Welcome to Spirit and Song! Every other week we seek to offer music and poetry to sustain the soul, stories of connection with one another, conversations about spiritual quests, and also a half-hour or so reading children’s books to give children’s parents, grandparents, and other caretakers a Sunday afternoon breather.
I hope you will join me as listeners and that you will also consider sharing your experiences, sharing your searching, sharing your connection with others, in person or in writing, as you wish, so that these may be shared on the air.
I would also love to hear of your ideas about music, poems, and children’s stories to include as part of Spirit and Song. Please contact me at athayer[at]pshift.com or (802) 454-1131. Or, if you have a story or observation to share, call the station during the broadcast at 454-7762.

Prison Radio’s mission is to challenge unjust police and prosecutorial practices which result in mass incarceration, racism, and gender discrimination by airing the voices of men and women victimized by an unjust criminal justice system. We believe that when a person’s humanity is recognized, the public is able to make more informed choices on the direction of public policy. We do this by bringing their voices into the public dialogue on crime and punishment.
Our radio broadcasts help spur the public to examine core issues that create crime and heighten disenfranchisement. Our educational materials serve as a catalyst for public activism, strengthening movements for social change. Prison Radio’s productions illustrate the perspectives and the intrinsic human worth of the more than 7.1 million people under correctional control in the U.S, and those not served by the justicesystem.
