Music and the Spoken Word


On the air for over eighty-seven years and 4,526 weekly broadcasts, Music & the Spoken Word is the longest-running uninterrupted network broadcast in the world. Its audience continues to grow as more people tune to its half hour of uplifting music and inspiring prose.

"There are things that Music &the Spoken Word is, and there are things that it is not. For instance, it is not a worship service. The program has always been designed to be a non-denominational program, and to be enjoyed by people of many walks of faith. Also, it is not a concert. It is, in fact, as the title implies, a program of inspirational music and spoken word." -- Mack Wilberg, Choir Director --

Featuring modern and traditional arrangements of spiritual, patriotic, popular, classical and contemporary music coupled with timely, inspiring prose, Music & the Spoken Word becomes an uplifting, rejuvenating destination that listeners and viewers return to every week.
