From the Studio: Spokane Valley Summer Theatre Presents "Little House on the Prairie"

Spokane Valley Summer Theatre visits the studio to talk about their production of "Little House on the Prairie." Verne talks to Director Yvonne Johnson, and actors Jennifer Tindall (Laura), Steve Mortier (Pa), Patti Mortier (Ma), and Sophia Williams (Nellie) perform, with Music Director Annie Flood on piano.

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.
