"When Swing Was King" Is Sprinking Stardust -- All Month Long

It looks like quite a week coming up. For besides getting the April LifeSharer letter out, blogging, a serious (and overdue) writing project,  having a couple of meetings with church folks, hosting a table at the AAA Center for Pregnancy Counseling banquet, and the regular preparation for Sunday's sermon, today begins a new month's worth of "When Swing Was King" presentations.

By the way, the schedule for those 13 presentations (five of them this week alone) can be found on the Vital Signs Ministries web page.  Please feel free to tag along for any of them. We can guarantee you'll have a good time and, even more important, that you will be warmly welcomed by the residents of these nursing homes and other senior living facilities.

And, for those of you who want a "When Swing Was King" preview, here's the song list for the latest volume:

1) Glenn Miller Orchestra: "Pennsylvania 6-5000"
2) Lionel Hampton Orchestra: "Flying Home"
3) Harry James Orchestra (Kitty Kallen, vocals):
