Radio that entertains, encourages and edifies …

Broken Road Radio is an old, familiar flavor of radio, much closer to what you may remember listening to on the radio if you tuned in during the 60's, except we're grownups now. Here you'll enjoy the music of the 50's, 60's and 70's, both sacred and popular. We play newer music, too, but we're downright picky about it. We throw in an occasional mental meander now and then just to see if you're paying attention, and we're not shy about offering a little encouragement and inspiration, either. We're not here to teach. We're here to listen and learn right along with you. We're about depth, not dogma. This is radio for grownups. We're glad you found us!

A wise man named Paul once wrote: "You were all called to travel on the same road and in the same direction, so stay together, both outwardly and inwardly. You have one Master, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who rules over all, works through all, and is present in all. Everything you are and think and do is permeated with Oneness." It is a Broken Road we traverse together. If you look, you can just make out the glow on the horizon ahead. Onward ...

Good question. We didn't choose it, but it may suggest that we are regular cut ups. Use it with care.

Good morning, Broken Road Radio.
Jim Park
Good morning to Guest_1711 and all of you listening this morning. Welcome to Broken Road Radio and to the Morning Show! Fair Friday has arrived and we're prepared with a major dose of the best music of the past six decades and then some. David has the day off, so it's you, me and the music. Thanks for joining us as we amble on toward that Light over that-a-way ... smile
Guest_1758
Thank you for the music to accompany my preparations for the day.
Guest_1758
...and thank you for this Chris Rice tune

Tunes keep coming, and they're pretty good by our East Dakotan standards!
Jim Park
Yup. You can't get music like this in the big city.

bye sun rain
Guest_1786
Good morning, y'all! And all y'all, too. Welcome to Broken Road Radio. Just want to remind you that the music continues all weekend here along the path we all travel whether we know it or not. Whether we admit it or not. There are just some things beyond our control and that require a degree of submission. That's a difficult maneuver for many of us. Submission. We refer you to our "Quoteworthy" from Wendell Berry. Thanks for finding us and for tuning in! Oh ...and a reminder that a portion of our Sunday morning music is dedicated to contemplation of the deeper things, to prayer and praise.

's'up??question
Jim Park
It's sunny and the 60's here today. Time for a jaunt somewhere's to the immediate south of East Dakota and a little shopping, dining out and exploring life outside the studio. Wha's up wit you?
Guest_1785
Cloudy, 52, and headed for a high of 55. Odds and ends to do, and a memorial gathering for the son-in-law's grandmother who passed away. As for studio life, I need to put mine in high gear. smile

Coming up on Broken Road Radio …

While we understand that most folks listen for the music, you'll want know that our 8:00 (Central) hour weekday mornings often contains conversations with some articulate folks with special knowledge to share with you. Not sermons. Not preachy stuff. Not churchy, either. Typically, these last for 30 minutes or so, then it's back to music. If you don't mind going a bit deeper into the things that matter, listen for these special people ...

• Dr. Don Clark, a biochemist and board Vice Chairman with Creation Moments, joins us each Tuesday morning during our 8:00 hour Central. You'll enjoy a true scientist's perspective on faith and you can join the discussion in the chat window above. Creation vs. evolution? Science vs. faith? Will the war ever end? Listen in as we lob a few shells over the ramparts.

• Doug Greenwold, Senior Teaching Fellow at Preserving Bible Times visits just after 8:00 Central each Wednesday morning to guide us through the historical and cultural context of Scripture. We'll miss Doug this week as he is traveling to Michigan to prepare for the upcoming IBC conference to be held there.

• Gisle Sorli, our resident Norwegian and Family Wealth Counselor, visits Thursday mornings just after 8:00 when we discover together just how broad a meaning has the term "stewardship".

• "Groundwork" with Pastor Dave Bast is heard Thursday evenings at 8:00 (Central) on Broken Road Radio ...earnest but casual conversations examining the application of Scripture to everyday life in answer to serious questions posed by listeners. Not at all "preachy". Good stuff!

Tune in for our live Morning Show from 7 - 10am Central each weekday ...but you can listen all day, every day for music you'll remember, music that inspires, makes you smile and even teaches. These are melodies that please, lyrics you can understand and artists that won't yell at you. We invite you to visit our Podcast page to hear and download past conversations with Doug Greenwold, Dr. Don Clark, Gisle Sorli and many others ...and thanks for finding Broken Road Radio!
