From the Studio: Spokane Civic Theatre's "A Christmas Carol"

Verne Windham talks to Jake Schaefer (Director) and Patrick McHenry-Kroetch (Scrooge) of Spokane Civic Theatre about the challenges and triumphs of performing Dickens' "A Christmas Carol" in 2020.  

The radio drama will be aired on KPBX on Sunday, December 20th, at 4 PM, on Thursday December 24th, at 2 PM, and again on December 25th at 12 PM.

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.
