The CatholicTV® Network to air Special Father’s Day Programming
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
WATERTOWN, MA (June 12, 2012) –The CatholicTV® Network to air Special Father’s Day Programming
In celebration of Father’s Day CatholicTV will air the Music and the Spoken Word, featuring the world-renowned Mormon Tabernacle Choir. The broadcast will honor fathers and the gift of their lives on Sunday, June 17, 2012 at 1PM ET.
The 360 members of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir represent men and women from many different backgrounds and professions and range in age from 25 to 60. They reflect a medley of unique lives and experiences and are brought together by their love for singing and their faith.
Their incomparable voices are the common chord that unites to form the choral group known all over the world as the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. The Choir has appeared at 13 of the world's fairs and expositions, performed at the inaugurations of five U.S. presidents, and sung for numerous worldwide telecasts and special events.
Five of the Choir's recordings have achieved "gold record" and two have achieved "platinum record" status. The most popular was the Grammy-Award-winning 1959 release of "The Battle Hymn of the Republic" with the Philadelphia Orchestra.
Today Music and the Spoken Word has become the world's longest-running continuous network broadcast and is carried on more than 2,000 radio and television stations and cable systems. It has been broadcast from locations across the country and around the world. Since its first broadcast, the program was an immediate success.
In 1954, to commemorate the 25th year of weekly Music and the Spoken Word broadcasts, Life magazine commented on the program's legacy with these words: "Those who know this program...need no arguments for listening to it. Millions have heard them, and more millions, we hope, will hear them in years to come. It is a national institution to be proud of."
Every week since 1929, young ears have pressed against radios, aging hands have found a familiar station, and anxious eyes have looked for a trusted friend, the choir's broadcast of Music and the Spoken Word. And while the times and technologies have changed, the essence of this broadcast has remained the same. In a world that is so often noisy and full of distraction, Music and the Spoken Word remains a welcome reprieve.
