This great Lp was Self-Released 1972 and made by the custom press label Forge Records out of Clarksville, Tennessee for this Massachusetts based Gospel / Religious Radio Program, which was celebrating 20 Years of Broadcasting in New England starting in 1952. This Lp contains some of its recorded highlights, many of which may only exist on this very vinyl Lp, which is a great look
inside early Christian Radio Broadcasting.

The album is made up of two long parts (Side A + Side B) and while not much information about the contents is given on the cover/labels, our listening to the record revealed the following (some spelling may be incorrect - we did our best to guess):

- an actual organ & vocal performance by Esther Howser (or Esther Houser) from the Churchill Tabernacle, Buffalo, NY.

- actual partial Sermon from the program Young People's Church of The Air by Percy Crawford.

- an actual partial Sermon by Dr. Donald Grey Barnhouse

- actual partial sermon by Dr. Bob Jones, Sr. (the founder of Bob Jones University).

- Missionary Ruth Stoll ? Ruth Stall ? Ruth Stow speaking at a Christian And Missionary Alliance Conference, talking about her Missionary Work.

- George Beverly Shea with Cliff Barrells in New Mexico, with Mr. Graham (Billy Graham?), singing and discussing the song "Jesus Whispers Peace."

- Jim Vaus speaking live after the Narrator discusses Boston's Ruggles Street Baptist Church and a Middleborogh, Massachusetts Hotel where DeBrine was invited to be part of.

- Mentioned is Dr. John Auchengay (sp?) who was the man behind Boston Youth Time & Park Street Church.

- actual spoken recording snippet of Dr. James T. Rider.

- WKBW or WKVW of Buffalo, New York actual 1951 recording from Rally Echoes program, featuring a small combo singing a nice song, etc.

- Ruggles Street Baptist Church is discussed and from a live Radio Broadcast on WMEX in Boston
is a recording of Harold DeKoo ? on the organ.

- stories about bloopers from live programs including when tapes got mixed up during a Christmas broadcast when a man played the part of a woman when the woman couldn't be found.

- Dr. George Sweeting recorded warming up to sing and then forgetting the words mid-song.

- Discussion about hostility towards Christian Radio.

- actual recording of F. Nelson Blount from a broadcast.

- Actual recording of Blair Richardson speaking live.

- Recorded sounds of people who've been saved, including John DeBrine's father talking about listening to his son's radio program.

- Actual broadcast recording of uncredited song.

- First Presbyterian Church in Quincy, Mass Pastor Steve Brown talks about his church and John DeBrine and the influence DeBrine had on him.
