The Latest Volume of "When Swing Was King" Tops the Charts!

It appears that our "When Swing Was King" ministry just won't slow down. Indeed, our latest volume is generating what might be the warmest, most enthusiastic response yet.

The visiting, the stories, the smiles and laughter, the lilting movement as the music plays, the singing along, the applause, the memories shared, the embraces, the expressions of deep appreciation and "please come back soon" -- it's all quite amazing. And every time we present the program, we feel profoundly grateful to God for letting us be a part of such a wholesome, winsome and beneficial service to the residents of nursing homes and other senior facilities.
