Fonotopia Shorts: Rev. Kelsey

Posted in Fonotopia Short by nissarhusseinkhan on May 3, 2010

We’re going to get you some more full-length Fonotopias as soon as we can, but right now we’re trying to get this thing up on the airwaves. In the meantime, we’re going to bring you one song at a time.

In this first Fonotopia Short, Ian introduces us to the electric Reverend Samuel Kelsey, recorded in Washington, D.C. in 1947. Listen for that magical moment when sermon becomes song.

This is the fourth copy Ian’s had of this record — he keeps getting a copy and giving it to someone, because…someone gave it to him.

We hope you enjoy it — leave your thoughts and come back soon for more Fonotopia shorts, and for news on where the program will be broadcast.

Thanks for listening.

    Thanks for another engaging Fonotopian moment, this is the first time I’ve heard Rev.Samuel Kelsey, he has a good balance of preaching and singing
