Heaven & Hell

Great topic for my 3rd show: Heaven & Hell. We had lots of fun with this one as we dressed for the part, wearing halos and our most beatific smiles. In the pic I’m in the middle of my angels – Mardi and Quentin who man the phones during my show. We gave away a healing session/massage to one of our listeners. Oh yeah, great music too. Here’s a bit of trivia from the show:


Elvis Presley wore a cross, a Star of David and one of the Hebrew letters, saying that he didn’t want to miss out on Heaven due to a technicality. 

Kitty Wells’ 1952 classic It Wasn’t God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels topped the US country charts but was seen to be too racy for the BBC who banned it because honky tonk angels were “clearly prostitutes”.
