Expansion[edit]

I am in the process of expanding this article. I have added sections on the tabernacle, the choir and the announcers. It is still under construction, but I will be working on it more. Sylverdin 19:26, 3 November 2006 (UTC)

Podcasts[edit]

I'm not sure that this is a relevant part of information for the introduction:


An email reply to an inquiry for why the program is not currently provided in podcast form was provided by the Account Coordinator for Bonneville Communications:

Because of the music licensing regulations and the new pod casting regulations and costs, it would cost the Choir around 50-60 cents for each Music and the Spoken Word MP3 download. The show and the Choir are non-profit efforts. They have no resources to cover MP3 download costs, neither can they charge the consumers for downloading.

Hopefully in the near future we will be able to provide pod casting.

If it is to be included in the article, it probably should be changed into a reference and put as a footnote. Honestly, it just doesn't fit with the continuity of the article. It is way too specific and is too long compared to the rest of the article. Sylverdin 19:59, 16 February 2007 (UTC)

GA nom[edit]

The article has failed due to the lack of references and the article needs expansion please, also combing sections would help, cheers. Lakers 04:42, 3 April 2007 (UTC)

Weekly Broadcast[edit]

I've watched your program every Sunday Morning, here in Western New York, at 6:30 a.m......for years !!! It started my Sunday....even though I attend my church, faithfully, every Sunday.....(I enjoyed the choir, having been in my church choir most of the past 55 years.... I also was able to be in attendance for your Christmas Concert, in SLC, in 2004, and was able to enjoy watching a "rehearsal" in July, 2008....) The Sunday a.m. "Music and the Spoken Word" was carried on the "Hallmark" Channel.....Since Jan 1, 2010, it is no longer on....anywhere, any time....I miss it....I deeply miss it !!! Will it be on again ??? Is it carried on any local radio stations ???? Barbara J Bush —Preceding unsigned comment added by 72.231.206.33 (talk) 21:00, 24 January 2010 (UTC)
