This week on Radio Free London for March 23rd

I'll take you to Church again and then through a couple of themes in music!


I 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 home!

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.

The 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).
