SUNDAY, SUNDAY, SUNDAY

No, not at US 30 Drag Strip (only old WLS listeners will understand that reference, and you'd have to be at least 40 years old). I'm talking about the great radio programs on the Moody Broadcasting Network on Sunday nights. I like to go to bed early on Sunday nights just to listen in the dark to this programming. It is hard to explain what it is if you haven't heard it.

I begin my listening with the radio drama "Unshackled", sponsored by Pacific Garden Mission in Chicago. I should say, this is bad radio drama, but bad enough to be good. If that makes sense. The stories are supposedly true. The website describes dramatic re-enactments of supposed events as "stirring". That is not the word I would use. Amusing is a word that does come to mind, however. Bad accents, goofy and dramatic organ music, and a mixture of over- and under-acting predominate. But I am somehow hooked on this program. My imagination just runs wild listening to it. I am always most disappointed if I miss it. Radio rocks.

Following this program is the "award-winning" "Songs In The Night". The theme song to this program is so relaxing it could put Taz to sleep. And if you manage to make it past the theme music, there is a lot of good teaching by Dr. Erwin Lutzer of Moody Church. It is almost a cinch I'll be asleep before the end of this program.

Not a bad way to end a weekend- amused, relaxed, and ready to rest to take on a new week.
