Issues, Etc. - The Latest News

Pastor Todd Wilken was interviewed Monday by Pastor Bryan Wolfmueller and Evan Goeglein on their show Table Talk Radio. In the interview, Pastor Wilken gave us a glimpse of the new Issues, Etc., and discussed his article “Playing the Pharisee Card” in the new Issues journal.

The new Issues, Etc. will debut on June 30th on St. Louis radio station KSIV, 1320 AM. The program runs on the radio from 4:00 to 5:00 p.m. on weekdays, as well as live internet streaming on Pirate Christian Radio from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. Podcasting and downloading will also be available.

Pastor Wilken explained the “mystery” behind the Pirate Christian Radio moniker:

There’s been some confusion over the whole pirate aspect of that. I think people have been expecting Jeff and I to show up carrying scabbards with eye patches and things like that. There’s really nothing more to it than what people who are familiar with radio recognize immediately that pirate radio is often considered to be radio that operates somewhere outside the boundaries, outside the lines, and Pirate Christian Radio is that web service that’s going to let us bring our signal back to the web in the form of live streaming and on demand and podcasting.

On a related note, someone asked me about a week ago how the fund raising was going for the new show. In an email response, Pastor Wilken had this to say:

The fundraising is going very well, better than expected. We have had some big donors give us a good beginning. But to sustain the new show in the long run will require us to get the 300 and the Reformation club back up and running.

Please make a donation on the Pirate Christian Radio website.

For those of you in the St. Louis area, get those presets programmed on you radios, and the rest of you be ready to “tune in” on Pirate Christian Radio.

I think that's "Table Talk Radio" rather than "Table Top" - a reference to a volume of Luther's Works - "Table Talk."

Ooops. Indeed it is. "Walk the walk and top the talk." I'm sure Luther would have laughed.
