Any number of slightly strange Christian groups have leaped on the technology to launch their particular variety of "good news" into the ether. Programming tends to be prerecorded and put on a spin cycle. So in order of weirdness, smallest to greatest, here are three nominations for pointless ghetto-hugging radio.
Lutheran Radio UK. There are two Lutheran bodies in the UK, the Lutheran Church in Great Britain (LCiGB), which represents the mainstream, and the Evangelical Lutheran Church of England (ELCE) which is connected to the fundamentalist Missouri Synod. No prizes for guessing which runs this radio station. Definitely an acquired taste. Available on Tune In.
Radio 4 Living. The "24/7 radio station on the Internet serving the Church of God." John Jewell, a former member of the United Church of God's Council of Elders, is the moving force behind this ministry. Presenters manage to occasionally sound as if they actually know what they're talkin about - but don't bet on it! Available on Live 365.
COG-FFHerbert W Armstrong. Cool name, huh?! Wall to wall Herb from Don Billingsley's miniscule Church of God - Faithful Flock, also on Live 365. The voice of Herbert W. Armstrong from old World Tomorrow broadcasts. It just never stops. Don't try sending for those long out-of-print booklets though. Otherwise - well, fill your boots... but stay away from sharp objects!
