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 May 22, 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.

No person has the right to condemn or judge you on how you repair your heart or how long you choose to grieve, because no one knows how much you’re hurting. Recovering takes time, and everyone heals at his or her own pace. There is no right or wrong way to grieve unless you’re hurting yourself or others. Continue to keep their legacy alive through the telling of the stories and sharing of the memories.

Music & Memories for Sunday May 15, 2022

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.

As the spring turns into summer, summer into fall… our grief pain changes as we move forward, changing with the seasons. We want the world to stop because of our pain but the reality of it all is that the cycles continue as we should too. Somedays each step forward can be painful but with each step forward our pain will slowly subside and get softer. Once we realize we can “never get over” the loss, we are guaranteed the pain will soften but will never really go away.  The greater the love the greater the pain. It is then that we start to heal and celebrate the legacy of our loved ones.

Music & Memories for Sunday May 8, 2022

  Music & Memories Radio for Sunday May 8, 2022                                                                                

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.

‘You will lose someone you can’t live without, and your heart will be badly broken, and the bad news is that you never completely get over the loss of your beloved. But this is also the good news. They live forever in your broken heart that doesn’t seal back up. And you come through. It’s like having a broken leg that never heals perfectly… that still hurts when the weather gets cold, but you learn to dance with the limp’.           Anne Lamott       Special blessings to all mother’s; in heaven and those still with us on this day.
