"Wildlife Display" by Joyce Wilkens

Joyce Wilkens lives on the Palouse in Spokane, Washington. Her passion for nature, beauty in expression, faith and connecting with people through their stories prompted her work as author/poet/artist/photographer.

Joyce worked as an art/history docent and actor for the Spokane Museum of Arts and Culture. She is a member of the River Ridge Association of Fine Arts and Poetry Scribes of Spokane.

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.
