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 July 25, 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.

Speak their name: Someone I love has gone away and life is not the same. The greatest gift that you can give is just to speak their name. I need to hear the stories and the tales of days gone past. I need for you to understand these memories must last. We cannot make more memories since they’re no longer here; so when you speak of them to me IT’s MUSIC TO MY EARS!            Out of the Ashes…

Good morning and welcome to Music & Memories.

Shifting… As you are shifting, you will begin to realize that you are not the same person you used to be. The things you used to tolerate have become intolerable. When you once remained quiet, you are now speaking your truth. Where you once battled and argued, you are now choosing to remain silent. You are beginning to understand the value of your voice and there ae some situations that no longer deserve your time, energy and focus. This has become your new normal.
