Mollie Hemingway gives more details about the return of “Issues, etc.”:
Jeff [Schwarz] and Todd [Wilken] have signed a contract with KSIV-AM 1320 in St. Louis. All of their studio equipment is in and connected. So the team will be furiously testing, testing, testing until they open the mic on June 30.
On weekdays, Monday-Friday, starting June 30, the program will be webcast around the world for two hours, 3:00-5:00 (Central), on the Internet at the Pirate Christian Radio website:
The second hour, 4:00-5:00, will be broadcast in the St. Louis area on AM 1320.
Todd gave an interview about the show and you can listen to it here: www.tabletalkradio.org/audio/scraps-wilken.mp3
Isn’t it telling that a program featuring Lutheran theology was booted off of the Lutheran radio station but picked up by an evangelical radio station? As I keep saying from my own experience, evangelicals are often more open to the insights of Lutheran theology than some Lutherans are.
Anyway, put June 30 on your calendar and make the time-slot part of your routine. All of us who supported “Issues, Etc.” during this controversy will need to rally around the show to make the new launch successful, both in our listening and in our financial contributions. The rest of you can now see what the fuss was all about.
