Gus gets a little macabre today when he asks what song you’d like played at your funeral. The discussion was prompted by a conversation he and his wife had while taking a walk. We had lots of different tunes as chosen by our listeners including Church hymns like On Eagle’s Wings and Panis Angelicus to pop songs like 10,000 Miles by Mary Chapin-Carpenter and even an old standard in Goodbye by Benny Goodman.
Also, we’re joined by Fr. Dwight Longenecker and Gus poses the the question – is Pope Francis’ honeymoon over? That is, when it comes to the secular media. Fr. Longenecker wrote about it recently on his blog and you can read it here.
And, today is Gus Lloyd’s birthday and instead of receiving….he’s giving gifts away. He asks listeners to call in and see what celebrity with whom they share their birthday. The ones who get on the air win a free copy of one of his books!
