(aired 8/26/11)


Lord, Divine, Higher Power, Allah, Almighty, Holiness, Bahá, The Light. There are many ways of identifying God. This three-letter term has also shown up in many songs, with a wide range of purposes and contexts. Today every song in the playlist has “God” in the title in some form. Thank you for all the songs suggestions you gave me!
