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”. His psychedelic Christian Dj patter, in the style of Ken Nordine, is backed by fuzzy guitars and Summer Of Love grooves.  A heady mix of peace, love, sex & Jesus.  This and 100 other rare and unusual records from the LP Cover Lover archives are being put up for auction on eBay beginning on Monday, April 13th!
