With its first broadcast on July 15, 1929, the Mormon Tabernacle Choir began a tradition unequalled in broadcasting. Over eighty years and 4,200 weekly broadcasts later, "Music & the Spoken Word" is the longest-running uninterrupted network broadcast in the world.

Featuring modern and traditional arrangements of spiritual, patriotic, popular, classical and contemporary music coupled with timely, inspiring prose, "Music & the Spoken Word" appeals to a broad audience. It becomes a listening/viewing destination that loyal listeners and viewers seek out and return to every week.
