In Loving Memory:
Ira Tucker, Sr. of the Dixie Hummingbirds.
Legendary quartet vocalist Mr. Tucker passed away last month at the age of 83. We’ll celebrate his life and music by featuring classic tracks by the Dixie Hummingbirds and snippets of a 2006 interview by Marc Lindy of Vancouver’s “Gospel Train” radio show (special thanks to Marc Lindy for use of his interview).
Hallelujah! At last… Sweden’s Gospel Friend label has satisfied a long overdue need for a commercially available reissue CD of vintage Wings over Jordan tracks. We’ll listen to a few Sunday morning, and relive the days when Sunday morning meant Wings over Jordan on the radio.

Preacher Feature: The late Dr. Wilbur A. Daniels, pastor – Antioch Baptist Church, Chicago, who at the 1968 National Baptist Convention in Texas announced his nomination: “Jesus…For President.”
From the Vault:
Cousins & DeMoss…from 1898! Though Cousins & DeMoss is singing a spiritual, the duo had the gospel beat down pat in the 19th Century!
