The Guitar Hour on KPBX

The Guitar Hour with Leon Atkinson on KPBX Spokane Public Radio

Here's a picture of Vern and Leon in the studio.  As a former radio On-Air Personality, I was excited as usual, to visit the studio and get some pictures.  There's something magical about being in a radio station.  I'm always amazed at how much more relaxed public radio is from the hustle and bustle of commercial stations. 

 KPBX The Guitar Hour

 Here's a picture from earlier in the year from last years Classical Guitar Series featuring Grammy Award and Nominee Artists Alex DeGrassi and Andrew York.  I volunteered with everything from getting coffee, folding programs, picking up music stands to driving musicians to the airport! Leon wanted me to mention that he worked very hard to keep ticket prices as low as possible and that he didn't make a dime.  Here we are after the show at Rain having a fun diner:

Some day I hope I will be able to play at some of these events. I'm still learning guitar, but I'm steadily making progress, and even bought a jazzmaster pickup for rock recently after reading an article from Artem Ali. Rock is my favorite genre, so I'm mainly playing some of the classics on my guitar. If you ever get into music, definitely get this thing once you feel confident.
