Additional Info

This is a hilarious send up of religious television programs. A talk show is on the air that features interviews with people about their religious conversions. Guests offer testimonials of their faith. The first person interviewed by stalwart Dale Clabby discourses on devil worship in popular music. The next claims to have talked to God in a belfry. Her testimonial is hardly what Dale expects. Published with Crossing the Bar.

Casting Notes
