Tonight Their Finest Hour hits Vigilant Liberty Radio with a pre-recorded show for this Thanksgiving holiday weekend! The show will post at 10pm Eastern/7pm Pacific on VLR’s Spreaker page, and you can enjoy at your leisure!
The “greatest hits” I’ll be playing are:
I also want to draw everyone’s attention to a charity fundraiser VLR’s Amanda McCallister (@RightInPlanning) is conducting this holiday season. Amanda would like to host an orphan from overseas during Christmas. During the visit, they’ll have the chance to meet potential adoptive families here, and it could change a very young life for the unquestioning better. Please donate if you can!!
Here’s the show!
I’ll be back with a brand new show next Saturday (12/5) – thanks everyone for your listenership and continued support, I hope everyone had a great holiday, and safe travels if you’re on the road!
