(This is an excerpt from the book Messages from Music and the Spoken Word.)

Richard L. Evans' Spoken Word messages are still having an impact today. For example, in 1997, twenty-six years after his death, the Wall Street Journal carried a front-page article and picture about the enduring appeal of Richard L. Evans. His messages have long been featured on radio station KMOX in St. Louis as part of the station’s drive-time programming. In response to a question from management, listeners called and wrote in by the hundreds, telling the station to continue broadcasting Richard L. Evans’s taped inspirational messages — as they had done for several decades.

Among others, Richard L. Evans was instrumental in bringing Music and the Spoken Word to television in 1949. In 1959 the broadcast was voted in a national listeners’ poll as America’s most popular classical and religious program. Evans understood the awesome power of broadcasting to spread goodwill and worked tirelessly to make his messages uplifting and inspiring.
