The Piano Bench: Archie Chen and Rhona Gouldson-Chen

Archie Chen and Rhona Goudlson-Chen played live on The Piano Bench today, Archie from the Bunte Blätter of Robert Schumann, then Archie and Rhona with duets of dances of Johannes Brahms and Antonin Dvorak, closing with a nicely jazz-tinged arrangement by Milton Kraus of Henry Mancini's "Moon River."

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.
