill. Since around 2004, with the help and patience of Verne Windham, he has been able to realize his long-standing dream of doing radio. Jim specializes in classical music, but also can do the occasional jazz show. Jim and his wife, Carol, fill their free time caring for llamas, rabbits and chickens after having watched their two children grow up and leave the nest.
