Due to scheduling complications, we were unable to air Jim Tevenan's interview with Wyoming artist, Travis Walker. Travis' work was part of the mid-summer show at The Art Spirit Gallery in Coeur d'Alene called "New Western Vibe." Samples of Travis' work referred to in the conversation. More of Travis' images are at The Art Spirit Gallery's website.

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.
