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.

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:
