Unshackled! with Radio Drama Production on Bott Radio


Christian talk radio with Radio Drama Production

Unshackled! is radio drama produced in a unique way. As it has been since 1945, writers, actors, and musicians combine to create a dramatic presentation that demonstrates the power of God to reach and change man. Today, Unshackled! is still produced very much as it has always been. Original music is still woven "live" through the story at the time of production. Sound effects occur as the story unfolds before an appreciative live audience. Unshackled! is a ministry of Pacific Garden Mission. Known as the Old Lighthouse, Pacific Garden Mission has since 1877 preached the Gospel of Jesus Christ to lost men and women of the street while at the same time meeting their material and physical needs.

After trying to run away nearly 40 times, he was sent to reform school where he then attempted to stab a teacher. As a young adult, he was in and out of jail for theft and even attempted manslaughter charges. He found the Lord at a Gideon bible study, and where reform programs had failed to transform him, the Bible did not. It changed his heart and set him free.
