This is the week of Easter. Themes of Jesus’ suffering on Calvary, his death for human sins, his resurrection, were a large part of Gospel song, seemingly year-round. We have a brief feature with songs about the passion of Jesus and its meaning for Christians. Also on the program a bit of R&B from the crescent city, more blues from St. Louis. And a lot more in two hours.
