It was good to read Dennis Heaney’s article discussing a need for good radio and his mention of a new Catholic Channel found on Sirius (satellite radio) (“Light One Candle: Broadcasting today: observations, and a bright spot on the dial,” IR 2/8/07). Unfortunately, Sirius requires a subscription and special equipment to receive. However, Spokane already has just the kind of “special bright spot” radio programing Mr. Hearney encouraged us to support.
The Poor Clare Sisters sponsor “Sacred Heart Radio,” free, quality, inspiring Catholic radio, daily on 970 AM, 5 a.m.-midnight. The programs are varied and appeal to all ages and interests. Among some standouts are Catholic Answers Live, 3-5 p.m., a call-in program featuring Catholic apologists. Journey Home features Marcus Grodi and converts who share their conversion journeys. They serve as constant reminder to us of the gift of our Catholic Faith. Life is Worth Living replays programs of Emmy winner Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen. Archbishop Alex J. Brunett, Seattle Archdioce, and our own (Jesuit) Father Robert Spitzer (president of Gonzaga University) are regulars. Daily Mass and Vatican Radio news broadcasts are pluses. In addition, special papal Masses and events, as well as the American bishops’ conferences, are always covered.
Mr. Heaney urged us to “make an effort to choose quality for yourselves and family.” What better way than for us to make a practice of listening to Catholic radio.
