Having Aired Live
The opportunity to jump on a relatively high powered station came sooner than expected. The first shows were generated with little time available to organize but were exciting, if not odd in the case of #1.
These stateside entertainment shows explore to and fro the grassroots evangelism and verbatim audio bible content we program to border blast overseas to oppressed people in censored countries banning free Christianity. These aired for shortwave hobbyists and amateur radio operators, to say,” Hello” and establish a presence. In fact the first show was even a bit bizarre as a tip of our hat to the strange broadcast loving listeners as well as major ex-pirates we knew were listening, several of whom have turned their superpowers toward helping folks like us.
Attribution and credits appear more as the shows get progressively more organized.
Controversy Warning for Show #4: I am envious of those who can tout an angle or a style that is always uplifting to everyone at all times, yet still somehow uphold God’s Word in today’s realm. Please see my notes on Show #4 which I may, as time allows, insert into the audio (written below the playlist).

Notes on the shows :
Show #1 included an experimental “robot reading Genesis” as part of #1’s purpose of saying hello to the sci fi/ tech / oddity community specifically tuning in to shortwave frequencies commonly, to try to retain a few listeners who usually switch channels when a station switches to scripture (the show on immediately prior was secular). It was not really an artificial intelligence, but a real human reading whose voice we tweaked with vocoder synthesizer effects, choosing notes on a keyboard for story-telling inflection and dramatization. While controversial and likely never to be played again, please keep in mind we have witnessed difficult-to-reach individuals suddenly captivated by this tactic, and then uncharacteristically seeking more “regular” Genesis to see what happens next when there’s no more robot voice left. How can that be bad? But it is something we have not pursued further, nonetheless, in fear of treading on sacred practices in our position. Show 1 also includes a little bio of me in keeping with that episode’s theme.
Show #4 Controversy warning —
While these shows are not 100% live, there is very little time to get them pre-recorded and out. I would like to clarify one point I touch upon here. I am envious of those who can tout an angle or a style that is always uplifting to everyone at all times. My primary calling is to reveal that people who doubt the very existence of God can know once and for all that everything they never dared to hope is true, is true, and surely that is a positive message of hope overall. I do, however, also live in a time where, for example, youths are being brainwashed that up to 30% of them may be “born gay” and that it is perfectly acceptable to thoroughly explore every such whim. Going against this grain is a demonstration of how trying to defend God’s Word is widely perceived as negative or even hateful, when in fact it is out of love that I desire to prevent young people from injuring themselves, being infected with disease, regret decisions they were coerced into making, and/or be caught unfairly by surprise by all of the unnatural drawbacks which are now carefully and even legally guarded secrets regarding homosexuality, but which were common knowledge and scientific fact of yesterday, teeming with evidence.
One of the phenomena that doesn’t help is, however, neither the responsibility of LGBT community nor leftist activists in the school or workplace, but rather our own. It is the phenomenon by which young people are convinced that straight or heterosexual people never, ever have had a gay thought cross their mind. This is the point I make when I call that sentiment “a lie”. I’m not saying you, personally, necessarily remember sitting around having gay thoughts. I’m as confident in my heterosexuality as anyone, but when youths are convinced (as they frequently are) that a homosexual scenario of some kind has never, ever occurred to “certain other” girls or boys, yet they do find themselves having imagined a gay scenario on some level out of raging hormones or active imaginations, it erroneously suggests they they have uniquely had this thought because they “are gay”. In countless cases revealed to me directly over decades, this insidious suspicion that they are born gay causes the subject to curiously think about the scenarios even more, like thought experiments of self discovery, which causes them to unnecessarily dwell upon, react to, and actually develop the thoughts even more. This opens doorways they should have otherwise known to shut right away – to simply put aside, rebuke, and dismiss like any other sinful impulse, instead of dwelling in curiosity. This doesn’t help things, yet it is, in part, our own faults for not teaching them that a gay thought can randomly occur to a straight person out of sexual frustration, and for letting them think that they’re automatically different for having imagined one. Just because you either can’t remember having had one doesn’t mean it’s not a natural, silly, fleeting thought to just put away like any other sinful impulse, and it’s wrong to make a youth think they’re different for having one. This is what I call “a lie” in Show #4. In short – they can’t be prepared to readily dismiss it if they’re taught they’ll never, ever envision it under any circumstances.
