The KPFA programmers once again found themselves with time left in their allotted slot after Stanley Elkins delivered his talk "The First Emancipation," so Philip Elwood filled that time with 15 minutes of music programming in line with the theme of the seminar. Elwood plays some cuts from a record (probably the Victor album produced in 1927) put out by Reverend F. W. McGee, a Detroit preacher. The songs feature McGee's choir, his lead vocal work, and his backing band. The tracks played are "With His stripes we are healed," "I looked down the line and I wondered," "Jesus, the Lord is Savior," "Fifty miles of elbow room," and finally "Jonah in the belly of the whale."
