  • Randy Stonehill — Icon of The Christian Rock Movement
    Imagine the onstage magnetism of Mick Jagger, the lyrical brilliance of Bob Dylan and the personal fragility of Brian Wilson… that was Larry Norman – The Godfather Of Christian Rock. His good friend, Randy Stonehill stars in a new expose about Larry’s complicated life called FALLEN ANGEL: THE OUTLAW LARRY NORMAN. This new documentary by Emmy nominated Canadian filmmaker David Di Sabatino, recounts the rise of the rock 'n' roll 'Billy Graham' of the 1970s through to the height of success as the visionary behind Solid Rock Records before a personal meltdown and subsequent fall from grace exiled him to the margins of the Christian subculture he helped create. Too religious for the rock 'n' rollers but too rock 'n' roll for the religious crowd, Larry Norman was the perpetual outsider who ultimately imploded under the weight of trying to fuse his position as the musical voice of the Jesus movement with his desire for '70s rock superstar status. Is he the misunderstood musical prophet of the Christian world? Is he an outlaw conning the faithful? Larry Norman is a walking contradiction, partly truth and partly fiction. Fallen Angel is a rock 'n' roll epic of biblical proportions. (Toronto screening featuring LIVE music with Randy Stonehill - Q&A with the director, David DiSabatino, Wednesday, February 23rd from 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM at The Revue Cinema.)

  • Doral Chenoweth — The man who's video of a homeless man with the golden radio voice, went viral!
    A few weeks ago, a YouTube video of a homeless man with a golden radio voice went viral. Ted Williams was panhandling on the streets of Ohio, but he became an overnight celebrity after Columbus Dispatch reporter, Doral Chenoweth, posted a video of him online. Doral joins us today to bring us up to speed on how instant fame and money has impacted Ted Williams, on how faith plays a role in his own life, and what it’s really like loving those the rest of us ignore.

  • Dawn Bennett — Divorce Lawyer
    Nothing says “Happy Valentine’s Day” like a divorce lawyer! It can be overwhelming when your marriage breaks down, but the fact is that even Christians end up divorcing. And unfortunately many people feel a sense of rejection from their church rather than support and healing. When the painful decision to divorce has been made, it's important to have someone that really knows the law but also understands your personal & spiritual needs. Dawn Bennett is a Family Lawyer who appreciates that divorce is a reality, and there are many Christians in need of legal council.

  • Love Songs — With Jacob & Jodi
    Our Valentine’s Day Special wouldn’t be complete without two of Canada’s sweetest recording artists joining forces and melting the ice around our cynical and love-starved hearts. (Quick! Somebody call Hallmark!) Our good friend Jacob Moon continues the tradition of performing a few of his favourite love songs on this special edition of TDMS. However, just to set the right mood, he’ll be joined by another previous guest, the sacchariferous, Jodi King!

Talkback, etc.

    This week on The Counsel of Many: A guy has just found out that his girlfriend, who he was about to propose to, gave her virginity away to another guy while they were broken up and wants to know if he still should marry her or not.

    "My girlfriend and I broke up about a year ago after dating for a couple of years. We just got back together again, which I really consider to be an answer to prayer. We’ve been talking seriously about getting married next year and both of us really feel like this is God’s will. That is until I found out that while we were broken up, she had sex with the guy she was dating for a few months. This new bit of information has totally wrecked me! I am a virgin and very proud of it. I’ve always wanted to marry a virgin. My girlfriend USED to be a virgin. As far as I knew, she still was a virgin. Then out of nowhere she lays this on me. I kinda freaked out a bit, and haven’t talked to her since. She knew how important this was to me. Anyway, now I’m confused and not sure if I want to be married to this girl who gave it away to someone else. I have friends who have told me to just let it go, forgive her and proceed with the original plan of marrying who I felt was the girl of my dreams. But I just can’t get past the fact that she has slept with someone else. I just can’t get past the fact that I was saving myself for another – someone who was also saving themselves for me. God told me years ago that I would marry a virgin. Now what? "

  • TDMS Banter
    The beginning and the end of the show is like any good sandwich. The stuff in the middle is what it's all about - The rest is just crust! Sometimes it's worth listening to. Sometimes - not so much.
