Recapitulation of the Genre Hopping of the last three months. Short bits of several genres of audio theater, but not repeating the works. And it’s Pledge Drive, too, so we hope you’ll support the station. Do it now!
It’s the second week of the spring pledge drive and it’s Easter! We will hear the monks of Keur Moussa in Senegal sing Easter songs in French. Singer Jean Ferrat, who died in March, will sing of spring lilacs and love. The great Piaf sings two songs from a cd offered to listeners who pledge on Bonjour Minnesota. Serge Gainsbourg has two chansons from a gift cd, as well as several new artists from two Putumayo cd’s.
I want to thank three very special ladies who helped make this Songs of Praise program as good as it was today. First, I’d like to thank Evangelist Jacqulyne Houston for coming in and manning the phone bank. Secondly, I thank Evanglist Ruth Miller for coming in and Pledge rapping with me. Last but not least, I’d like to thank Dr. Jeanette Robinson in Dayton OH for playing an intricate part in the program by calling in her weekly health tip for the songs of praise audience as well as the kfai community.
