Rock Pulpit was a radio show aired weekly  on WPIX-FM in New York City.

In each program I spun out a sermon by weaving the lyrics

of 5 to 6 songs of the 1970's and 80's

with a commentary based on theology, Scripture, poetry,

and philosophy in the Christian tradition.

Rock Pulpit won the best religious program award in 1976

from the Council of Churches of the City of New York.


Each show lasts 28:00.

Click the arrow and wait 10-20 seconds.
