JOHN A. FIGLIOZZI- Many would probably be surprised to learn that the
longest running drama on radio is the program entitled  "Unshackled",
produced by the Pacific Garden Mission of Chicago and broadcast by,
among others, HCJB and WWCR. There is an interesting article about the
program in the Arts and Leisure section of the Sunday New York Times. To
read the article online, click on

may be required to register at the Times web site in order to read this
and other articles, but there is no charge to do so.  John Figliozzi

OA campo music. Live man announcer finally at 0151 with rapid talk.
Thought heard mentions of San Francisco Solano and probably mention of
