Name: john hall
I’m the co-host and producer of a daily radio show in Pittsburgh. We’d like to invite you to join us on-air for a live 15 minute segment. Would you be willing to jump in with us?
So, media-savvy savant that I am, I typed back (basically), “I dunno. Who are you guys?”
“We’re a daily radio show in Pittsburgh on a 50,000 watt Christian station that covers parts of Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Ohio,” Mr. Hall wrote right back. “Each day we talk to artists, priests, poets, saints and sinners, about God and the world, and all that’s in it. Pick a topic and come and be part of this.”So I said sure, sounds fun. I think we’re going to talk about the relationship between Christians and atheists.
Watch: the station’ll end up being owned by Anne Rice. It’ll prove the means of her revenge for “Anne Rice: “I Quit Being a Christian!” Yaaaaawn.”
Like I’d be able to blame her if it was.
The station–which I see is actually owned by mega-Christian media company Salem Communications–looks pretty … well, you can look at it for yourself. I think the official WORD-FM station motto is “In God We Trust.”
They’ll call me at 4:35 tomorrow, EST. It’ll broadcast live–but you can listen to archived shows off the show’s web page or via iTunes.
Between then and when they call I’m going to try to contract a terrible hacking cold, so that when I talk I’ll sound like Berry White.
