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.” (The Message, Ephesians 4:4-6)

It is a Broken Road we traverse together. If you look, you can just make out the glow on the horizon ahead. Onward …

"Dobree dyehn, y'all!" (as President Putin might greet his countrymen in the south of Russia as he travels to his dacha). We find ourselves at another Thankful Thursday, still wondering where the music went. Well, it is safe and sound here at Broken Road Radio awaiting the day when it reemerges in all it's audio awesomeness. We'll be back!

Thanks for your understanding as we regroup, find new avenues of revenue, and plan our return to the air. We are so glad you remember us (heart ) ...not that it's been all THAT long. Still, the silence is deafening, no?
Good afternoon, Mr. Non-Announcer guy. At least here -- for now-- you're the strong silent type??laugh-big
Jim Park
In, out and around today. Lots of video work and some graphic design. Alas, no live radio on the agenda.
Jim Park
It is fairly Friday and we look forward to the day. In fact, we celebrate the time around here. We're Broken Road Radio and we're glad for those of you who are still checking in on us while we cogitate on ways to return to the air. It's tough seeing all this music just sitting here.

We thank you for your patience. Don't go too far away. We'll be back soon! ok
Jim Park
As we while away the weekend we're seriously considering the time at which we will return to the air. It may be a bit sooner than we were anticipating, though the music may well begin again before our live Morning Show does. We'll see how October unfolds. Do stay tuned ...we are far from done here.

Still considering adding to our library ...anything we're missing from the 50's, 60's or 70's is fair game. Any suggestions? ... smile
cafe cheers...
Jim Park
Cheers to you, too! And our wishes for a merry Monday. Would that it would also be mellifluous! But we're working on that. We expect a return to the air within a few weeks. We're (still) ... Broken Road Radio and there will be music again. There's just too much wonderful sound bottled up in our library clamoring to get out. Thanks for remembering us and for checking in. Your comments are encouraging during a challenging time for us. clouds
East Dakota is more blessed than the rest of this continent. (Hope that opening statement raises a little neck hair). As usual (and despite the claims of 'global climate change' people), we've enjoyed a temperate and suitably wet summer. Admittedly, East Dakota goes excessively dry or hot and wet or dry from year to year. This year it didn't. Seems the ozone hole is holding its own (despite claims dating back to the last century), and tornadoes and other weather trauma are about the same as they were about 50 years ago. Who knows, maybe all that will change. But not so far.Blessings...

Gorgeous summer thus far, all things considered. Could use a bit more thunder and lightening in just the right amount. Ample sunshine has us dreaming of a perfect tomato or two. Now all we need is are those summer songs to go with it all. Hello, GNH!
Jim Park
Yup. You got it. Those are some of the songs of summer that we're not hearing on Broken Road Radio so far. I suspect we'll sneak a few of them in as we welcome autumn, however. Autumn has it's own special music, too. It will all be back within a few weeks. Thanks for thinking of us today!
Jim Park
...and let us not omit "Theme from a Summer Place", or asummersonggreenleavesofsummeronesummernightsummerrainsouthernsummersummerwinesummerof78thesummerknows ...either. smile
Jim Park
Not too far off the mark. We have not set an exact date yet. Music may start before the live Morning Show returns as we test out a few changes in the streaming arrangements.
Ah, Broken Road--- Where is the Rest Stop music when I am world-weary?
Jim Park
We particularly miss the evening sounds here, too. It's a feature of our programming day that evades most of our listeners. We think our evening music presentation is much more restorative than anything on the tube. Or screen (these days).

Welcome to Broken Road Radio, all. Thanks for sticking with us while we reconstitute the business end of the ministry. Your visits here, however occasional, are much appreciated. We are on the way back ...
bye good morning, BRR. The cafe is brewing

Birch leaf this morning? Minced kale, perhaps? smile

Jim Park
Greetings ...from here in East Dakota! I presume you are checking in to see if we're still alive, and we are. Still putting things together in a different way to get back on the air. All the best to you, Guest_4392!
Oops... East Dakota? Help out this poor Oregon boy understand. Only familiar with N.and S.
Jim Park
East Dakota lies immediately (as you might expect) ...east of North Dakota. Some time ago, Broken Road Radio decided to carve out a small bit of real estate and declare it a free and independent state, even though we are surrounded by Minnesota. The motivation? ...we like the politics and tax structure of North Dakota much better. We, therefore, exist in a permanent state of rebellion, apparently. We're nice folks, though ... bye
Jim Park
...oh, and we have an emperor. His name is Dave. Dave and I should be back on the air live come October or early November as we are currently engaged in arranging new revenue streams for the station. We have been on the air for over 6 years but are now experiencing a brief hiatus. We really miss the music.
Okay, maybe we are familiar with a similar "State", Jefferson, near our N
Oops again! ... northern CA border our southern OR
('re not the only ones who miss the music...)

Broken Road Radio is, temporarily, off the air, but when we return …

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.

• 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!

A special note for you …

Broken Road Radio is, for the time being, off the air. We thank you for dropping by and encourage you to check back now and again. Hopefully, in the near future, you will come here, click on this window, and hear your music again.

Listen, participate, enjoy …
