Toews on the Waves Rides Again

First there was Apollo 9. Then, there was Apollo 10. Then, after that,
Apollo 11. But what momentous event took place after that? Why, Apollo 12,
of course.

Moving on just a little in our history lesson, skipping over forty years
when nothing in particular happened, we arrive at August 30, 2009, 7:00 PM
Eastern. Okay, our history lesson has inexplicably turned into an
examination of the future, but who cares about these details? I sure
don't. Anyway, history will record that an episode of Toews on the Waves
made its mark on an expectant Internet radio-listening public. Had its
host, Bruce Toews, described the show in advance, he would have said
something like this:

Some of these remakes are really quite good. Others, well, you'll have to
decide which you prefer. Our other features are all here too: Songs I

unlike Stephen King's book "The Stand", though the story itself is very

So will history relate that you joined Bruce for the program? I think it
should. It makes for a more entertaining story, don't you think?

Toews on the Waves can be heard Sunday evenings from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM Eastern, or 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM Central, 5-7 PM Mountain, or 4-6 PM Pacific. To listen, direct your browser to Click on The Legend, and then choose your favorite media player.
