Silhouette  Segments compiles radio spots by John Rydgren, the head of the American Lutheran Church . His radio  show, “Silhouettes”,  was the voice of hippies for God before anyone ever heard the word, “Jesus freak”.

I rescued it from a charity shop.  If you weren’t scared of Scotchmen before this, you should have been.
