CLA Radio 12/16/16: God


What:  Songs about God.

Most of them have God in the title, until the very end of the show when there are a few that do not. And of course there are a few audio clips on The Topic.

I tried to be fair, and balance the show between pro-, con-, and agnostic, but there just aren’t many atheist or agnostic songs that are very good. Most are just snotty, and puerile, and not worth the time. (Sorry Frank.) Hopefully I struck a pleasing balance–that will please nobody.

When: Friday, December 16, 2016, 6:00 PM Pacific/9:00 PM Eastern.

Where: Duane FM in the Hughniverse.

Spotify playlist: Here, except for additional audio marked with an asterisk (*).

  1. This is a GREAT show, Sir CLA. If it’s the ruin of me, I’m going to get you and WNY on a show to discuss religion.
