This week on Radio Free London for April 6th

A Palm Sunday service and music for these times.


This was the fourth week I've recorded the Church service at St. James Westminster Anglican Church and I'll start the show this way, as I've done with the others.

Palm Sunday (or Passion Sunday as it's sometimes called) is one of the high points of the year for the Christian faith. There is pageantry, choirs, the procession around the signs of the cross and the reading of the Passion of Christ.

Not this year, unfortunately. So we're doing the next best thing, bringing the Church to the people as best we can. The Pastor at St. James has told me that whenever the congregation is allowed to come back, the first public service will be a full production of the Easter Service in all its glory to celebrate.

Again, whether you're religious or not, these services are worth a listen, not just for the awesome spine tingling music but for the readings and reflections as well. You can't get closer to community than a Church service will bring you and community is the most important thing in our lives right now.

For the remainder of the show, I'll play music for these times. I spent the week pouring over my music collection to pick out songs that speak to the times we live in.

For the third week, I'm producing the show at home and sending it in for our Program Director, Zahra, to slot in for airplay. A deep bow to her and the rest of 94.9 CHRW Radio Western's crew that are keeping the station going through this.
