Tales for Telling series returns to radio heyday

Story and song to share bill March 25 at Parksville's McMillan Arts Centre

Hear the stories about how some of the most famous gospel songs came to be written and performed, then hear the songs when McMillan Arts Centre hosts the next installation of the Tales for the Telling series March 25.

Turn Your Radio On! is a storytelling and music show about the world’s most famous gospel music. Dipping into the emotional and cultural stream of the gospel tradition, Marva Blackmore tells the stories behind the music that inspired the Christian faithful during the golden age of radio.

With baritone Brian Lecky, Marva brings these tales to life through compelling stories, music and song.

It’s No Secret these stories will have you Crying in the Chapel and calling down that Amazing Grace!

Last year the McMillan Arts Centre presented this show to a sold-out audience.

Tickets are $12.00 or $10.00 for Arts Centre members.  Remaining tickets will be available at the door.

For more information, call Marva Blackmore
