Issues etc. Canceled

Yesterday Issues etc. was uncerimoniously canceled without notice. Rev. Todd Wilken and his producer Jeff Schwarz were let go. This move comes as a complete surprise to a multitude of people. The show was not loosing money and was a beacon of light in an increasingly dark LCMS. I for one am extremely disappointed. The show originated out of St. Louis and I had been listening to it for years. I remember when I started listening Don Matzat was the host. He had such a well weathered voice and when he left and this Todd Wilken character came in with his voice sounding as if he were twelve years young I was not sure the show would last. That was about eight years ago if I remember correctly and boy was I wrong. Todd has done a masterful job hosting this amazing 3 hour a day program. If you would like to join in the throng who is protesting and petitioning to bring the show back here is the information.

Also Todd and Jeff were fired, no pension, no severence, no nothing. If you would like to help them out financially you may do so by sending a donation along with a note to donate to the Wilken/Schwarz fund to:

Saint Paul Lutheran Church
P.O. Box 247
Hamel, IL 62046

I pray the dark forced of Satan at work in the LCMS would be thwarted and this great show be reinstalled on the airwaves.
