Music & Memories


For over twenty five years, our weekly radio program, "Music & Memories" has been broadcast every Sunday morning at 8 a.m. over KASM radio, 1150 AM in Albany. Each week we recognize those who died in the coming week of the previous year and include inspirational music. We also invite listeners to call or write to have their loved one remembered on the program.


Our weekly radio program, "Music & Memories", is broadcast every Sunday morning at 8 a.m. over KASM radio, 1150AM. Each week we recognize those who died in the coming week of the previous year, along with inspirational music.

Invitations to listen are sent out to each family we have served about a week before the program airs. But now we are able to post the script for this coming Sunday right here.

We invite you to have your loved one remembered on the program. Just fill out this form. Remember to send us the name and date of death about ten days ahead of time so that we can get them on the program the week before the anniversary date.

Music & Memories for Sunday October 24, 2021

Published: October 24, 2021

Music & Memories Sunday October 24, 2021

Good morning and welcome to Music & Memories.

This is Linda Sue, and I am the grief specialist at Patton-Schad Funeral Home. It is my pleasure to bring you this week’s program on KASM. This program is our way of reaching out to help families deal with those difficult days surrounding the death anniversary of a loved one.

Judy Shepard talks about her grief after losing her son Matthew; “The past year has been a learning experience for our entire family. One thing brought painfully to all our minds and hearts is that we take far too much for granted. We think that there will always be a tomorrow to talk, hug, discuss, settle questions, declare our love, share our ideas, and be at peace. We have found that this is not the case. We should never wait until later to share our feelings. Life is too short. At the same time, we realize the waste of energy in regrets. One can get lost in regret and forget about the wonderful, happy memories that are part of everyone’s life. Grief is a very individual and personal experience. Everyone goes through loss in his or her own way.”

This program is dedicated to the memory of:

Music & Memories for Sunday, October 17, 2021

Good morning and welcome to Music & Memories.

This is Linda Sue and I am the grief specialist at Patton-Schad Funeral Home. It is my pleasure to bring you this week’s program on KASM. This program is our way of reaching out to help families deal with those difficult days surrounding the death anniversary of a loved one.

“When in grief, we don’t just feel sad. We may feel numb, angry, guilty, afraid, confused or even relieved. Sometimes these feelings follow each other within a short period of time or they may occur simultaneously. As strange as some of these emotions may seem to you, they are normal and healthy. Allow yourself to feel whatever it is you are feeling without judging yourself. Talk about your feelings with someone who cares and can be a supportive listener. At times the seriousness of grief will weigh you down, so break free and give yourself permission to do something silly.”   Alan Wolfelt

Music & Memories for Sunday October 10th, 2021

Good morning and welcome to Music & Memories.

This is Linda Sue, and I am the grief specialist at Patton-Schad Funeral Home. It is my pleasure to bring you this week’s program on KASM. This program is our way of reaching out to help families deal with those difficult days surrounding the death anniversary of a loved one.

Pain. Pain in grief is awful. It’s deep and it's raw! No one can see the inner heart pain that is buried so deep. It is said that the deeper the love the deeper the pain. This is so true. One very good and healthy way to help the pain become softer is finding a trusted friend to share your story with. One’s goal is to not get over grief but rather to learn to live with it. Making grief your friend. Continue to tell the stories and share the memories.

Music & Memories Radio Script for Sunday October 3, 2021

Good morning and welcome to Music & Memories.

This is Linda Sue, and I am the grief specialist at Patton-Schad Funeral Home. It is my pleasure to bring you this week’s program on KASM. This program is our way of reaching out to help families deal with those difficult days surrounding the anniversary of a loved one.

Acknowledging the reality of your loved one’s death means that someone you loved is dead and will never be physically present to you again. You will embrace this reality in doses as you are ready. Finding a listening heart to assist you in processing the facts of the death of your loved one is crucial in your healing and moving forward in your grief journey. Never forget your loved one lives on, in you, through your memory. Continue to tell the stories and share the memories of your loved one; this keeps their legacy alive and well.
