From the Studio: Fall Folk Festival Studio Broadcast 2021, Part 2

Music Director Verne Windham and Kevin Brown of Front Porch Bluegrass host a two-hour program with music and interviews from folk performers.  This segment features members of the Spokane Storytelling League who weave their magic with engaging stories that captivate listeners of all ages and encourage audience participation. Another featured performer is Dr. Bob Riggs, a 66-year-old family physician who sings and plays both original tunes and covers on guitar.  A folk singer, he has been writing music and performing for the last 10 years.

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.
