4,500 Broadcasts! No One Else Has Such a Record!

Undoubtedly, there is no broadcast that has touched the lives of so many for so long as has the weekly program Music & the Spoken Word. The December 13 program will be the 4,500th broadcast. What a run! And the program is still continuing its run of uninterrupted broadcasting, adding listeners and viewers in scores of countries around the world! It’s the longest continuous running weekly broadcast anywhere—and rightly so. Where else can you hear such glorious music coupled with a brief, compelling message of inspiration?

From its beginning on July 15, 1929, the broadcast was heard on radio. Television was added in the 1960s, followed by satellite and cable, and now it is streamed live on the Choir’s website and on its YouTube channel. Tune in this week or set your recorder for a special gift this Christmas season—music with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra at Temple Square.
