Terrestrial radio has obviously made a lot of changes over the last four decades, but one constant of the Inland Northwest airwaves (since 1980, at least) is the steady presence of Spokane Public Radio. The station is celebrating its 40th year on the air this week with an open house at their current studios, located inside a former firehouse that’s still complete with fire poles. Whether you’re a donating member or simply a longtime fan of their content, you can show up and enjoy refreshments, hear live music from Brent Edstrom and Brian Flick, and take a chance to put some faces to your favorite local voices.
Wed, Jan. 22 from 3-6 pm • Free • 1229 N. Monroe • spokanepublicradio.org • 328-5729
