recorded another service at St. James Westminster
Anglican Church this weekend. I wasn't planning on playing it on my
show but then two things happened.
While I was editing the recording of the
service, I was marveling at the effort those folks put into to bringing
a li'le bit of normalcy into folk's lives by bringing the church
service to them this way.
Then the second thing happened...
Radio Western is in the midst of a phased
shutdown. The building the radio station is in will be closing from
early evening til early morning, right when my show is!
So, No show? No way!
I jerry rigged a recording setup at home
and proceeded to make my show to upload as a podcast before my show
aired. Then I got in touch with the station's Program Director who told
me I could email my podcast files to her and she'd send them off to the
radio station to play at midnight as usual... and she did all that from
In the end, my show aired on time and I'm
listening to it right now while writing this late post.
Okay, I get it. Life isn't normal right now.
I should honour the efforts of the folks at
St. James Westminster by continuing to play their services on my show.
They are an important window into these times that should be heard
whether you're religious or not.
And, like St. James Westminster, I'll do my
part to keep bringing a li'le bit of normalcy to your lives.
two musical themes comprising the lion's share of the show are,
appropriately, heaven, as it is represented in the many genres of music
and women's voices in music (part 2).
