As we continue our series on how arts organizations are coping with the COVID-19 pandemic, we hear from Mike Ferrians, manager of Dayton's iconic Liberty Theatre, and from Coeur d'Alene Summer Theatre's Artistic Associate Chuck Etheridge. Dan Webster offers his take on the film Portrait of a Lady on Fire, and we'll hear music from Kevin Brown, host of KPBX's Front Porch Bluegrass.

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.
